Very good introduction BUT, sometimes the sound is badly taped, the material is not equal in between the different teachers and the tone of certain teachers is boring.

Very informative, clear cut and explained in a digestible way but i will say some of the audio quality in the classes of, "Week 3" and Week 4" could have been better.

It is a good introduction and the speakers are very knowledgable but I think that the format of the presentations is not very engaging and the audio is always awful.

I wish here was more on OS. I am not sure how much of OS knowledge we would need in the field. I will take an OS course to get a good handle of the subject matter.

There was only one problem with the entire course, the audio had very poor quality.

On the other hand the course was very well built, lots of good content.

Thank you

A good introduction, but it didn't seem like all the information was useful, and I didn't learn as much as I thought I would. However, it is a good enough course.

Very compact course material , so a beginer can get a glimpse of the current cyber attacks and key concepts of avoiding and analyzing the attacks are understood.

Good overview class; excellent for beginners. Video quality a little choppy at times. Second week's workload seemed unbalanced to the other week's requirements.

The course transcript was difficult to understand due to accents. Otherwise, course is excellent at teaching the basics. I'm looking forward to more learning.

It was a great journey indeed, however, I recommend that the team of instructors work on their video editing before publishing it on the site for public Access.

Enjoyed the course as an introduction to cybersecurity, but had to read the transcripts quite often to fully understand the material. Would recommend it.
