Interesting course on an Interesting topic taken in a pleasant, enjoyable, and simple manner.\n\nNever did I feel bored or out of my depth even though I am a stranger to the topic.
The lectures were educational, and interesting without speaking down to you. I learned a lot without being overwhelmed

Nice and easy undergraduate course, but not useful for students seeking for a big picture of state-of-the-art cryptography. Content of this course is way too old.
Encryption/decryption of English characters are dinosaur technologies for telegraph, which itself has disappeared in modern communications.
Too many historical tales, too few modern technologies, and almost no technical details or math.
BTW, there are quite a few mistakes in slides, and the instructors don't response questions on discussion forums.
I don't believe students should start from the ancient age to learn modern cryptography, not very useful course in general.

The videos are way too long with too much info cramped up and there is no formative evaluation after each one. So when you get to the summative evaluation after like five 15min videos with too much info you basically dont remember half of it, so you end up going back to do all over again. They also dont provide any real material other that wikipedia links, a book with the topics taught would be way better, if I wanted to go to wikipedia I wouldnt be here. I like the subject but this course is not well made compared to others

not a lot of examples. teaching was way to boring.
I think this is the worst course in Coursera which I have taken. The lecture is very bad , only see the teacher saying from begining to the end, without prepare any animation and slides. I can not remember so much usefull knowledge about the Cryptosystem in the course, I should self learning a lot of things from the link after each course. The professor did not give me any more value but only some link from wikipedia.
