    All basics are covered and a good start to learn cyber security.

    The concepts are well explained.

    Could make it more industry oriented. This will be helpful for people who can get ready to pursue a carrier in the cyber security field.

    Need to implement practical sessions and incorporate it as part of the syllabus. Also if possible the assignments can at least be in the form of practical exercises whereby the syllabus of the course is covered and a step by step methodology can be provided to the students to work on such problems.

    Except for this the course is in the right track to upgrade the students knowledge and give a insight to the cyber security world.

    The course is exactly the one I intended to do.It covers all the aspects of cyber security.Beautifuly designed course.The instructor of course is at her best. Thanks to the instructor for the training.

    The downside seems to be for the application. There seem to be few bugs which need to be worked upon, like match the following does not contain the other part.(2) Marks are not timely updated (3) downloading of ppt and e-txt is not available for mobile version (4) Subjective assignments should be allowed for mobile version, is difficult for people not having laptop all the time available with them

    Overall the application and trainings are awesome

    The course is going good and the whole structure of the course is very helpful. But if there were more parts of technical part such as technical explanations and practical exposure to various aspects then it would had been more useful and moreover anyone will learn more effectively in technical rather than in textual format. But i appreciate and thank for providing me an opportunities in enrolling in such a valuable course. Thank you

    Respected Mam,

    The teaching methodology is great using graphics, examples, ppt, and text material followed with objective and subjective assignment. I have gone through all most entire study material upto week five, it is theoretically very exhaustive and felt hard to remember everything but very useful.

    I would request you if possible please add some demonstration on attacks and prevention likewise on each major topic so that the concept could be understood in a better way.

    yours sincerely,

    Regards
