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.

The course itself and what it teaches is really good however it is let down by its production and has some really annoying sound issues. You have to really consentrate to understand some teachers.

Good intro to cybersecurity concepts, but it's sometimes hard to follow due to lots of grammatical and usage errors...this course could benefit from an overhaul to use proper syntax.

quality of slides and presenters really bad. They don't give any effort for lessons. You cannot see who is talking. You just see 2 page slides (mostly blank) for 12 mins video.

So much theorical and starts explaining stuff with no a base. I wish it was presented some practical example about either how to hack or how to pentest for example.

Poor Quality of slides and audio, for me as a non-native speaker it is hard to understand the speakers. Should be presented more structured and fluently

Could not understand the instructors. For most, English is not their first language. Many words and key terms were misspelled and unintelligible.

T​eachers are not very good at presenting.

I didn't find it very much interactive. I appreciate speakers presentation but looks like they were too tired and forced to have this recorded. :(
