The rapid pace of fintech technology makes this course slightly outdated (even though it seems to be only a year or two old!), but the overwhelming majority of the information is still relevant and topical. The exposure to fintech and existing regulatory interactions is very detailed and well explained, and the exams and quizzes are quite challenging!

I thought the course was excellent, I had a little difficulty with the language due to more technical issues, but nothing that hindered my learning.

Course offers a top-level look into FinTech, and it is a fairly new course, which is a VERY big plus. Although the video lectures can be a bit dry and require a bit of note taking given the amount and detail covered, the course does what it intends to do. It would be nice if the questions were harder, and actually made you think to ensure you understood the topics taught. Also, it would be helpful for future course students if an additional week was added (Week #6) for international FinTech trends, including optional reading material, that don't discuss law and policy, especially given that FinTech is used quite a lot in other countries.

Overall the course gives all the fundamentals to understand the global FinTech situation and developments up to 2018; because of this, the course would seem a little outdated because the rapid development of the industry, but it still holds it's own quite firmly.
Additionally, it's important to note that the course focuses primarily on the US legal framework and regulation, but it does provide a great point of comparison with your own country's legal framework, as well as the international legal standings.

This is an excellent course on RegTech, and Lee Reiners does a good job in explaining it. It covered the regulation issues with FinTech in the US and how state and federal agencies are trying to keep up with how fast the FinTech companies are creating new areas of business. It helps to have a basic understanding of what FinTech, Blockchain and crypto currencies are before taking the course. I wish the course lasted longer or had a part II, and could be updated at periodically.

This course was highly informative, exploring real world examples and current events to help the course content resonate with the student. As a well tenured professional in the field of FinTech. I was pleased with the valuable information that I learned and the way it was presented. The instructor does an excellent job relating the themes presented here in great details and helping to bring them you an every day format that makes it very consumable and elearning friendly!

Really outstanding course! Coming from a background in blockchain/cryptocurrency and not one of traditional finance, this course really helped tie together a lot of the concepts I have been wanting to learn but could not find a trustworthy repository of information. This course was extremely helpful and by far the most challenging (even with my background in blockchain) that I have taken on Coursera thus far. Really great work!

For a novice inexperienced in the field of Fintech, I was pleased with the way the course was delivered as well as the resources and quizz questions.
They really helped me to understand what Fintech is and doing the quizz questions made me grasp all the concepts in a more concise manner.
I enjoyed this course and recommend it to anyone who wished to understand what Fintech is.

This course comprises of key components of emerging industry "FinTech" in a depth manner and the related regulations and challenges in a critical manner.
Professor is good at presentation with suitable real time cases to substantiate the topic of discussion.
Now, i gained an enormous knowledge around this new topic and able to debate. Looking forward to hear more courses from Duke.

The course was really comprehensive and it contained an overall idea about US based FinTech related Law and Policy background. As an employee in a Financial Technology related department of a leading financial institution in my country, I find this course valuable very much. Thank you, Mr. Lee Reiners and Duke University! Thank you Coursera! Thank you for letting us study it!
By Lance J•
Loved it. You don't often think you'll come away from a MOOC feeling smarter/more informed, but there were at least two chapters that changed my perspective, opinion and practices in FinTech. In addition to being a better professional, I have a couple brand new FinTech accounts to show for my experience! Thanks Duke, Lei Reiners and Coursera... I'll be back for more.

The course does a nice job of providing a high-level overview of the different products and services offered in the FinTech space, the relevant regulatory considerations, and the various risks present in the space. I enjoyed it and would recommend for others looking to gain an understanding of FinTech products, services, risks, and regulatory considerations.

very well put together and Interesting course. Presented excellently with challenging questions at the end of each section. I feel it would great if the course was updated ( and when stated laws/regulations have changed a time stamp is presented). This would ensure the users/Students are aware of that specific legislation have changed.
By Daniel K•
Great course! The lectures were very understandable and thorough. I would, however, suggest something akin to a "Basics of Finance" at the beginning that covers basic transactions (e.g., securities, commodities) and the financial advising pieces. I think this would help bring the lecture to the next level.
By Felix L•
This course is highly recommended and good refresher for the laws and regulations (such as NY's Bitcoin License) that governs FinTech, Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies. Also, good discussions on regulators (FinCEN, OCC, SEC, FINRA, CFTC, IRS) stand on FinTech, Blockchain, ICO and Cryptocurrencies.
By Olivia T•
Really well written and provided a great overview/scope on FinTech Law and Policy. I do wish that it covered a little more ground on International Laws, but understandably, this is geared towards US FinTech Law and Policy. Great starter and review course on FinTech Law and Policy.
By Bisma S•
Excellent course for those who want to learn about all things fintech and policy! Lee Reiners tactfully explains even the most technical of details in a way that is easy to follow for someone with little to no knowledge of the subject! Definitely recommend taking this course.
By Sriram V•
Comprehensive coverage of various fin-tech products and the legal aspects of the same. Although, mostly focused towards US regulations, the course touches upon the broad spectrum within the geography. Would recommend it for any one wanting to work in Fin-tech space.
By Akshara R•
The Course teaches the regulations surrounding FinTech in a simple, yet a critical manner. It lays down the relation and difference between Fintech and traditional methods in a simplistic format which makes it easy to compare them both. Highly recommended!

This course was very good in several aspects. I was able to have a very broad vision and build good knowledge on this topic. Teacher Lee is very clear in his explanations and the content is certainly very didactic. Congratulations to all involved.
By Timothy H•
The course is informative and quite easy to follow. I recommend taking it. However, I feel that may need needs some updates. Some words in the subtitles don't reflect what the speaker says presenting a different, misleading context.
By Anibal M•
Excellent course that gives you a broad look at the laws and policies about fintech. The course gives the opportunity to explore more about this new world, either for general culture or with a view to participating in it.
By Niclas F S•
Very good introductory course. The final exam is a bit demanding but is really useful to digest all the information provided by the course. Overall, the course gives a great overview over the current US FinTech ecosystem.
