Simply superb. I haven't found this much detailed account of Blockchain Platforms or Blockchain anywhere else on Coursera. Not even in the courses from some of the leading universities of the world.
With effective and efficiently covered important platforms. I got sufficient knowledge to explore platforms in deep. Big thanks to Buffalo University and Coursera for this specialization course.

This course was "ok" in my opinion. Its really a shame that Coursera does not have quality checks running to ensure course material provided in their courses are up to date. Throughout the entire specialization, many links where non-functional since resources where not available anymore. Nonetheless, the course provides a solid foundation for learning more about blockchain technology, in my view.

Felt a bit bored in this course. A demo application making in Hyperledger and IPFS could be more interesting, also connecting IPFS to Ethereum and Hyperledger could have been amazing.

No discrete information about the platforms are given in the course. The course can be developed further with a detailed basic hands on tutorial for new platforms.

In some points, the course content is too theoretical. Instruction for using the program should be more clearer and specific.

Not as useful as the other courses in the specialization which were first rate
Need some long sessions to know more,these are so short and fast

Information in this course is seriously dated.

The Module, in general, is helpful. It is a shame that the final test is exclusively based on IPFS with commands that cannot be run exactly as the documentation is stating (for instance, the web ui is not working in the VM, the server is starting it is accessible, but APIs cannot be reached). I was not able to perform some of the actions, so I guessed.

Never liked the approach where professor forces you to learn one specific app. And tests are poorly designed. Assembling questions for specific version of application is poor choice. Students are left with choice to pick newer version for passing tests and tests are not aligned with new versions.

The associated english dialog is often incorrect and confusing, the end project has not been kept up to date with the ipfs UI. for example there is no Connection Tab in the IPFS.

Filled with technical problems, poor instructions, half-baked explanations, poor writing and typographical errors. The videos are far too short and superficial. I managed to pass without being able to do the programming aspect -- nothing in the programming exercise platform works. I regret taking this course. I wanted to complete the whole specialization, but could not complete the DAPP course programming , again because nothing on the course programming platform works properly.

Very bad course. Jumps between high level boring specs to demos with too many details, the high level and demos just don't connect. also the "Module Objective" and "Summary" slides takes too much time from a few minutes sections, making them feel strange and old fashioned.

Very basic. I will have to learn lots more before being able to deploy my own blockchain application

Explaination was not so good.
