The course is extremely basic, not very complete, and full of errors that are being dragged through multiple months, the errors have been flagged on the forums, and they are never fixed. The grading is made by peer review - which could be a good thing, but the rubric for grading are could be completely automated, and it isn't.

The programming assignment workload is reasonable, but there is little support and discussion to support a newbie programmer. Also I believe a graphic display of user input and the program outputs would be much easier to understand. Reading off the instructions are too open to interpretation.

There is also the grading scheme is not fine-grained enough. It could utilized better to provide a more structured approach to a solution.

For example,

loop (1 mark)

use of map ( 1 mark)

user of slice ( 1 mark)

So there will be 10 chcekpoints to verify and validate.

Using 2 points as aggregate scores, did not help to achieve that goal. It penalised students excessively in my opinins.

Nice follow-up on the first course, wish more focus would have been put on using interfaces

Way too easy and way too little background information or depth, plus lack of real-world examples and a lot of inaccurate information.

Quizzes and assignments contain mistakes, which make it hard (and in some cases impossible) to make it right.

Great Course! The part about interfaces could have been a little clearer, but I was able to get through it!
