I have learnt the causes of cyber conflicts and raising tensions among nations, the causes and how nations can come to mutual understanding or agreements. Thanks.

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

Much of the literature was unavailable which I think is a downside. Also, while interesting, the topics were covered only superficially and I felt that that questions during the videos and at the end of the module were very easy and did not challenge the participant to think or research.

Could make use of more real world examples. Hacktivism and individual actors receive more attention than they deserve given their extremely limited capabilities. Over all a good class though.

While informative and interesting, I believe the course hadn't been updated in a few years and some of the links to further readings didn't work. I really enjoyed what I studied.

I like the comparisons between past physical wars and current cyberwar. However, the course take the long way to explain very basic elements of nations interactions and trust.

Professor quality was not up to expected. Material was interesting, but lectures could have been less monotone. Some of the links to reading material were broken.

Cyber topic speaker needs more speaking practice: too wooden, h. Need to include downloadable files of lecture slides.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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 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 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.

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.

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