This is an introductory course to Blockchain. The supplemented material (in other words self-study) is excellent and in my opinion is the only way to master the concepts and details of this discipline
A comprehensive and clear course that summarizes the basic concepts to understand blockchain technology. Also, the resources and contents included are very valuables. I totally recommend this course.

It's a very good basics course for the beginners and enthusiasts to move ahead in their career towards the Blockchain specialization
par Callum T•
As expected. Basics covered. Final assignment requires a VM which in some cases causes issues. Overall, a useful course.
par Robert M•
A really great course, interesting material that was well presented. Totally recommended.
par Sachin G•
Easy Explantion and All tasks went with ease due simple lessons
par Prashant B•
Everything in the course was as simple as crisp as possible. Except for the assignment!!
par Philip H•
This course was "ok" in my opinion. Its really a shame that Coursera does not have quality checks running to ensure course material provided in their courses are up to date. Throughout the entire specialization, many links where non-functional since resources where not available anymore. Nonetheless, the course provides a solid foundation for learning more about blockchain technology, in my view.

The content was good, but the links for supplemental content need to be reviewed and updated- a few are not available anymore. Also, the final project is buggy. The first account on each node would not activate, and the ethereum was added to the first account on the first node, so I was unable to send a transaction. That's why I got 90% on the final- it didn't work.
par Mandil L•
it is of great help but why is the course not updated?
par Chandra S S•
The course should have more Elaboration on Bitcoin
par Chris R•
Many broken and outdated links and resources.
par Siddharth P•
Project is broken.
par Fabrizio F•
Should make more use of better visuals.
Videos are way too short and basically reading a reference text. Not sure what the benefit of taking this course is compared to buying an audiobook on the subject
Extremely dry for something that was actually created on very practical basis.
Hopefully it will improve in next courses

Pros: This course does cover blockchain basics, and provides an okay structure for exploring the space.
Cons: The course content (lectures, quizzes, and assignments) are uninspired and rote - the professor doesn't understand how to educate. Far below the quality I expect from Coursera.
par Alexander M•
Question in stile `select the wrong ending for sentence` are super confusing and not widely used anymore in nowadays e-learning anymore.

Week 4 assignment's environment setting is a very tedious task. try to make it user friendly.
par Christopher M•
Boring, and quick, minimal information, doesn't actually teach how smart contracts work.
par Mohamed T M•
not clear enough content

This is awful. In the final project, the miner never generated ether. Therefore, flunked. I understand it perfectly. I couldn't get the ethereum application to run correctly. I posted this issue to the forum and read other posts, followed the troubleshooting tips and still doesn't work. THERE IS NO WAY TO GET TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR THIS CLASS OR EVEN TALK TO A HUMAN BEING. if you aren't going to have contact information for technical issues, you are setting some students (like me) up to fail. That is shameful.
par Shiva M•
The external material referenced in this course was actually more useful and better at explaining concepts than this course. I am glad I decided to audit instead of purchasing it. The lecturer should explain the concepts instead of reading off slides, especially when using heavy jargon for an abstract concept like this.
par Sergio A M•
Really bad. Lots of links are outdated with 404. Even in one of the tests it is not possible to answer one question because of that. The total video time is like 1 hour and the rest is just links to pages.
par amrut k•
limited to no support form the TA. The end assignment requirement was a high end computer which wasn't specified before. waste of effort.
par jessica o•
The part at the end of the course where I tried to download the 2gb software was not possible for me.
par Mo K•
Many of the links in the course material have expired. It definitely needs an update.
