Very good class, not difficult, doesn't take long and doesn't require any background knowledge. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about how the Internet and their computers work.
Fantastic introductory course to the fundamentals in TCP/IP. Great course for those new to computer networks and would like to gain a high-level to intermediate overview of how the Internet works.

I did achieve a necessary knowledge of TCP/IP and with that knowledge some tools and resources for operating in the cyber world more safely and managing my home network. The course could hep to launch someone who intends to go deeper. Sometimes more input from the tutor was required in a some areas. The discussion forum could have been utilized in a better way to clarify questions. The uses of Wireshark needed more explanation. That explanation segment should have followed the experiment.

The lecturer seems like a kind, considerate person, however the content was a bit boring. For some parts he covered things that are just too obvious - like procedures that you could look up in Google. Or sometimes he would just repetitively go through unnecessary parts. On the other hand, he skipped basic concepts.. and his presentations were mostly just reading slides. More metaphors would have helped. But anyways I've tasted a bit of TCP/IP topics. That was cool. Thanks for your work!

This course is somewhat useful. As an introduction, it covers how the internet works with TCP/IP in general. Something useful wiil be the IPconfig command in windows. You also learn how to monitor the packets I/O. But there's no practical instruction for how to manipulate with the I/O flow yet. It's a good class to obtain background knowledge for later sessions.

This is more of a refresher. This course should be done by people who have an IT background or understanding. There was very minimal explanation of topics apart from the written script. However, the content was good for re-wiring my memory on the topic. Bottom-line: this course is a highlighter and not content-heavy
By Low J H•
Overall the content is decent and I learn a bit here and there. But I feel that it is still lacking slightly, but since it is a introduction I won't fault it for that. But overall I feel that is not much explanation and a lot of buzzword and assuming the audience already have knowledge to it.

Those students who don't have a prior knowledge of networking, can't understand most of the concepts which are only shown in theory in this course. In most cases the instructor is just reading the slides.
Can be improved by putting more practical stuff and explaining more on some concepts.
By Alirio B•
the explanation wasnt clear, it was basically just like if was reading a dictionary. I almost learn nothing. Need to improve the way they explain thing and not just say the meaning of something, for example say DNS and say "DNS is this and this" and then continue with something else.

Provides a lot of awesome information, Professor could have made videos a little longer to avoid missing information. I had to google some stuff due to the lack of concrete definition. But, man this course made everything I needed to know for my interview very clear.

There are some really engaging parts such as the subnet exercises as well as the wireshark piece, but there were a few topics covered such as the protocol headers on which the instructor only read what was in the slides and did not provide much context or examples.
By Krish R•
Basically reading out from the presentation. Expected more explanation. Had to search a lot of the stuff on the internet to get an even clearer picture. Lack of clarity. Could have reduced the broadness of the course and focused a bit more on the depth.

No me fue de mucha ayuda, hubo muchos videos sin traducir y no me parecio nada interesante el ultimo modulo, en el cual lo unico que uno puede visualizar es como se hace una determinada prueba, la verdad no volveria a hacer ni a recomerrda este curso.
By Shein A•
The course is not bad, but there's not quite enough details on how client and server establish the connection and other low level stuff, but the course includes information about internet attacks, which is quite unrelated to protocols stack.

This was advertised as a beginner course. The first two weeks were ok as a beginner, but the following weeks were obscure and incomprehensible. I wouldn't recommend this course, if like myself, you are just starting out in networking.
By Robert A•
It was an okay course, but if you have any knowledge in this area you should skip this course because it is kinda slow and not in detail, nevertheless i repeated terminology and main principles.
By BALAJI R•
Would have been great if the basic concepts are explained in detail. It looks this course is intended for an advanced learner who knows this topic knowledge already.
By Ajay A J•
Could have included more real-life examples. Flow of presentation was not engaging enough. Most of the times the presenter was reading off the slides.
By Mika C•
TCP/IP info was useful, but the course felt rushed. I believe with more preparation, and more material, this could be a very well structured course.
By Ian F•
Too basic and only windows based. The project using wireshark could have been used more to help understand the theory presented earlier.
By Cristhian F F•
its a good course but sometimes it is very introductive, it could be greate if can be added more examples and deeper teorical info
By Christophe D•
Not bad for an introduction, but the level of the questions should be better. More challenging questions would be welcome.
By Praveen S G•
Quite an elementary course and could find some issues in course material too.

Very nice. I recommend you to take this course to go the step Network World.
By Aditya K•
The course needs more detailing and the quizzes need to be better designed.
