It is hard to even say that these were the basics. All of topics are very briefly explained. Reading the descritpion of the course you nearly get as much as after watching the videos. In addition this is an excerpt from a larger course.

The course is simple and average. This course is just a basic course and does not cover most of the topics. Just basics have been covered. However the first video consists of Network cables all around the world which is a fascination i got from this course.

Il y a un problème au niveau du texte écrit. L'automate qui fait la traduction ne comprend pas bien les sigle. Il est écrit HDDP au lieu de HTTP, et d'autre choses du genre.

Slightly outdated. Presentation - could - be - a - bit - more - engaging. Part of "Internet and Web Development Fundamentals". Quite nice for the very basics though.

Section 1 is very informative. Section 2 & 3 looks just started but didnt go anywhere. I feel could you have added few more informations on section 1 instead of section2 & section 3.

Kriti1 August 2020

Annemarie28 January 2020

For me it barely explains the Web Dev process. It's just an easy over view slide with no explanation whatsoever.

Michael28 January 2020

A short but informative course. I would recommend this course if you would like to know how the internet works.

Everest26 December 2019

Things are quite clear and concise in his explanations. It's good for people are really new to network fundamentals.

Zabil1 September 2019

This course was good, easy to understand for beginners. But this course is incomplete it gives only web dev process overview and a detailed first process info. but other 11 processes aren't showing at all. This course is good for some basic networking terms so thats why I am giving it high ratings plus it was free... so worth trying

Chris21 July 2019

Since I paid nothing for this course, I got mostly what I paid for. The main first section about how the internet works lacked depth. Again, free course, probably shouldn't have expected much. There was quite a bit they didn't go into depth about like what are get and post requests, why 301, 400, and 404 response codes, and even how an http data packet is structured. If more content is added, it might become worth while, but not as it stands now.
