About the Course

Welcome! You may have heard about the Internet of Things (IoT). But you may also have wondered about what it is. Or for that matter, what does it mean to you or an organization. This course is for you if you are curious about the most recent trends and activities in the internet capabilities and concerns about programmed devices. There are complexities and areas of necessary awareness when the industrial sector becomes connected to your home. Security policies and practices have not yet caught up to the internet capabilities of some of our most common products. The “connected home”, “consumer wearables”, or even an employee’s HVAC system may cause an unanticipated threat to your business environment. You will explore current security and privacy related concerns in each of these areas. Every module will include readings, videos, case studies, and a quiz to help make sure you understand the material and concepts we talk about. This course offers a place to learn, reflect, and plan for a smart community approach to IoT. Portions of this course may seem extremely technical in nature. That is because the “things” in IoT represents engineering. Try to grasp the concept in that case....

It was really a beneficial course to compete this technical world..... And the syllabus was really good and it accumulate all major topics... Overall it is a best course to pursue on post graduate.

I love this course. I have read a lot of information on IOT and I think the future with IOT devices will be great but not without security risks and challenges that have to be dealt with

The course is OK for beginners. There are lots of reading materials, but very less video content. I have to say, most of the reading materials are not up to the mark. Some reading materials are linked to blogs, which either ask for sign-up or not available anymore. Most importantly, the quiz questions do not make any sense at all. They are definitely not made to check how much you understood. They are of really low quality. I absolutely do not recommend this course to anyone.

The material was mostly dated. Some links did not work. The timing suggested for some of the articles to be able to be completed in was definitely way over for some -- there was one in Week 3 that claimed to be only 30 minutes worth of reading but took me over 2 hours. Some of the articles also got very bogged down in technical jargon, making them more difficult to fully comprehend.

I'm disappointed and I wouldn't recommend it. Lot of IoT, little Cybersecurity, the title of this course is misleading.

Some interesting reading, some really old (2011-12) for a technology evolving so quickly.

It does not actually talk about cybersecurity on a considerable level. Involves a lot of reading with pretty less video or graphical content. Assignments are too easy.

The course was more of self study rather than teaching. could be more systematic and interactive rather than leaving everything on students to read.

outdated articles, institutional videos do not add as much knowledge and there were few videos. There was no mandatory delivery of content.

This is a great course if you have literally no idea what the 'Internet of Things' is, and if you find using a smartphone challenging.

Cyber security is hardly covered in course. IoT as well is supporting product marketing. Coursera s losing it's quality..

This course was more self reading articles and PDFs, instead of online teaching/virtual learning.

the course is a bit old and that makes the concept relevant but the examples a bit outdated
