Great course, very helpful. The content is well organised and you need to have all the require knowledge, otherwise you won't get it.
Excellent course. I like it, and it is very straightforward and easy to understand. I hope to see more courses from this professor.

Great course but need someone moderating the forum.

Some material are not polished, especially week 6.

Audio quality is very poor, this makes it very difficult to understand, sometimes impossible to understand the professor which is not a native eanglish speaker. His mispronunciation and strugle with words combined with low audio volume makes it almost imposible to understand at times.

This course is an interesting overview of hardware security topics with main emphasis from discrete logic point of view. I've found some topics or details very "atomic" and hard to apply in today's tech business, it may better fit on Academic/research areas.

The material is very good, however Coursera should make a little effort in keeping it tidy (i.e. one of the Weeks had videos not in the correct order and one of the video was cut at the end).
The concepts are interesting and generally well presented.

The audio can be difficult to understand. Partially because of the Professor's accent and partially because the recording is poor. If you can get past that, it's a good course and the professor knows his stuff.

the course is full of too many academic information ,sometimes repeated the way the course presented i think there is a better and thank you it was helpful afterall

A lot of it wasn't comprehensible. Also, I may have not been well prepared for it. I should have tried to learn of the background required for this course.

A lecturer is a bit boring, too much not needed math. Everything else is ok.

The transcripts should be refined more in order to avoid errors.

The lecture slides are not available!

Very complex, but interresting

I'm very disappointed by this course...I got lured in by the good reviews but I don't share them and I'll explain why.
Some might argue that Coursera is probably not a good medium to learn such technical skills. However Cryptography 1 (for example) is very technical and is still an amazing course, so I think there is a lot of room for improvement for Hardware Security.
At the end of the course I felt like the course was a pile of name-dropping of a lot of concepts with very vague and high-level explanations, but no more than that.
There are some exceptions, a few parts are well covered but overall I feel that the agenda is too big so for each concept only the surface is scratched.
There are a few technical issues too that make the experience quite bad. The first 3 weeks are recorded at a very low volume (fortunately fixed in the last 3 weeks). The 6th week is a mess: the videos aren't in the proper order and one of them stops abruptly. And I don't mean to offend anyone, but as a non-native speaker (I come from Europe) it's very hard to understand the teacher's accent...

This course is strangely organized and require knowledges that we usually don't see in a classic computer science cursus. Moreover, the teacher accent is really hard to understand for non english native and makes the whole a bit painful to be followed.

Very low quality of video recorded. Many mistakes and should be recorded again. material out of order. simple read of presentation and no material of course available to download. Instructor demonstrate knowledge but with no teaching skills.
foreign accent is totally ok, but very poor presentation skills by lecturer. material should be refreshed some already outdated
By Valerio M•
Not many practical examples.
The teacher has a poor diction and even the subtitles are often wrong, so it's hard to understand.
By Mahmoud H•
presenter was not good enough, with his mono tone presentations, and also poor quality in the presentation over all
By Elias R•
The course has no active instructors and was not updated for at least three years.
By Mikael C•
Simple or hard concepts are explain in the same amount of time.
By Łukasz D•
Only two stars because of poor quality of videos.
