I have done a few computer science courses already and some of them were related to embedded systems. This is one of the best so far.\n\nHigher level than a introductory course.\n\nHighly advisable.
The course was excellent for me, as a beginner. Of course, the learning curve was steep and the assignments challenging, but I learnt a lot. Thanks you Coursera and University of Colorado, Boulder.

The course is good for beginners, but, a strong basis is needed.
If this would be your first contact, keep calm, a lot of challenges will come during 3 weeks, including the Virtual Machine setup since the first minute.
All the challenges are affordable, and, with more than 10 hours / week, will be passable, but, there will be a lack of basis if you didn't have it when you started the course.
Some videos have not the correct transcription, so, it is hard to search for a specific matter if you want to. Thankfully, there are many information all around the web.
At the end, you will be able to make your own programs and simulate them in your own computer.

Good and easy contant and well explain
But i become so disappointed with the assessment it's so hard and not match the content
I agree it's about the learning contant but it's not easy like it
There weren't many examples to understand the assessment and do it easily
I made many Searches on Google to understand and to be able to do the assessment
I suggest and hope that you prepare some new videos to practice more and to be able to solve my assessment problems

The course is good and well structured, but do not expect any support from the instructor or moderators during the course. There is no way for you to review a decision during peer reviews. I had to upload the same submissions again due to incompetent peers marking my answers as wrong.

An interesting course but the assignment goals aren't always the clearest. While i understand the importance of code reviews, I don't believe that they are the best way to grade assignments due to the varying skill levels of persons taking the course.

The content is well crafted, there are some rough issues around the homework and the support in the forums is null.

It's a good basic Intro but does not go into details as I would expect.

While this course has some very good information, the way it's presented is really poor.
After the information tsunami of every video, at the end of each week there is an assignment which does a bad job of bridging the gap between what was taught and how it should be applied. It feels vague, and I spent hours merely deciphering the requirements of the project. The last assignment was a huge letdown - almost no 'true' embedded programming at all, simply pointer tricks, fumbling with makefiles, gcc flags, and print statements. It was a repackaging of all the other assignments into one ambiguous conglomerate.

Listening to the lectures and reading the material is not enough to get more than 20-40% of the max score in some of the tests. The reviewers can give lower scores even if the assignment has been done correctly, just because why not, Coursera couldn't care less. References/paths are often out-of-date. Neither the Android app, nor the web interface displays the correct answers.
All are basics only. . . and its not a hands on training

I can assure you that if you are a beginner and thinking to get knowledge about the subject and learn something useful than u are at a very wrong place. If you are from India just go to NPTEL channel on youtube and learn from there because this course is a package of unnecessary high-level things without any explanation.
the professor will explain some topics well like memory management but will not explain about the practical codes (which are useless) he will write not even a bit.
So don't waste ur time just enrol in some other course or as mentioned learn on youtube.
