This coursework helped me to know the working of Intel architecture. How to optimize the code over the existing architecture with the help of vectorization and multithreading.
This was a very good experience and I will get additional marks for this in Computer Architecture Thanks to Coursera

Good course in my opinion. It might seem short, but introduces a lot of different important topics and gives you the tools and information to continue learning as far as you want.
I faced some technical issues with the remote cluster towards the end, and the last lab is a bit confusing. The forum and the author of the course are there to help you out, though.
I would recommend this course.

A decent overview of modern parallel programming. Learnt a few things. Thanks. Could have been 5 stars if the production quality of the course is not poor (video stutters except when the slide is on, also there are abrupt breaks switching from video to slides). I wish this course showed writing portable code throughout instead of just Intel.

Very good course for the various aspects of parallelism. There several ways to parallelize and this course touched on all of them. Each of the topics could be a whole course in itself, this course did well to stay to the fundamentals. There is a lot that I will take with me and apply to my work in software development.

The material and learning is great! Cutting 1 star because some of the assignments have inaccurate information about how to run the program, so there could have been more care on part of the instructor there, but overall, a very useful course for enhancing your understanding about parallel computing

Some concepts are difficult to understand if you don't have a good background in computer science. The labs are about math problems that sometimes you don't understand. But in general it is a good introducing course.

Best course to "start" parallelization on Intel architecture. However, this is just beginning a lot more to be discovered after this course. This course gives hands-on experience on intel architecture.

A nice introduction to parallelism on Intel Architecture, some problem with cuts in some videos but we have the lecture on our side for complementary informations.

Good course material and instructor. But discussion forum is awfully quiet. Looks as if no other courses on this specialization are available anymore.

A very good course with excellent material to enhance your knowledge. The quality of some videos could be improved (sudden changes/gaps).
By Jay T•
It was a nice course. I got a chance to learn many things, and worked really hard to complete the course.

Fairly comprehensive course, though the content can be improved by going into a little more depth.
By Mahalingam P R•
Some more introduction can be given to support the programming exercises. But exposure is good.
By TOMISLAV D N•
It needs a discussion prompt for people taking the course around the homework tasks.
By Chaitanya K•
Would have liked more exploring in the OpenMP section, but awesome course overall

I HAVE LEARNT A LOT FROM THIS COURSE AND GOT COMPLETE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT PARALLELISM

Very good course for learning fundamentals of parallelism. I enjoyed it.
By Ruhullah S•
Highly informative course with a steep learning curve but fruitful.
By Nasirov A•
Course content is great but wish there were more exercises.
By Aditi T•
Good course. Assignments need to be explained clearly.

IT really help just a line go for this course
