Product is rated as #52 in category Android Development

This 4 week MOOC builds upon the core Android app components and concurrency frameworks covered in Course 2 by focusing on started and bound services, local inter–process communication (IPC), and content providers. Case study apps will be examined from multiple perspectives to learn how to program these app components using Android’s material design paradigm. Students will work incrementally on a hands–on project involving a material design–based RSS reader app. Each week you will add additional capabilities to the project, based on material covered in the lecture videos. You’ll spend roughly 4 hours per week watching video lectures, taking quizzes, and programming assignments with Java and Android.

    This was a really good course, you’ll learn, by example, theory and practice, why, how and when to use these Android App Components. Reading the entire code of each assignment is recommended, otherwise you may not fully understand why your code works, also, you may learn additional things by doing it.

    Tricky concepts explained in a good and practicle way… But you will have to spend much time by reading and analyzing examples and solving optional exercises… And reviewing past Moocs to extract all date from this mooc.

    too much academic and theoretical materials, the instructor is explaining in a very advanced way for beginners, of course i got benefit from it, but i think it should be more easy and understandable and thanks a lot for your effort, it is really appreciated best luck

    I love the detail on each of the components and the real world examples, just like the MOOC before this one. These are the kind of lectures and examples you can come back to time and time again. The material is tough, so you likely won’t understand it fully your first time through the MOOC, but you’ll get to know it better over time as you consult it while you make your own stuff.

    There is no evaluation in this class. I prefer classes with programming assignments that are machine unit tested on the server. It’s possible to just take a quiz twice, and get 100% without knowing anything.

    Another course with great content in the respective specialization. Local IPC got my head spinning for a while, but that’s good because the harder the material you study and learn, the better you get at it.

    Very Android Architecture focused and very Design Pattern oriented. This is a valuable course on Android because it goes deep into the details of the Full Stack of Android Services. Highly Recommended!

    This course does not focus on practice and coding, being an introductory course. However, there are several optional tasks that dwell deeper into coding which is good if you have extra time to spend here. Overall the course is good for beginners and can be a refresh for experienced programmers.

    Shows many options for communicating between services and activities in a way that just overwhelms the student and confuses the various approaches.

    The content of the course is highly relevant, but the assignment/quiz structure may not work well for all learners. Like the previous course in the specialization, lecture videos and screenshares from Doug Schmidt’s college courses, optional assignments, and simple quizzes make up the course. Your initiative to apply what is being taught is what makes the course worthwhile, and if you were to breeze through without doing the optional assignments, you may come away without absorbing much of what’s being taught here. On the other hand, if you take the initiative to apply these concepts to projects on your own, you’ll be rewarded by the focused explanations in the videos and what you’re asked to do in the programming assignments which are specifically engineered to make you use what’s taught. It’s a great course, but requires motivation on your part!

    The lessons are excellent. Unfortunately there is a lack of practical application of what’s taught in the lessons. The optional exercises are a start, but aren’t optimal. They are better suited to the actual material than the exercises in the previous MOOC though. Especially the lessons on services and ipc were quite good. If this course had better exercise material, it would be top!

    Only three stars because of the last week. I do not think that content providers are well explained here.

    It was a really helpful course and gives detailed and in depth explanation about how services, communication and content providers work in android internally. The course also gives an understanding to implement what is taught practically with simple programming examples.
