I learned a lot through this course and was able to apply some of my learnings to my current work. Definitely would like to recommend this course!
It was a very good and comprehensive course especially for those who want to work on IoT based projects and not have much knowledge of software

The course gives a nice glimpse on how systems can be planned and documented. I liked the questions between videos, because they highlighted the important points and helped me understand the topic better. Videos were high-quality. I liked that the important points were shown as text in videos at the same time as the professor or instructor talked about the topic. That gave me both visual and auditory stimulus and thus helped me learn the topic more efficiently. The quizzes asked about important things and gave really good feedback for both correct and incorrect answers. The reading tasks were otherwise correctly timed, but reading the ADD paper took me more like 2-3 hours than promised 20 minutes. As said, the course gave a nice glimpse to one type of planning and documenting the system, so it feels bit exaggerating to promise the students to become software architects after the course. But this is one step forward that goal, thank you for this course!

In terms of Theory for General Software Architecture this Course is a good refresher for a person who is working with Software Architecture already.
The Course could have more focused on IoT specific scenarios compared to Generic Software Architecture. What i recommend is to change the course title and have a separate one for IoT specific matters.
If the presenters can provide more practical examples that will help remember how and where we can apply these scenarios.
Overall this course content is good and interesting to watch.

Good : It is a very concise course with each week session providing references to books for learning more in depth. Overall I am very satisfied and glad to take this course.
Improvements: A lot of information squeezed into short videos. Students would benefit more if there are a bit more videos covering all topics in depth not just refer them to chapters in a book. Some questions are little bit ambiguous. I think reading the book along with this course is very important to understand clearly and apply it at work.

The course covers a wide range of aspects about Software Architecture, even beyond the scope of IoT. The peer review assignments help to put into practice some of the concepts, which may seem to be quite abstract at first glance. An improvement suggestion would be to provide more exercises to work on the case study presented in the last units, in order to take advantage of the additional material provided.

A solid course which brings methods and examples to qualify and quantify requirements and their attributes.
Modifiability and interoperability for instance are applied to IoT.
Tradeoffs and techniques in architecture design and evolution are well explained.
Good background reading material.
Homework is quite difficult to understand and do.

The course is almost focus on the SA for traditional software , not too much example, theories and miss some important core components of IoT architecture and especially is security that is also most important quality attribute for IoT project
By Jersey B•
Excellent course as an introduction and overview of generic software architecture concepts. It would be great to get more in depth information about IOT specific patterns and technologies from the architecture trade-off perspective.
By Felipe C•
Good overall course on software architecure with an emphasys on ADD and a little about IoT. Would like to have dug a little deeper and maybe have some more practical exercises.
By Roosvelt S O•
Pros: The content is relevant, you receive valuable and extense info properly summarize. Cons: lack of participants for reviewing the multiple assigments.
By Thu H T•
Useful course, but some content a little complicate. Better if can give us more detail for 1 project from the beginning
By Ligang S•
This lesson is a very good guideline of Quality Attribute Driven Software Architecture design.

Very good course and material. Can be downloaded and read again .

Good, but not so deeply good

A very designed course

For someone like me who is new to Software Architecture, this course gave some basic understanding.
I expected the concepts to be explained more effectively. I hardly understood the DYAMAND example given at the end of the course.
By Freek W•
For someone who's been a senior software engineer for a bunch of years, the topics on design patterns and tactics could have dug a bit deeper.
By Mikhail K•
Too much theory and very little practice.
By Yiling L•
This English course was not easy to understand for me.
Besides, I hope it would have been more interesting.

I didn't learn a lot from this course. It didn't explain technical IT architectures of IoT.
