The reading link to Week 03's Framework and their purpose is Broken. Please Fix it. Everything else seemed perfect. I would recommend this course for people who think of starting their careers in CyS.

Material was out of date, audio quality was bad, and some instructors could barely speak English. I've taken much higher quality classes on Udemy.

Informative, but many of the presenters have poor audio quality and heavy accents which make for a difficult time understanding the information.

I was expecting to learn some practical explanation on cybersecurity but couldn't find any which made the whole process of theory quite boring:)

Good introduction to cybersecurity. However, there were many errors in the corresponding text and several lectures are very hard to understand.

Very informative, but the audio quality on some of the videos is poor. Also I think the reading materials provided should relate to the tests.

Presenting the content needs to be improved in an interactive way. Sounds are not good to hear. Content needs to be more clear to understand

It was very difficult. The lecture is difficult to understand. I thought it would be better to explain it in a little more bullet points.

Many of the instructors were difficult to understand, and many of the quiz questions and answers didn't match what the instructors taught.

First of all, thank you IBM for this great course. However, the video quality, sound quality, tutorial and slide can be further improved.

The content is good, but the audio quality is too poor, sometimes is difficult to understand especially if you are not a native speaker.

Hard to understand some instructors due to mic quality.

Extra unnecessary details that appear to act as bulk and just prolong the course.

Information is decent but the audio is absolutely horrible. Cannot believe that IBM allows such thing to be published under their brand.

Audio quality isn't great and sometimes new concepts are introduced with little explanation. However, I did learn quite a bit.

Sound quality really bad. Slides also in bad quality. Who uses Comic Sans? However, topics are clearly described and taught.

The quality of the videos and audios is not good, I need to re-listen more than once and read the transcript to understand!

The transcription of the audio was problematic. The courses need proofreading and grammar editing for clearer learning.

Wish the audio was better, subtitles kind of helped but would have enjoyed this more if the audio was of better quality

must include the hands on tools and applications, many questions are predecessor asked than the actual study of it.

I think the topics are reviewed in a rush, you need to look for external information to understand some of the topics.

We should be able to see the questions we got wrong and/or there should be an explanation of why we got them wrong
