Summary View

What are the major strengths and weaknesses of the instructor?

  • I thought Prof Riely did a great job presenting the material, despite the restrictive remote nature of this quarter's classes. I do think it would have been helpful if he had added supplementary practice problems that helped us prepare for exams.
  • Clear explanations, good range of knowledge about different tools, techniques, and technologies related to the material and in the industry in general.
  • Excellent content delivery

What aspects of this course were most beneficial to you?

  • Surveying different programming languages and their concepts is a great way to become agile and pick up new languages, so I found this course to be very helpful.
  • Assignments and worksheets
  • Online video content
  • worksheets
  • the worksheets and homework.

What suggestions do you have that could help improve the course?

  • I would probably add practice problems that better resemble the material presented on exams. I felt like there was somewhat of a disconnect between the exams and the worksheets/assignments.
  • I'm not sure where I stand in the class with regards to grades.
  • More examples to be worked over in video lectures.

Do you have comments on the grading procedures and exams?
