The reading link to Week 03's Framework and their purpose is Broken. Please Fix it. Everything else seemed perfect. I would recommend this course for people who think of starting their careers in CyS.

Although the content of the course is amazing, however the quality of recordings is surprisingly very much below whatever online training material I have seen. Neighbours hammering a nail in the wall, another person talking at the same time in the room, very poor voice quality, typos in the presentations, 10 different types of slides, copy pastes from websites, etc.

I'm like, Are you serious IBM?

Interesting topic and content covered was right. But, the sound quality is really bad in most of the videos and the feeling I got is that the course was prepared fast, with cheap equipment (maybe through phone calls - not even using a proper mouse) and with no intention to update it (old links even from 2016, some not working anymore). Disappointing quality from a company like IBM.

I felt the Content was good but not all of it was actually useful. The videos should be crisp and point to point. Learned many new things and I appreciate IBM for making this wonderful course. But, the audio quality was terrible sometime. The audio is not recorded professionally. And, the instructor's accent was not understandable sometimes. I think this could be improved .

It was a good intro to cyber security for someone like me with zero knowledge in this field. However, at times it was difficult to understand the instructors who don't have English as their mother tongue. But it was especially difficult to understand Domenico Raguseo discussing the Cyber Kill Chain in Week 2. I just decided to turn off the audio and just read the slides.

Some parts of the course were a little difficult to understand because of the organization. The presenters in some of the parts were jumping around or not fully explaining a concept which made it a little difficult to follow. Also if there were texts or websites that can be given before the course to help supplement with the course it would be greatly appreciated.

Your content is very good but the sound quality is very worse not getting anythings. please put with good sound quality. You guys works on IBM and doesn't have good quality microphone? How cheap? The course cannot be best without audio with is everything and and the quality of sound is low that the microphone that you are using is less than a dollar.

Some of the material is repetitive (f.e. talks about the same exact classification of threaths in weeks 1,2 & 3). I feel there wasn't a good communication between the lecturers, hence the repetition. At some videos audio was really bad. Otherwise, the course gives a good, but brief introduction. Hope the next one in the specialisation is better.

I gave this course a 3 stars rating because some of explanations & prouncations wasn't fully clear to follow especially, while watching the diagram layouts, etc, but I did enjoyed learning lots of new things about computer hackers & actors, malwares, cybercrime, cyberwarfare, CIA triads, security programs &, security threats!

The course structure does not seem to follow a logic flow; all the concepts presented are very useful but often repeated in different lectures; sometime the material and videos seems to be taken from other classes keeping just the relvant part. To summarize: a lot of good concepts and information badly structured,

There were some great visuals and obvious tons of expert teaching. However, some of the audio was difficult to understand, I often felt like the instructor was reading off of a slide rather than elaborating and providing context or simple examples, and the general flow of the course didn't really make sense to me.

m​ost of the videos were recorded poorly, made it so hard to understand at a point. using non english speaking lecturers is a downside to taking this course, and it states its a begginer level but some things are mentioned and expected to be automatically understood at the begginer level. quite dissapointing

por Oren K

This is supposed a course for beginners, with no background at all. The lecturers use many technical terms that are unknown for students without any prior knowledge. So I obviously googled them (TCP,UDP, etc.) and studied them, but I would prefer that everything that matters will be explained in the course.

Some material links are dead, subtitles are software generated and need amendments, many videos have the slides/audio out of sync, some quizzes have poor questions. The course does, however, provide very useful external resources to develop the necessary skills in cybersecurity. It's an ok INTRO course.

This course is a good start for beginners. But I wont say, it was the best as personally I felt there is alot more to cover for beginners. This was more like a introductory course and very theoretical and no hands on practices were given. Audio quality must improve too. But It was good learning.

Great information, the subtitles are a little off and the audio is somewhat hard to hear. I had to re-watch some of the videos in order to fully understand what was being said.

But other than that, it was really good information. A good foundation into CyberSecurity. I cannot wait to learn more!

The course content is quite good although is outdated, the text, the audio and the videos are all from 2018, sometimes you cant even read entire texts or charts since they are completely blurred out. Really liked the info provided but I was really dissapointed in the materials that were used.

por Reef M A

Okay.. It's good and have a lot of amusing information .. but it's boring because all content is theoretical and nothing is practical, the voice and translate are not clear and training bag is not available .

I hope to develop the course more and then it will be INTERESTING !!

Thanks <3

It was alright. I learned a fair amount, but being lectured to by unengaging instructors reading off a powerpoint, some of whom don't speak english very well, can make getting through this class feel more like a chore. Regardless, it still contained good information.

I​t gives a broad introduction, but the videos are so outdated! The audio quality is terrible and some of the instructors with accents are extrememly difficult to understand. Appreciate it is a cheap course, but the videos really need updating with clear audio.

por Mark N

Giving 3 stars because audio quality is poor. Some of the questions in the quiz are not even mentioned in the videos, some of the choices/questions have spelling errors.

Regardless, it provides an very decent introduction to Cybersecurity Tools and Cyber Attacks

The course has a poor quality of audio and slides. Most of the videos are pre-recorded from internal training and they ofter refer to topics not covered in the course. The topics were interesting though but often too basic or not well connected together.

por Shannon R

T​his course is full of audio issues. One woman I could not even focus on what she was saying because someone in a nearby office to hers was banging on a door so loudly. It made me feel as if this course was just kind of thrown together and rushed.

por Vincent I

The course modules were great but some videos audios were not audible enough and that was below my expectation. I’m glad I completed the course. It was really challenging combining work,business,family and other commitments with doing this course.

some of the speakers were barely intelligible and some of the scripts were rambling and barely relevant.

other elements were fine with decent slides to accompany.

would suggest more detail on slides to compensate for the poorer presenters.
