Lecture videos and excises are OK. But please, reorganise the sequence of the quizzes and assignments! Because some of the quizzes cover some points too early, and those points will be mentioned in the future sections one or two weeks later. Also there are some assignments which appears so late, that I thought we should have already finished it up in the previous weeks! (e.g.,Assignment 4 :Pthreads with CPU core affinity in Linux to Emulate AMP, which I think should have been done in Week2 or Week3 already) Other things including the knowledge and skills taught in the lectures are basically quite good, so I will give an total of 5 stars, thanks:)

Excelent practical & introductory course about RT embedded system and how to implement a Rate Monotonic schedule and see his feasibility, by his LUB and exact study, whithout getting too much in detail about the teory. Using POSIX extension in Linux, AMP emulation with affinity with the easy to get going Raspberry Pi.

Inspiring course contents. Assignments clarity to be improved.

It is not easy to understand what they ask for in assignments. There are many comments about it in the first assignments.

Assignment descriptions could be clearer

It needs a good knowledge of POSIX in the beginning. That was not stated in the course description. I was searching for resources to learn POSIX. Also the first assignment is asking to submit syslog file. It assumes that all learners know what a syslog file is. Also, the assignment output format is not clear.

order of the lectures is rather messy: some topics are taken as being discussed but which only follow much later in the course.
there is a lot of repetition in the lectures: some concepts are explained in code reviews and twice within the lectures.

The content is interesting although a bit repetitive. The assignment descriptions are very unclear and unorganized.

This course is horrible! In the first week, the "instructor" provides very little actual information, provides you four of his own projects that you can review all on your own with no guidance. Oh wait, you can only access own of the projects, the other four are locked away on the university's FTP server. But don't worry, your frustration isn't over yet, when you attempt to work with the one that is actually available, the instructions are so vague and unclear that you'll spend more time trying to figure out what you're supposed to be doing, and how to submit it in a way that is successful, that you'll have spent more time on that, then listening to the instructor. Complete waste of time and effort!!

This course is the worst stay away!
The structure is a mess, a lot of videos without even a hint of why the solution is good.
Lots and lots references to #read the manual", so why do I need the course? I already knew where to find tons of hard to read texts,
No credentials to download material needed to pass exams
I've wasted countless hours trying to understand what to do. It's not the subject matter that is hard, this course makes it hard :-c
I'll try to get a refund
