    Great course, but it is a bit challenging even for professionals. If you take it, please make sure to do the readings and do research online before joining the discussions and complete the quizzes.

    I once completed this course andI had a great experience learning it but I could not submit my final practical exams because of my job schedules.
    The questions were really tuff, hard and confusing.

    An overview of biometrics and its different technologies. For me lack of technical explanations. The quality of quizzes should be improved.
