I took and passed the M101J course using Eclipse and was able to navigate that intuitively no problem.
This course M220J, I am not starting off well. Not sure where to start to explain…
I got the data loaded on Atlas, and the app running on Eclipse, and able to view the app on browser.
Class seems to be catered heavily towards intellij.
- Within Eclipse, JUnit test are not all working.
- At the cmd line window, if I run all the test (take Eclipse out of the picture) I still do not get all the test to run using “mvn test”
- I am stuck at " Chapter 0: Introduction and Setup ### README" section, because not all test are running.
I decided to go ahead, and click the “Proceed to the Next Section” green button at the bottom, even though JUnit test are not all running, and I finally see a couple of videos on the prior section that I am stuck on, and did not want to proceed because I had not completed Chapter 0.
I get to a video called " Chapter 1: Driver Setup ### Introduction to Chapter 1" and it starts off by him saying we have already covered all the “book keeping for this course” … I must of missed it.
The book keeping - where are my quiz results, how many quizzes, or chapters in this course, how is the course graded, homework weight and turning in deadlines, scoring…??? This course navigation layout is not that intuitive to me.
On the application.properties file, It would be cleaner to have labeled it for us to fill in our URI, instead of like this:
I am frustrated, feels like I am teaching myself by trial and error, instead of being taught by an instructor. I had the same experience in M101J, but stuck with it.
Price is right on this course, but gosh I just do not like the “you go figure it out pattern” of teaching it is just so so time consuming. …did I mention frustration.
The discussion board, … I am confused, is this our class discussions/post, there are post dating back before our class started, do those post still apply, or was the class content addressed and clarified so those old post are no longer relevant?
