It was a great course where I have learnt many things about the Cyber security Domain. Few things I knew few things I though I know but everything combined it was great Learning experience. Thank You.
The Cybersecurity course was very complete and interesting. I enjoyed forums and videos.
This course has motivated me to learn more about Information Security.
Excellent content !

The instructor is not the instructor, he just appear in 1 video of 2 minute. The course is not 8 hours, if you sum the Estimated Reading Time is around 24 hours. The Estimated Reading Time is awful , it's underestimated it takes much longer to read everything they propose (200 hours aprox).

Could have utilized video lectures more. Questions on final exam did not seem to relate to materials covered in course. Course seems to just comprise 1 or 2 minute long video lectures and then direct students to vast amounts of online reading material.

Pretty average and way too short/fast paced videos. Felt like it was put together on the fly. I don't usually review but this was not great, the reading material they linked to was the best content overall.

I think this course was very poorly run with shallow content and no interaction with the course facilitators. Trying to get the assignment marked took more time than the actual content of the course.

One of the absolute worst final exams I've ever seen. Vague questions coupled with synonymous answers form a frustrating experience that ruins an otherwise decent entry in security topics.

More that a course is a collection of sometimes outdated documents.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.

Most of the reading material is from other source some reading material not available. Wel, it is my first course in Coursera. I am not sure if it is the same from other course though.

for this type of training, it is expected to have lectures and the videos are so short and most of the information is reading material.
might as well just post a series of links:(

Videos seemed disjointed. Assignments were marked inconsistently. Did not find the subject interesting but the course did give useful insights into the industry.

A lot of reading material is not very helpful in training a student in the domain.A more detailed video
session would have been more helpful.

Videos are very brief - slide presentations of course outline. One has to depend entirely on reading materials to understand the course.
by Juraj P•
Poorly made very short videos that do not explain the subject matter, some of the content is outdated.
by Sona T•
There is a lot of self reading material. I think it would be better to add some video lessons

Boring course... useless videos... only the referential resources and exercises are good
by Ivan d A V J•
Poor video lessons. The course is sustained by the reading material alone.
by James C•
really... strange. Kind of childish.
by Tobias N•
too much external references

No useful info for me

DO NOT RECOMMEND: (1) Instructor never responded to emails or to postings in discussion forum re: issues with course; (2) Many of the links are broken to resources required to read; (3) Many of the resources required to read are outdated; (4) Very boring - very little video presentation of material; course is mainly reading 3-4 hours/week of outdated or unavailable (due to broken links) of material and taking quizzes; (5) peer-reviewed assignment is ridiculous; many students do not understand the grading rubric and the grading is very subjective and inconsistent.

This course is terrible. Week 1 is helpful but after that is is just links to other websites with no guidance on what to read. Some of those links go to redundant sources (such as NIST guidelines that have been superceded), the wrong place (another link sends you to the same NIST link), to flyers for companies, or even to other courses (the Open University in particular), or to random poorly assembled pages. None of the materials are created by the supposed author of the course. I will be escalating this to the University as it is embarassing.

Very disappointed with the course. You'd expect a course to have for video support to teach but this course, consisting of Seven Weeks, has nothing more than Two videos no more than 2 minutes long. They just give us a bunch of reading material every week, around 200 pages each and ask us to go through on our own. It's alright the first week, maybe the second, but every week?? Half the links are either Broken or outdated.
by Radu P•
The are only a few minutes of videos per week and some reading. Frankly, I feel like this is taking the piss! Nothing to do with real courses on coursera where teachers explain material. Unfortunately I cannot give it a zero stars!
by Leonardo L F•
I expected much more. The course material is really weak, did not improve my knowledge about Cyber Security. I am very disappointed, also cos I payed 30 dollars to a certificate. I do not recommend this course
by Claudio P•
Too easy content sometimes not well explained, videos too short with poor content, some material like NIST docs too "heavy" related to the course level and very useless peer review,
