Excellent overview of existing state of play. Also very interesting coverage of psychology underpinning cyber behaviours. Thank you for this enlightening course!

I wish there should be a more detailed and broadened bulletins of particular and concrete cases about cyber conflicts throughout the whole world.

Was ok, got a little boring after week 2

This course provides a great foundation to build upon, but it is not very engaging. The instructor is simply reading off the screen and it looks like all the lectures were recorded over one day. He struggles to read the material towards the end of the course, while often mispronouncing the words and neglecting the concept of punctuation. I would recommend reading the reference book used in this course, "Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know", because listening to the lectures is painful!

The content of this course was helpful. I learned some important concepts regarding conventional warfare, and motivations and difficulties with cyber conflicts. However the production of the course was terrible. The sounds quality was bad and distracting, and the presenters were obviously very uncomfortable speaking to camera. This aspect distracted from the effectiveness of the teaching.

Very basic, some of the points made are based too much in theory and don't relate to the reality of the cyber environment.

I think the course was OK, though not much more than that.
I was rather disappointed from the way professor Sanjay Goel carried his part: It was very dry. Not interesting. It was clear that he was reading from his papers rather then telling/ sharing something with us. It's almost better to just read the text- only that then one misses the pop-up questions.
Professor Williams lectures were much better to my opinion. He is far more engaged. I found his part more interesting and easier to follow.
Having said that, I'd like to thank them both for creating this course and putting an effort.

Professors accent very hard to understand. Week 5's lesson should be reviewed as may have no place in class

Too much emphasis on the psychology of conflict. The last lecture references future lectures, but none exist. Doesn't seem to be well-organized.

For me this course lacks substance. It is just high level and a quick insight. I feel it should be developed much further, broader and deeper before it should be on this platform. It might be good if you are completely unaware of the topic, but working in IT this brings nothing new.

I'm sorry that I'm going to sound harsh, but this course is useless.
It touches so many different topics without going deeply into any of them. All you get is a basic knowledge about All Things Cyber™.
The recommended readings are all over the place, the video captions look like they're just a basic speech recognition and like nobody actually proof read them. They're full of errors. Lecturers say one word, captions show a completely different word. Plus, they're full of spelling errors. (Kadafi regime in Libya!? Really!?)
You can get the same amount of knowledge by reading two or three Wikipedia pages. Don't waste your time on this course.

The same information was covered in multiple lessons. It was a very conceptual look at cyber conflicts that you could get if you paid attention to the news over the last five years.

Course material was interesting but very rudimentary, the courses biggest challenge was understanding its spoken English. I do not recommend this course.

The lectures are very well-organized. The topics are also cover in this field. However, the lectures are very dry and boring. The main professor were reading the scripts on the monitor. From my perspective, with his knowledge in this field as being described on his personal web site, he should be able to talk comfortably by looking at the topic on the slide then discuss about it in detail. I would suggest to change the environment to be at the wide open space, like coffee shop, to make this course more attractive. I'm sorry, it is not what I expected.

The title of this course does not reflect its contents.
Modes of presentation were not very appealing (images, examples, visuals).
Lecturer needs to work on his presentation skills.
