The course covers a lot of content and there is a lot of supplementary information that is part of the reading material and must be covered to get a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter.

Excellent Experience. Couldn't expect anything better. Both the instructors were cheerful throughout the duration of the course and made me build my colony on MARS. Thanks from Elon Musk as well.

compared with the "Going Cloud Native" course, this one was somehow optimizable. Content is really tricky (and important) but I had a hard time to understand it. I would like to see more hands on labs/exercises and maybe a little better explanation. I felt sometimes if someone was just reading from the teleprompter.

Good overview. Some difficult concepts covered. Some of the explanations could have been a little more in depth. In some videos the AWS Service names came too thick and fast to make any sense of but I appreciate that some of the services are vast fields in their own right. Thank you for putting this together.

Perhaps because the first course of specialization was so well produced, it did not meet expectations. There is practically no Lab, the examples given and the attempt to make humor do not help. And many of the questions in the quiz are not spoken at any time.

The course material does not adequately prepare you to answer the quiz and exam questions. There were many questions that weren't covered in the videos and in the reading assignments. ALso, not as many animations as the technical essentials course.

A lot of information!!

Way too many topics thrown at you (like in marketing videos) and not enough hands-on examples to them.

This supposed to be a "Security with marketing within reason"-course not "Marketing Security stuff in AWS"-course....

Many sections were not cecovred within the videos, some quizzes questions where asked weeks before were explained..

Overall, I had to read much in order to be able to pass, so, thanks :)

Couse is ok. I think that there was a lot of work behind the scenes. However, due to a large capacity of AWS services, its difficult to learn all information about each one

General concepts related to aws security are introduced in this course, however, the downside is there weren't too many demos or examples for real world cases.

Content was excellent. The instructors were not good because there English was horrible. The examples with bees was very distracting from the content.

The course needs to include more demo videos in their syllabus. Too much of theory, less of practical makes it tough to understand concepts.

Cours intéressant, mais avec des lectures très courtes, renvoyant fréquemment à des approfondissements via des liens URL

The course is dry. The lack of tasks and even quizzes was very frustrating.
