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.

Audio quality is quite bad, there are mistakes in the questions and the closed captioning isn't correct because of the bad audio quality.. did nobody read through this before publishing?

Content is interesting and yes, you learn but the audio quality is appalling and in some cases exteremly difficult to understand both because of strong accents and sound quality.

Rich and interesting content, but the overall presentation (voice calls over slide presentations) would have to be reviewed. As well as the grammar in the intended presentations.

course was concept wise good but teaching schema was very poor learners are not eager to learn and audio quality was poor . so i think you will need to improve teaching schema.

Good overview of information, some videos were hard to understand due to lecturer studdering and text transcript being wrong on some words. Overall solid introductory course.

In some video audio quality is not good.

Most of the slides were from 2018 so it's around 2 years old material.

Some reference links and websites provided are no longer valid.

Excellent theoretical knowledge provided can be rated as 5 star, but there is a issue in claiming the badge earned...Really makes a negative impact on this with this reason.

A good course if you are an absolute beginner in this field. However, many topics and concepts are repeated again and again in the videos. Audio quality is not so good.

Material was well-covered, however the audio was difficult to discern, video slide presentations were at times pixelated and blurry with mis-spellings in the material.

A good introduction into the subject-matter. It is, however, useful if you already have some background. Also, the audio and a lot of the video quality is just bad....

The course is instructionally great, gives a lot of insight on cybersecurity and whatnot, but has a very low audio quality that makes listening to lectures very hard.

The voice is not audible. The presentation of most of the speakers are not up to my mark. The content is good. I have to read the transcript to complete this course.

the videos were kind of improvised from what I saw. With a wholly scripted lecture, animations and audio quality like google's this course would receive five stars

Quite informative course but the instructor is very bad. Feels like he is just reading from a manual. Not understandable in many places and it gets quite boring.

This will give you a lot of information about basic knowledge of cybersecurity but you need to dig into some technical terms if you don't have IT background.

The course materials presented was great. However, the audio was poor at times and the text didn't have the correct content when the audio was inaudible.

Good quality content but audio quality during most of the course is not good. Some places the audio and video didn't match even CC and text did not help.

The materials are excellent and the organization is pretty good but some of the speakers really need to review the material before they start presenting.

Somewhat disappointed. The poor audio quality and dated materials make for a less than enjoyable learning experience. The course should be updated ASAP.

Quality of videos is average, audio is very bad in several videos and the english pronunciation can be inaudible at times from some of the presenters.

No practical implementation of any of the tools has been given. Theoretically this is the best course with all the information required for beginners.

Course content is too good, but I find hard to understand because lecture's audio quality are too bad as I had to refer most of time on transcripts.

I love the course and the teacher teaching methods. But there's a little bit hardness for me to understand the teacher voice because it's not clear
