I like how in depth this gets. it explains it very well an in ways for people who are starting off in this field to get a basic understanding in exactly what we are learning. very well put together!
Despite not being very fond of areas such as human-computer interaction, I found this course to be well-presented and useful. Definitely a necessity for anyone planning on building secure software.

Contents seems repeatative . Also When you already discussing the PDF contents in video lecture, I don't see asking to complete PDF reading before video lecture. I have spent reading the doc and felt I could complete the course much faster if i could skip reading some big PDFs. Otherwise it is good.

There are some questions that can be debated for clarity. Example: A company creates a password V^$5t.b2. Is this easy to crack no. But the question ALSO says it's given to the employee on a piece of paper. Is this easy? Yes, there's paper laying around with passwords on them.

The course is so old. Even the concept is still the same, the versions of applications that takes part in the videos are really old. The versions of gmail that took part in some week's lecture seems at least 3-4 years old.

Well prepared and interesting lectures. However, for a intermediate course, I've expected more comprehensive content. Let's see what the next courses for the cybersecurity specialization have to offer.

The course described the topics very well. Very easy to understand the defferent meanings. The material is from 6-7 years ago and should be updated.

Videos with guest speakers were unhelpful. Also, quizzes were not accurate and poorly written questions.
By Jeroen R•
OK, but not really in-depth. Still has useful pointers, but they could be summarized on an A4 sheet.

The course was really good when played at 1.5x speed, at the normal pace it was really too slow.
Good course, but not really what I expected.
All materials are common things and knowledge.
By Tom G•
Some good info, but the course needs to be updated to correct long known mistakes.

Content was a little boring. Secondly, Voice quality wasn't up to the mark.
By Daniel K P•
Needs more content ; present course repeats
information, too often
By Andrew A•
The content is good, It partially outdated being made in ~2013
By Giulio B•
Very little useful information
By Alberto R•
Useful concepts. Quite simple.

This course is about "good practices" for user interface design. If this is what you are looking for it may be worth your time, just be aware that the "production" (quality) of the videos is among the worst courses I have taken in Coursera. On the other hand, if you are looking for a heavy Cybersecurity related course I suggest you to stay away from this one, unless you are taking the specialization in which case you don't have other choice.
Videos Quality: 1/5
Practice/Theory ratio: 1/5

I did this entire course in about 25 minutes without watching the videos or reading anything. I would bet a person with general common sense could pass this. I had more trouble figuring out that received input in Python is always taken in the form of a string and must by converted into a floating point number or integer than I had passing this entire course. I'm not sure why this is in a cyber security track.
By Daniel S•
Course content could have been much more compact in my opinion. The topic is not complicated to understand but the videos are very long and need a lot of time to watch. Test at the end is only multiple choice with many True/False questions -> when you select the wrong solution you will see what's correct very easily, so it's easy to pass without understanding the topic really.

Needs some serious revision. Lots of errors (e.g. week 2 summary of Cranor study completely botched), audio issues (loudness variability), quizzes (e.g., week 2 asks questions from week 3, questions/answers frequently imprecise), etc.
By Tim B•
There are many parts of the lectures that are very quiet and even with my speakers turned to max, I struggled to hear, while other parts were clear. The course is interesting, but I doubt that anyone would pay to attend this course.
By Matas W•
A large amount of this really didn't seem focused on Security. A large part was UX. The Quiz for week 2 contained a lot of material that wasn't covered until the following week.
By Dimitrios D•
Very professional approach, but a bit lower level than expected. In addition the audio could be of better quality, in some presentations.
By Roger A•
I have learn small about security and some basics about design, perhaps this training should be renamed to "design" instead security....
