great course. Matthew is a very experienced on the topic so he shared us lots of case studies which is very beneficial.

Overall good. But some of the lab instructions are a little out of date, which confused students.

This was a good concise course and all information was presented clearly and well spread out.

Course was well presented the supplied camera and head phones were plus in making the virtual course as real as it can get.

Course was great, labs very useful, great to have hands on experience with some of the SDKs.
