    Course is just about Ok. Gives you a very basic understanding of cyber security. Does anyone actually read through the thousands of pages of material that they provide links to?

    Unfortunately, this was the lowest quality course I have taken on Coursera. While some of the reading material linked in the weekly sessions was of acceptable quality, the videos were poorly produced, too short, and so vague as to be nearly completely unhelpful. There should have been more videos or written material to scaffold the reading sections. In the final quiz/exam there was even a question repeated twice, which shows that there was remarkably little care in preparing material for the course. Unlike in other courses I’ve taken (and enjoyed), I don’t feel like the course certificate I’ve earned actually represents an achievement, and reflects poorly on Coursera as a platform.

    The videos are only a few minutes long and not informative. You have to read a lot of documents before you can take the test. Without the documents it is impossible to pass the tests at the end of each module. The materials you have to read are old some are from 2006 there have been some changes in technology since then. Some other links are broken so that you cannot access the documents at all. I cannot recommend this course.

    This course is a waste of time, quality of the videos is really poor, I don’t recommend to take this course if you have to take this course go straight to the test and if you fail any go to the readings. I finished the course because I won the certificate for free. I hope Coursera punish this kind of courses, the lack of effort the main knowledge you will learn from this course its from another online course ( they give you a link to another course) or Public information.

    I want to be deeply honest, I really thought this course was made better, I was really hyped when I joined, because the title was really standing out. Yet. I learned something new, so I can’t claim everything was already out, but yes, it could have been better.

    Many broken links in the course reading list, and peer reviewed essays were unfairly rated other students didn’t follow instructions for ratings. Many exam questions were impossible to find in the reading material or via a search. Broken links may have prevented me from finding important material I needed to be able to study certain topics.

    This course is in desperate need of an instructional designer. The content has no scaffolding, the quizzes can be easily passed without reviewing the material, a large percentage of links are broken and fail to redirect, the instructor is hardly present in the course, and the already short instructional videos are bracketed by ridiculously long and ludicrously soundtracked intros and outros.

    More that a course is a collection of sometimes outdated documents. The videos are very short and transmit very few information. Graded tests are often trivial. Does not worth the price.

    The 3 stars are because it is a basic course, the questions were not hard, it will be like a introductory course for anyone wanting to start in cybersecurity, but is just the visible part of the iceberg.

    A good course for learning more about cyber security. I was disappointed with the fact that most of the course work readings are just links to many different external sites with a handful of sites not working. It seems like minimal effort was put in to build this course topic.

    There are a lot of dead links in the materials to read. Also, while the resources provided are helpful, there is very little to no teaching in the course. It’s simply reading the collection of materials.

    This course was a predominantly a series of links to tons of readings punctuated by quizzes, very short videos, and one peer assignment. Many of the links did not work. The ones that did led to some reasonable documents, some 100+ page documents, and a 110+ slide presentation. One link (https://www.open.edu/openlearn/science maths technology/computing and ict/systems computer/network security/content section 0?active tab description tab) led to an OpenLearn course that looked far better. It’s material was self contained and there were interactive questions throughout. The positives for this course were the one peer assignment and the fact that the 2 minute videos were from a wide variety of security professionals. Overall, this has been one of the worst Coursera courses I’ve taken and I recommend scrubbing it and re thinking the format for flow and interactivity.

    A good balance of basic information and an introductory course to cybersecurity. I have around 1 year of experience in the domain and thus I found things a little too basic. But the quality of the reading materials is good. Videos have a little too much graphics which is a little unnecessary, all the fancy sounds at the starting and ending, but I guess that can be just skipped. I really liked the reading materials and I recommend everyone to read everything, also the supplementary readings. They’re super informative. Other than that, a good course for beginners and a decent course for intermediates. Experts, please do not go for it, you’ll face deja vu of all the things you already learned. Thank you to everyone who put this course together. One step closer to attaining my goal.

    It’s a great course. It covers many areas of information security, mainly the non technical part. With this material it is possible to plan the implementation of an information security system in most small and medium sized companies. The content for me was very practical and easy to understand. Negative points are few texts and videos of their own and many external references. And some of these external references are out of date or have hyperlinks disabled.

    I personally do not like this course much. It is not detailed and video explanation is very limited. You are suppose to read material available online through out the course and that is the main source of information. The course is not well structured and not a lot of effort has been put into this course. I feel it is lagging and could be better in terms of quality. Also the background music gets annoying after a while.
