One of the most elementary courses taught in a magnificent manner. Magnus takes very simple and guides you to all necessary ideas. The real good thing about this course is this: You get to learn how to implement stuff.

Very good overview into the Automatic Control, full of information and very entertaining. I had no time do the homeworks, so I'm rating only the lectures. Fully recommended.

Nice, introduction to control theory. I leaned a lot but had hoped there would be something about building electronic motor controllers for robots. But all in all an excellent course. One small point of critic is that the optional programming problems is in Matlab (proprietary software) and can't run on octave (open source software).

A really good course. No programming! There is a lot of math but they introduced the concept of glue lectures to highlight the aspects from the class that will help you complete the quizzes - so it's not that hard to do it. Just make sure you know your calculus and you'll be fine. The instructor totally gets online learning and is one of the best around. He's engaging and informative. If you have an interest in this topic, or if you took the Machine Learning course and want to learn a radically different approach with Control Theory, this is the course for you.

I really enjoyed the class. If you are considering taking this class, it is important that you are fluent with the basics of linear algebra and calculus, otherwise you will be lost. It is set up to learn theory and then applications. The only draw-back is that there is no way to turn in the programming exercises, at least not that I could figure out. The result of that is loss of motivation to complete the programming assignments. Other classes have set up ways to submit code.

An interesting course, completely different from what I would expect from the name. No programming, but quite a lot of math. The covered concepts are not hard and are well explained, practical examples are included. The math was pretty challenging for me, I was never particularly good in differential equations and it's been quite some time since college. But the slides are clear and the quizzes are focused on practicing the hard parts. The workload is modest, about 1 hour of lectures per week and a quiz, which is not too hard, but requires to go through some calculation and thinking. Plus optional programming assignments in Matlab (which I didn't do as I don't have matlab). At the moment, I have no use for the knowledge I gained, but I still enjoyed the course and would recommend it as an intro to robotics.
