It gives an exhaustive overview of lot of concepts I heard of but did not have the opportunity to delve into. Really easy to understand , sometimes with help of other contents found on Internet but really very interesting and obviously usefull for me as I wanted to expand my skills in order to do project management. It's always interesting to have the basis to understand the discussions.

Comprehensive course if you want to understand the basics of computer hardware.

Simple to understand topics, with suitable images.

Some places the pronunciation of the instructor is difficult to understand, however the transcript is available.

Some terms could have been simple to understand with additional visuals.

Very good course if you want to overcome the fear of IT

The MOOC was really interesting, I had some difficulties in some units that are mostly explained in detail to users who already have some knowledge about the subject. Besides that, it is a very interesting course for beginners.

This course is very well designed to make a beginner understand the fundamentals of Information Technology. However if the videos could be made of less than 5 minutes, it will be easier for the students.
