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.\n\nThis course has motivated me to learn more about Information Security.\n\nExcellent content !\n\nRegards

Brilliant overview and indepth presentation of topics and subject matter. I have been truly impressed and really enjoyed every minutes spent studying this course. Thank you.

I'm going to try to continue to the end but the first three weeks is probably 15 minutes of videos with the most annoying music available playing for way too much of the content. I also didn't need to watch 10 seconds of an animated caveman grunting and smashing things on the screen. I would probably enjoy that part more if I felt that the information that is supposed to be learned over three weeks was more information than 5 pages in a book.

The value of this course is entirely connected to the amount of independent reading the student completes. The videos are of little value, much of the information is old, several of the links are broken, instructions to students are unclear, and, the instructors do not interact with students or respond to their questions. Very disappointing.

Too short lectures;
The study material is not properly defined, only entire books to read as reference;
The tasks/tests are all literal parts of the books to complete, no understanding of the subject is motivated, but memorizing and tiring reading of books without proper directions.
Very very broad with no real depth. Basically a very light summary of what cybersecurity is. You could watch all of the videos in 30 min probably. The real course comes from the reading and peer discussions.

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.

The actual structure of the course and "10 domains" were not presented in a comprehensive way.
The course material was poor - video parts were very short and little more than reading a few high level bullets. Reading material was generally much out of date. The material were mainly links to govermental work (think: very dense reports of 100+ pages in administrative language) which was not up to date; from 2004, 2007, 2010, 2014 etc or even depricated.
The quizes were (too) easy, you could probably pass them without reading the material.

Worst course on Coursera I've ever taken. The videos are short 1-3 minute videos with very little substance or depth. The course consists mostly of long, boring readings (some of which are broken links). There is also no activity by the course instructors in the discussion forums. Multiple problems with the course have been pointed out in the discussion forums, but they have not been addressed at all. I would advise anyone interested in cybersecurity to take another course. This course was a complete waste of time for me.

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.

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.
by Roberto S•
Video content barely summarizes the outline of each module. The questions in the quiz are not "though provoking". Peer discussion are rather superficial and do not cover half the content of the course.
Readings are OK, show good sources, but there is no real discussion about them in the videos or in the quizzes.
by Sanket V•
waste of money i guess beacuse you are just getting a certificate but you wont get any knowledge after completing this. please guys dont do this there are all other great courses , invest in them. dont spend your money here.
by Lynn D P•
I did not find the lectures at all informative and the readings were not targeted enough to understand what items required focus and what information was more background. I did not find the course especially helpful.
by Ediemerson M A•
The videos are too short, without enough information about the topics. You have to read a lot, Actually, this course doesn't look like as others Coursera's courses and I don't recommend it.
by Eric G•
This course is pretty bad. Requests buying certification before every module. Material is sometimes 7+ years old. Broken links to materials. Glad I didn't pay for this.
by Sean W•
The content of the videos are just some engineer citing with some brief headline of security, it's lacking of depth and explanation, totally wasting my time !!
by Mihir M•
Need help to opt out of this course, it just gives links to other materials and some of them are even outdated and websites says documents withdrawn.
by Sibylle D•
Not very helpful, very stessfull music and only read definitions, do discussion or explanations to go deeper into the topic.
by Shen Y S L•
The design of this course seems rather lazy. There should have been more meaningful contents and discussions in the videos.
Too elementary. I would recommend this course for non-technical managers or security/coding beginners under the age of 13.
by David F•
Minimal video efforts, not enough content, and long readings. Definetly not a good course to get a verified certificate
by Gilles L•
A new generation of MOOC with REL available for free on the web as teaching ressources!
Already got that elsewhere...
by Josh H•
Short lectures, long intro, ridiculous music. Very quickly decided to learn this elsewhere.
by Philip v d H•
hardly any lectures, only reading a bunch of off site links (some of which are broken)
