This is an extremely good course and I learned a lot. Thank you very much sir "Timothy Scherr " and all the people who make this a such a nice one. Also thank you very much "COURSERA" !!!
This course is very basic level and I encourage all the electronics students must take this course. Thank you Timothy Scherr Sir, he explained all the concepts with detailed explanation.

I took an FPGA course in college and wanted to refresh my knowledge. This course did a nice job of introducing the FPGA Quartus software and some basic knowledge about FPGAs. However, the FPGA jargon is overwhelming. To an experienced engineer, it sounds normal, but to new students, it's too difficult to keep up with.
Week 3 was not helpful. No one wants to sit and read datasheets, much less listen to someone else read datasheets (no offense to Dr. Scherr!). Week 3's content would have been better suited to a project format. For example, each student researches an FPGA of their choice (from a instructor chosen selection), then discusses/shares their information with the discussion board. Sort of like the Jigsaw Method teaching style.
I do appreciate taking this class and feel that it has helped me gain a foundation in FPGA. Thank you for your course!

Overall a pretty gentle introduction into FPGA design. The course gives a good overview of the FPGA workflow with practical examples. However, the assessments emphasize quite a bit of rote memorization rather than logical learning. I would recommend future revisions to course material to more heavily emphasize the digital logic constructs fundamental to FPGA design rather than discussion of commercial products.

Good overview however not very exciting. One week seemed to be dedicated to almost reading out spec/selection guides of FPGA and it sounded monotonous. Week 4 was much more involving and took more than usual time to finish. There was a mentioned 3 more specializations but didn't hear what those are and when those will start.

not very good for beginners.
First week was good, from second week on shows a lot of details without explaining the motivation behind them which makes the course really boring.
Dropped the course.

The first 3 weeks were excellent. Instead of designing NIOS 2 processor in week 4 could develop pipemult from the scratch right by developing each block instead of providing ready-made blocks.

Received minimal support for issues that came up during the course. I think the instructors need to be active in resolving issues that may come up during installation and execution.

I would learn many thing about "Introduction to FPGA Design for Embedded Systems" from this course
By Ammar A K•
There should be more examples of how to practically code and run FPGA using VHDL
