This course is really very helpful for students interested in Technologies or even in other fields, as Blockchain has the potential to bring a new revolution in the world, "The Second Era of Internet"

This course wonderfully describes the technology and its workings. Helped me understand the intricacies of this disruption and comprehend some of the challenges that I did not even consider before.

A good introduction with constant updates and industry voices. INSEAD is the academic partner, main focus of the presentes is to promote their book and show the blockchain as the one thing the world shouldn't be without. Heavy on - good - additional reading should make up for light use of visualization.

Good introduction, however a lot of overlap with the Introduction to blockchain for financial services module, feels like watching same videos. Perhaps if Coursera could provide recognition for either of the courses done, so as to not duplicate efforts

Good introduction and clear explanations. Overall it needs further interaction and potentially actual collaboration rather than just looking at videos and reading corresponding literature

I feel the course is too high level. I would have expected more in-depth explanation of Blockchain

The structure, and the content were organized very well and easy to follow, however the content itself has to be updated as many references are outdated to 2014-2018 whereas the resources, technology and governace have changed dramatically since then. Most articles are old and irrelevant. Kind of like a history class more than an updated course on BC technology. The istuation of energy consumption is taken from 2015 , while the hashing rate has changed and many new chains were added.

already had some knowledge in this area, for a begginner stand point the content is a bit advanced.. and less videos and more reading material is not what most of students prefer...
