A fascinating teaching technique, delivering quality content with a well-thought quizzes system! It' hard to find better courses in the domain of Finite Difference and Spectral Element methods
This is an excellent course as I have found. The instructor has taught us many important concepts including the detailed codes. I would love to join further courses from Prof. Igel.

The video lectures are very well made and great effort is made to present concepts in an understandable way. The existence of the Jupyter notebooks greatly compliment the course's objectives. There is a lot of content and the author gives initiative to examine the given code with the follow along videos. The material is quite extensive and if someone wants to get into more details in certain parts they might be unsatisfied. However the course gives a good outlook of the methods contained.

Overall, a nice overview of numerical methods to solving PDEs. Most positive aspects of the course: relatively concise, implementation-oriented. Most negative aspects of the course: examples all focused on wave equation + some concepts introduced too fast in the second half of the course.

The high quality course - videos with thoughtful presentation at the background and well explained Jupyter notebooks in Python. Topics beyond the course are mentioned in the last video in the best traditions of a good serial season. Waiting for the next season!

Overall an excellent introduction. The Jupyter notebooks are a great format for these sorts of demonstrations. I do feel that the Finite/Spectral element segments would be more clear if they explained the mathematical derivations in more detail.

It was a very interesting class on numerical methods. I think it can be improved if homework assignment were given to help reinforce the lectures. The material was taught in a logical order and I enjoyed the overview of each method.

As someone who had prior but not so strong introduction to numerical methods, this course helped me bridge the gap between theory and implementation in code. Personally, I think the programming exercises are too few.

I liked how the course was structured and well curated. However I feel it can be improved with more intuitive explanations of the numerous mathematical concepts introduced.

A nice course for learning numerical methods. Though it requires a little advanced calculus but python codes are clear and understandable.

It was a great course. I think you should had included the lambda parameter into the elastic wave propagation.

Excellence course delivery with practical applications.

Great, learner-friendly introduction to the subject

some parts of the courses should be broken down into smaller steps or at least add links to a pdf document where the demonstration /solution is broken down into easy-to-follow steps. so videos had mistakes that were corrected after they were played, I found this distracting, you could just redo the video or edit it on the spot rather than later.
I liked the tone and clarity of Heiner explanations, I loved the visual interpretations of the mathematical concepts. I can see that there was much more knowledge he could deliver which was outside of the scope of this course. and I think he should, the beauty of online courses is that it could branches to as much fundamental concepts as the leaner is willing to take.

There should be some PDF notes of the equations, you cannot expect people to memorize and learn all the quiz topics. With PDF notes I would have given 2-3 stars more, sorry, but that's how it is. As an engineer with some background in the field and some training, I however completed. But this is what you need to do, if you want better satisfaction, sorry.

The course could have been extended for longer duration so that the topics could have been explored in detail, specifically the math behind the Spectral element method. Further, having no coding background makes it really hard to implement the math into codes. Hence, the coding part also requires extended focus.
