Great course! Learned a lot about Cyber Warfare and how countries can build up trust and cooperation between themselves to tackle third party threats in the cyberspace.
I have learnt the causes of cyber conflicts and raising tensions among nations, the causes and how nations can come to mutual understanding or agreements. Thanks.

Some of the supporting reading materials were dated and did not reflect the current thinking or state of play in the cyber security space. The course could have benefited from spending significantly more time discussing actual international cyber conflict case studies than the theory or psychology underlying cyber security theory.

The videos were not always easy to understand because of the unclear pronouncing of the key speaker. Also although most of the tests were easy to complete, the ones that you had to write the answer down instead of only choosing the correct answer, were hard since if one word you wrote was wrong you lost the question.

Much of the literature was unavailable which I think is a downside. Also, while interesting, the topics were covered only superficially and I felt that that questions during the videos and at the end of the module were very easy and did not challenge the participant to think or research.

This was a very difficult course due to the rate at which the instructor spoke and his dialect. The pacing was off and I found that I had to keep going back to read the transcript just to know which words he was pronouncing.
The English of one of the professors is rather hard to understand (and at times completely unintelligible); the subtitles are not really helpful in these instances (and at times they are clearly incorrect/misleading).

Could make use of more real world examples. Hacktivism and individual actors receive more attention than they deserve given their extremely limited capabilities. Over all a good class though.

While informative and interesting, I believe the course hadn't been updated in a few years and some of the links to further readings didn't work. I really enjoyed what I studied.

I like the comparisons between past physical wars and current cyberwar. However, the course take the long way to explain very basic elements of nations interactions and trust.

Professor quality was not up to expected. Material was interesting, but lectures could have been less monotone. Some of the links to reading material were broken.
An interesting course, informative, yet the instructor speaks in a nervous way and can be very challenging to understand well from him and enjoy the course

Cyber topic speaker needs more speaking practice: too wooden, h. Need to include downloadable files of lecture slides.

Content is not always focused on main topic and questions of quizzes are not clear, answers are ambiguous.

Informative, however Indian dude's pronunciation is awful, luckily they have subtitles.

It's Ok, nothing much to gain iin terms of knowledge realted to cyber conflict.
by Oleksandr K•
Way too basic: about everything and nothing at the same time.
by Thomas C•
Wished the course was a deeper dive into this area.

Was ok, got a little boring after week 2
by Francesco P•
I felt the course was incomplete

great work with best effort
by Ionut M C•
Not very challenging.
Not very in depth.
Too much generic

I think the course was OK, though not much more than that.
I was rather disappointed from the way professor Sanjay Goel carried his part: It was very dry. Not interesting. It was clear that he was reading from his papers rather then telling/ sharing something with us. It's almost better to just read the text- only that then one misses the pop-up questions.
Professor Williams lectures were much better to my opinion. He is far more engaged. I found his part more interesting and easier to follow.
Having said that, I'd like to thank them both for creating this course and putting an effort.

For me this course lacks substance. It is just high level and a quick insight. I feel it should be developed much further, broader and deeper before it should be on this platform. It might be good if you are completely unaware of the topic, but working in IT this brings nothing new.

Too much emphasis on the psychology of conflict. The last lecture references future lectures, but none exist. Doesn't seem to be well-organized.
