Starting from scratch, I feel like I've gained a great basic understanding of IT support. It was informative, and it has motivated me and left me hungry for more. I am pumped to start the next course!

Mirrors IT Fundamentals & portions of CompTIA A+. Videos are satisfyingly short & explanations are concise enough. One should be able to breeze past this course seamlessly before the due date with a minimum amount of time, especially, in this era of the technically incline. Otherwise, the pace of this course is comfortable.

They start off by explaining the definition of a computer and by the end of it, you will know how to build one. It's both broad and detailed enough to cover a solid foundation in computers. Your IT friends will longer think you're uneducated. It moves quickly but you don't feel rushed. The information is clearly presented.

I recommend taking this course to get the basic knowledge that you will need on your journey to becoming an IT professional. The information is explained very well and reinforced with test quizzes and virtual training. If you take good notes and study you will be well on your way and you can also refer back to the videos.

It was a fun course filled with useful information. I got to know the principles of networks and the principles of customer service. It was great. Also, preparing for the interviews was really helpful.
Also there was the hardware section, how to assemble the computer, and of course the Windows and Linux operating systems

Great course and would highly recommend it to not just people interested in a career in IT but also those who might work with computers and want to become more familiar with the inner workings of a computer. The quizzes are not too difficult and the videos are clear and concise, plus the applications are quite practical.

The way the class was taught and with the virtual labs, it has helped me understand the world of IT Support. I do not have experience and only elementary knowledge of IT, but even though its just an intro course, I really feel motivated by it and have picked up new skills with this class. I look forward to the next one.

This was a fantastic course. I loved the instructors, the addition of reading materials, and the interactivity available with the quizzes and tests. The course was simple and easy to maneuver. It was great to see how much time the next lesson would take, and everything was organized and made for an enjoyable experience.

At first I thought registering for this track was a mistake, since I have already been 3 years in a I.T. services and equipment support role, nonetheless went on from lecture to lecture. I found it quite a refresher, and I also learned new skills and concepts. My favourite is the Costumer Service course. I LOVED it. :-)

This is the very first course of the program but it already gave me so much confidence for the future and more excitement. The instructors were very knowledgeable and their way of teaching made most complex subjects such as the architecture of a computer easy to understand. The four layers were so well covered. Thanks.

If you will take this class, my advice to you is plan ahead, organize your time, and stick to your schedule. ... I have taken at this class so far is the most valuable. ... share our work with other students, thereby creating an environment to learn ... As I reflect on my experience a few important points come to mind.

Really helpful for anybody that has no or little experience with IT, and even if you have some, it's a great refresher. Also helpful as a supplement if studying for other certifications like CompTIA A+. The exercises and quizzes definitely help with retention and I learned a few new things I'd not seen/heard elsewhere.

What an excellent class! Not too short and not too long -- just the perfect amount of everything including videos, readings, quizzes, etc. Coursera has truly redefined online education. I am very impressed. I am very much looking forward to the remaining courses of this certificate as well as more certificate programs.

Even if you have no intention of continuing on for a full IT support program, this should be a basic course for anyone who needs to use a computer as any part of their work and/or home life. Having the fundamentals gives you a much greater appreciation of computers, and will better enable you in their use at any point!

This is a great introductory course for anyone who's looking to get into the IT world. Not only it is clear at the topics it's giving it also encourages users throughout the course. The tools provided work fine and are easy to use, they even have detailed step by step guide in case anyone gets lost. Very recommended.

The course gave an overview of the IT support Fundamentals in a very practical manner. To me the IT was a pretty vague term and I wasn't sure how to define IT but after completing this course I can easily say that it has taken away all the confusion and gave a very spot on description of what IT support is all about.

This has been an amazing first course. Alot was a refresher from college course, however most was new because I was able to do actually hands on experience with the labs. I wish we had more lab time to practice, however I will install a Virtual Machine so i can practice on. Really looking forward to the next course.

Excellent way to start the program. There's enough history presented to help increase background knowledge before going into the details of IT. The extension recommendations were easy links that elaborated more details on specific topics for further research. I really enjoyed learning more about binary codes also.

Very informative and thorough. This was the first online class i have ever taken and i really enjoyed it. I was able to take detailed notes by either slowing down the presenters talking speed or review the content as many times as I felt necessary to get a clear understanding of the new information I was learning.

This course is either a great introduction to computer systems and IT or a great refresher with details to help explain what you already know. For me, it was a refresher and filled in gaps in my knowledge of the transmission of data and the history of the internet. It was very easy to understand and take notes.
