Good Information, I enjoy staying on top of technology..

Course is nicely organized and gives good overview of blockchain related technologies. However the world of blockchain is evolving very quickly so many part has to be updated at least every year (e.g. IPFS). From other side there are technologies that create some hype, but won’t last long or won’t have long lasting impact, thus it seems doubtful to include these topic in the course. Overall I enjoyed the course and can recommend it to quickly get into the field.

No issues with course content. A few hurdles faced during the final project due to the difference in hashes and the changes in the UI which were not taken into consideration for the quiz at the end of the course.

It is very practical, and loved the Augur, Grid+, and Escrow which is not usually mentioned in any other blockchain courses

Nice knowledge overview

Never liked the approach where professor forces you to learn one specific app. And tests are poorly designed. Assembling questions for specific version of application is poor choice. Students are left with choice to pick newer version for passing tests and tests are not aligned with new versions.

No discrete information about the platforms are given in the course. The course can be developed further with a detailed basic hands on tutorial for new platforms.

The associated english dialog is often incorrect and confusing, the end project has not been kept up to date with the ipfs UI. for example there is no Connection Tab in the IPFS.

Very bad course. Jumps between high level boring specs to demos with too many details, the high level and demos just don’t connect. also the “Module Objective” and “Summary” slides takes too much time from a few minutes sections, making them feel strange and old fashioned.

The course was quite resourceful holistically. Connection with instructor was lacking due lack in eye contact ; almost as if the material is being read out from monitor.
Peter J –
Great class, thank you.

Definitely, I have to say it must to be updated. Used softwares are so old, many of source links are broken, so then I struggled and spent much time to figure out and fix the incompatibility myself during the course. Its difficulty is set to intermediate though, contents are so basic. You can’t use the skills in real world right after this course. But, Despite all of these shortcomings, the reason why I gave this course 5 stars, if you are really on the first step to blockchain world without any knowledge, you will learn all of the basic concepts of blockchain in this course. Be patient. After complete this course, you can understand almost all of the articles and words of blockchain. Obviously, this lecture doesn’t make you an expert but, it makes you prepared one to dive into blockchain world. PS. Though I have poor English skills, there is no difficult to understand all of your words. Thank you.
