Excellent explanations and amount of course work for practice, the tests made good use of the examples and work given, I am satisfied with what I learned in this course and see it's real world usage.

Great course, it does help to have some background knowledge in another language but it is doable without any. goes through some fun projects but also some work usable items such as CSV parsing.

First assignment was very poorly prepared with setters and getters.

The overall quality of this course is great for beginners like me.
I really like how they sequence the videos as in a problem - abstraction - pseudo code - java code way.
Yet I have some thoughts I'd like to share with you guys. The first is that I saw less-than-average discussions in the forum, especially the professors/TAs seem to be less active than other courses I have taken in the past. The other is that after passing the whole course, I would personally very much like to see a sample answer given by teaching group or one selected from the student submissions. It helped a lot to see some of the details regarding logic and style in my previously courses. As for student submission, I knew some course has built a code submission system that would automatically grade the code based on ( I assume) multiple case testings.

The course itself is Ok, but I would suggest two things:

As usual the 4 professors(presenters) have done an excellent job. The resources, videos, assignments and quizzes are very helpful, well thought out and comprehensive. They have done an enormous amount of work.
But there seem to be problems with the import edu.duke.* due to installation problems (e.g. Windows 10).
Maybe include 3 videos like:( example from other Coursera courses e.g. R Programming)
Installing BlueJ on a Mac
Installing BlueJ on Windows
Installing Bluej on (Mac) ; including these would enable me to give a rating of 5 stars.
For the beginner programmer this would help a lot.
I know there is the Discussions forum (very helpful) and students must sweat a bit to get BlueJ to work on some messy Operating Systems but this is my comment as a Beta Tester

Great course and delivery!
If only there would be more help in the forums by assistants or tutors it would have gotten a 5 star

PLEASE teach us how to use a better IDE. BlueJ sucks, compared to, for example, something like Spyder for Python. PLEASE.

Love the course structure, very simple. Teachers start with simple concepts and eventually solve real life problems, which sound very complex otherwise.

I really enjoyed the coursework for this class. In particular, I loved how challenging some of the assignments were. However, I do hate that I cannot submit final quiz answers without paying for the course. I also did not like how little help there seemed to be offered to some individuals on the forum regarding issues they were facing with their code (specifically with the GeneFinder project).
I took three of the courses from Michigan on working with Python and they were completely open to complete without payment (which means you opt not to get a verified certificate). I wish that this course, and the specialization that it is part of, fell into the same category.

It is a practical and short course to learn the basics of Java Programming. I like it.

Thank you for the course, the only improvement i could think of is to improve contents for non English speaking people. E.g. You say decimal places, we say numbers after comma.

It's pretty good, but I just don't like to use BlueJ and their API...
