Content was easy to follow and digest - it was a good refresher course for me as I've been in the industry for some time, but within the IT discipline. Learned some new things along the way too.

Knowing Duke´s prestige and being completely honest I was expecting something much more coprenhensive and didactic. Zero Effort law from the lecturer was another point, how is it possible that some corrective banners were needed to correct him!!?? Unpresendent in my Coursera experience.

The technical aspects are very interesting and enlightening

The legislative side is very US oriented and tedious

The instructor didn't respond to the questions on the discussion form. Moreover in the course videos, the instructor seems to be simply reading a pre-written prepared lecture; it is not spontaneous.
