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.

This course is a good start for beginners. But I wont say, it was the best as personally I felt there is alot more to cover for beginners. This was more like a introductory course and very theoretical and no hands on practices were given. Audio quality must improve too. But It was good learning.

Great information, the subtitles are a little off and the audio is somewhat hard to hear. I had to re-watch some of the videos in order to fully understand what was being said.

But other than that, it was really good information. A good foundation into CyberSecurity. I cannot wait to learn more!

THE COMPLETE COURSE WAS VERY BENEFICIAL AND HELPFUL FOR PROVIDING INFORMATION ABOUT CYBER SECURITY , BUT THERE SHOULD BE SOME PRACTICAL LEARNING AND TO GIVE PRACTICAL DEMONSTRATION ALSO . IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE .

BUT I DIDN'T RECEIVED MY IBM BADGE YET . THAT IS DISSAPOINTING .

It was alright. I learned a fair amount, but being lectured to by unengaging instructors reading off a powerpoint, some of whom don't speak english very well, can make getting through this class feel more like a chore. Regardless, it still contained good information.

Giving 3 stars because audio quality is poor. Some of the questions in the quiz are not even mentioned in the videos, some of the choices/questions have spelling errors.

Regardless, it provides an very decent introduction to Cybersecurity Tools and Cyber Attacks

The course has a poor quality of audio and slides. Most of the videos are pre-recorded from internal training and they ofter refer to topics not covered in the course. The topics were interesting though but often too basic or not well connected together.

T​his course is full of audio issues. One woman I could not even focus on what she was saying because someone in a nearby office to hers was banging on a door so loudly. It made me feel as if this course was just kind of thrown together and rushed.

The course modules were great but some videos audios were not audible enough and that was below my expectation. I’m glad I completed the course. It was really challenging combining work,business,family and other commitments with doing this course.

some of the speakers were barely intelligible and some of the scripts were rambling and barely relevant.

other elements were fine with decent slides to accompany.

would suggest more detail on slides to compensate for the poorer presenters.

The basics of the course are good and useful for entering the world of cybersecurity. However, the automatically translated transcripts, which are very often incorrect and therefore more difficult to understand, are to be criticised.

the material was good for an introduction but i was struggling with the audio and some of the transcripts were totally wrong so i just began ignoring them. Maybe if you could clean up the audio i would give it the full 5 stars.

The lessons in this course are very interesting and well informed to the viewer. The only problem is the audio quality of the video. It just like you are listening in a two-way radio, please make it more clearly. Thank you.

Overall I think that this is an okay course. The 3-5 minute lectures were tedious. I understand that teaching an online course is difficult but I just would like to see more engaging lectures for all learning styles.

A huge barrier to learning from this course is simply the mic quality. I don't understand how that is limiting factor for this. Very unfortunate because the content seems good but it is such a pain to try and parse.

Great course, taught a lot of background information and basics of what cyber security is and what a job in Cyber security looks like. Would have liked more hand on projects to test methods that were explained.

I'm not gonna lie, with this course I was able to learn the basic concepts and theory of Cybersecurity, but some of the videos were very low sound quality. Coming from IBM, I was expecting a little more effort.

A good introduction to CS, but the audio quality could be much better - "inaudible" moments in almost every part of the training materials. In my opinion, it is not an honor for an organization like IBM.

It was a good introduction. However, it could have been made more interesting by giving sample cases or providing simulations of the various concepts introduced.The practical aspect was somewhat missing.

I am happy to complete this course which is helpful in my career. in this course, I can learn about the cybersecurity key concepts each term basically and clean my doubt regarding some misunderstanding.

Really good information in this course, but the presentation leaves something to be desired: it is often difficulty to understand what people are saying in the videos. Audio quality is not the best.

The Instructor's voice is not clear and sometimes not even audible and the content of the course is not that detailed and practical understanding of the topic has not be given that much attention.

A lot of the presentations had poor audio quality and use of technical language/ abbreviations in a Beginner course. It is good to get a basic idea but some of the presentations were frustrating.

Everything was great only in some videos the audio quality needs to be improved ......the audio input is too bad that even with earphone it's not audible properly...and rest everything is good.

Some of the links were out of date, videos often consisted of broken English, and sometimes hard to read screen. However still a very good worthwhile course if you are willing to work hard.
