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.

The audio could be better. In some of the lectures the sound would fluctuate from very low to moderately higher.

The quality of videos is rather low. Also, in some videos, the backgrounds are quite distractive.

Doesnt meet my expectations - it is all about "Usable", but not about "Security" at all.
