Great course that is full of useful information and presented in an easy to understand way. It's an awesome beginner course that will add to your knowledge and further your knowledge of IT security.
An absolutely engaging and challenging feat that I am so proud to have completed. I hope this opens new door and better job opportunities so that I can better enhance my future. Thank you Google :)

The course content and material was well prepared but I would strongly suggest this in the future delivery of the course. I personally suggest going more in depth of those terminology rather than just briefly explaining them in just 6-10 mins video should help more for an individual with 0% knowledge on IT security. It wasn't so much of challenge to me because of my pervious experience with IT security but newbies would definitely find it hard to follow in the course perfectly. Just my own thoughts.

Too much of camera work and the shot of instructors, who is reading the texts. The texts sounded like more in a written-format, which is a little bit hard to understand by listening to the instructor. The visual slide should be presented longer while the instructor is explaining the material. More slides could be utilized to help us understand complicated terms, systems and protocols. Also that way, I think it would be easier for the learners to memorize via visual in addition to the aural discussion.

Overall this is a decent overview of security topics. I think the videos could be improved - there are too many 'talking heads' and not enough diagrammatic explanation. Also, the transcripts vary in places from what the speaker is saying - I suspect they are being created automatically.
I had no problems with the online labs, although I think that some instructions might cause learners difficulty whose first language is not English.

I was looking forward to this course yet it was very disappointing that the instructor's delivery of the course was from a textbook. very hard to understand the content delivered unlike the previous courses in this certificate, not enough practical exercises as well, and feeling like i need to find and do another security course elsewhere

Even though it shared a lot of information I believe that it needs to be updated with current and more relevant material. The instructor read off a lot of information that was given to him obviously but it needs to be a little better. I hate to say that I actually lost interest half way through the course.

Technical details on encryption algorithms and cypher methods to secure a network/IT infrastructure; Antivirus/malware detection and prevention; Disk encryption and growing a security-oriented company culture; All these aspects are interesting and useful to know from the Tech support role POV;

you really should use more animations in order to convey an abstract or conceptual point. when looking up the different types of encryption on wikipedia, they do a better job demonstrating it. where as, you guys do a better job of explaining the encryption process.

It's a good course, but not very comprehensive; they lay a lot of terms on you one right after the other and barely explain each one. Learning material is subpar at best as well; visuals are few and far between and many aren't properly marked or explained.

I was expecting a little more in depth coverage of the topics with labs to go with them. I think this course should be split in two and maybe earlier courses like the first and second course could be coalesced into one since they contain less material.

Enjoyed the clear presentation on the subjects. Did not care for the jumping back and forth from windows to linux. Felt that a more linear approach would be better for new learners. Also it does seem that the labs need to be updated
por Amer K S•
This course was completely different than its predecessors in terms of mode of delivery. A lot of narrative descriptions, lots and lots of boring definitions and less practicality i.e.: supplemental reading in the form of videos.
por Jan S•
This course would greatly benefit if more practical exercises were included. The theoretical background was broad and well presented, but the shortage of actual exercises made it too transitory
por Ilias P•
It's a great course! The only thing that isn't so good for me is the final project. You'll have to wait for someone (another student) to view and grade your project. And this takes some days!
por Abdullah J•
The Course is amazing but lacks a lot of visual presentation and too much data to process without any supplemental material that visualizes the process sometimes.
Otherwise good course
por Abdelrahman A M•
This is a heavy material that needs more diagrams and animations to simplify other than thi it`s very awesome and beneficial
por Darrean S•
To long to grade stuff, going to have to give a poor review based on that , however the learning material is nice.
por Misel F•
Could be more hands-on. Some stuff feel basic. A solid try by google to convert cheap-hands into future IT roles.
por Hank H•
Would have liked some labs and more detail about services. VPNs, Reverse Proxies. IDS, IPS, all that jazz.
por Deleted A•
I thought they would Teach like security on different OSs and how to protect them, more hands on...
por Ngoc Q P•
There are a few of questions that had ambiguous answers (in my opinion)
por Daniel M•
kinda rough with a lot of info that you will need to go over again
por Tania L•
Not enough hands-on practice just a bunch of terminology.
por Emmett H•
It was a ton of information but I got the most of it.
por AbdAllah A A H•
the course was long and hard to focus in every thing
por Quanbin S•
this course has too much information but less lab.
