About the Course

The FinTech revolution is rapidly transforming the financial industry. The use of digital technologies is the norm, and together with regulatory and market changes it is creating a revolution. After completion of the module, you'll be able to: describe the changes that influence the financial sector, understand the complexity of the payment infrastructure, identify and explain the key payment instruments and how they function, understand the types of money that exits, and recognize changes in the regulatory frameworks and how they inhibit or promote innovation. To begin, I recommend taking a few minutes to explore the course site. A good place to start is the navigation bar on the left. Click Course Content to see what material we’ll cover each week, as well preview the assignments you’ll need to complete to pass the course. Click Discussions to see forums where you can discuss the course material with fellow students taking the class. Be sure to introduce yourself to everyone in the Meet and Greet forum! This course should take about four weeks to complete. You can check out the recommended course schedule below to see a quick overview of the lessons and assignments you’ll complete each week. By the time you finish this course, you’ll have mastered mastered the transformational forces of digitalization and the new competitive dynamics it gives rise to, learned from leading financial companies and seen inspirational examples from the digital masters. Good luck as you get started. I look forward to seeing you in class!...

The assessments were excellent. Initially, I did have hesitation in getting started, but got hooked to the assessments. Thank you to Kavya and Steve, our Program Managers who encouraged us everyday.

Los recursos estaban muy desactualizados y eran páginas de wikipedia o ese estilo de fácil acceso. Los exámenes no estaban bien redactados y las preguntas daban espacio de interpretación que no sería lo más adecuado para selección múltiple.

Lot of missing content. The video on Apple Pay is missing on Youtube. The reading content on the OpenBanking's impact on Customer Bank and Society is missing. It leads to a page not found error. Content is stale from 2018. Nothing new.

Material relativamente antigo para um tema em constante mudança. Alguns vídeos do curso simplesmente terminam sem uma conclusão, alguns materiais de leitura são de sites que exigem assinatura para que possam ser consumidos.

some contents are behind the paywall or the link is no longer available. some of the prediction on P2P are less accurate in retrospect. should update the course and material given fintech evolved so much in last few years.

The presenter is very difficult to understand and the quizzes are absolutely rubbish: they are full of typos and poor grammar, and the questions and answers themselves are not well thought out at all.

Very high level information. Mostly refers to Wikipedia articles or magazine articles, that too outdated articles published 3-4 years back. Very little original course content.

A large number of links don't work or are behind paywalls. Others are 5 year old articles, there is so much information out there this is disappointing

Too much of this course consists of Wikipedia links, feels lazy, just throwing the student without guidance in the totality of information.

Week 4 final assignment was rubbish. It doesn't allow people to pass though the answers were correct.

There were many problems with this course, including multiple missing links, incomplete and incorrect information on the subject matter, and multiple incorrect practice quiz and final quiz answers and/or technical glitches. Read the discussion forum over the past three years, and you will discover that many students agree with me. I passed the course, but my grade was lower than it should have been because of those technical issues. I'm dismayed that Coursera would allow this course to be included on its website.

Soy usuaria de Coursera desde hace muchos años, y en estos días con ocasión de la pandemia decidí actualizarme en Transformación Digital y mi frustración ha sido absoluta. Artículos recomendados de 2014 cuando estamos en 2020, links de Wikipedia como referencia, cifras de 2016, en fin un curso totalmente desactualizado y que pierde vigencia porque en temas digitales la evolución ha sido significativa en los últimos años. De los peores materiales que he visto.

Unbelievably poor. As others point out, there is no decent content, you often cannot understand what the guy is trying to say, there are loads of spelling mistakes, the module passes you onto outdated websites, the questions are ridiculous and often do not match either the content or the answers. Do not waste your time and money. This 'course' should be deleted.

The course content was quite old and did not contain any examples from India and China where the variety of new payment methods are being used on large scale. All the English was not at all up to the standard and lots of spelling and grammatical errors. And some of the questions were quite ambiguous.

This is a horrible course, some copy pasted links about some random topics, barely informative for someone who already is active in financial tech or banking, quizzes have arguable answers, presenter is horrible with his manners and speech, horrible, below every par good modern education should meet
