This course takes Java beginners to the next level by covering object-oriented analysis and design. You will discover how to create modular, flexible, and reusable software, by applying object-oriented design principles and guidelines. And, you will be able to communicate these designs in a visual notation known as Unified Modelling Language (UML).

TOP REVIEWS FROM OBJECT-ORIENTED DESIGN
It has been a very thorough course on OOD and it's good both for novice programmers and experienced programmers as an essential reminder on OOD principles which they are often neglected.
Tying the assignments to an Android Studio project was overkill; the same principles could have been demonstrated with a SIMPLE java application.
Using Java and UML to start of with Design is a nice concept even though not heard in many Interviews but this course forms the foundations for Developers
there are some errors in assignment and material
in general the assignments are very labor-intensive and do not seem to add too much value for real-world projects
