This is a great course in parallel programming. The videos were very clear, summaries reinforced the video material and the programming projects and quizzes were challenging but not overwhelming.
Great course. Introduces Parallel Programming in Java in a gentle way.\n\nKudos to Professor Vivek Sarkar for simplifying complex concepts and presenting them in an elegant manner.

The courses covers broadly the new synchronization primitives in Java8. It is very clear and demonstrative. It is very shallow though.
By Pushkar S•
A good place to start. Fundamental parallel programming concepts taught in a simple manner. Liked the quiz and demo projects.
By Vitalii D•
Thank you for this course! Really interesting, but lacks the real world examples and has little number of tasks to complete.
By Nanditha K R•
The concepts are explained well. Quizzes and mini project has good details to understand the concept better.
By Abir M•
Could have had more demonstrations, or even examples for reference. Overall, it was a very good course.
By Marcin K•
More details on concurrency would be a huge benefit to course and students (even as optional material)
By Johannes D•
Good course that gave you a good overview. The code assignments code have been a little more advanced.

Simple delivery, very manageable work load, and still something tangible to take away from the course.
By Ivan K•
It was useful and interesting course, however, I'd like to see more complicated practical tasks
By Xiao X•
-1 star due to the too-easy homework.
I wish the homework can be harder and more challenging.
By Wang S•
it'll be perfect if mini projects can deeper test what we've learned in the class.
By Noam Y•
Great material. Interesting lectures. The tasks are not comprehensive enough.
By Isaac A•
Enjoyed this course a lot! Wished the projects were a little more substantial

thanks to coursera.to give a simple way to solve parallel programming
By Prabhakar k•
i learn new way to do parallel programming in java.thanks to coursera
By Wei H•
the lecturer should wear black shirt to make the video more readable.
By Vishal V•
Great Learning and understanding the parallelism concepts in java
By satwik b•
please be more elaborate regarding programming assignments
By Prasanth R•
The homework was too simple, could use better examples.
By Cong X•
Overall informative but way too easy on the projects...
By aniket k•
Good explanation; minimal hands-on experience.
By Xiao L•
Programming assignments are a bit too easy
By vini g•
Would like more assignments and examples.
By Alexander S•
Good course but very easy assignments
By Ping G•
great course, learn a lot!
