A very helpful code which allows you to learn the simple of JavaScript HTML and CSS. Very helpful in building websites and an excellent course for beginners or even people who have never coded before.

The assignment,quiz, reading, etc should be on Spanish too or at least some subtitle for people who join into this courses because they have subtitle in his mother tongue.

It's a very good course. It best fits beginners and gives them fundamental information to help them understand what programming is and how they can think grammatically.

The content of CSS and HTML are really good in this course, but the details about the JavaScript Code are not sufficient, this let me hard to understand the JavaScript.

This program was great! I also suggest checking out the John's Hopkins course on Web Development as it talks about GitHub hosting, an important step in web hosting.

This course is good for foundation of web development, specially for javascript. I was hoping for tutorial about writing code in offline editor instead of codepen.

Only the basics of HTML and CSS are covered here. The most of the course is about javascript implementation to solve challenges on modifying images pixel by pixel.

The theory section is not enough to understand the concept clearly.Sometimes,we don't even get response to our doubts which is doubt of majority of the students.

Very well rehearsed course, well made questions. I would only recommend this course to have the students to use a local IDE like VSC instead of an online editor.

There are some good golden nuggets to be picked up. You get taught some very logical scientific approaches to programming and solving problems with coding.

This course is Amazing! I learned a lotabout webpages and how to style them. It only fails because we don't see an example of javascript on a real webpage.

Lots of good information and great for a strong programming base. A few of the assignments seemed a bit advanced compared with the lessons of the section.

The information is overwhelming may try a shorter hand on coding practice more often to give learner the time and space needed to realize the information

I liked the content covered in this course and the way it was presented, but I found that sometimes it could have been presented in a more engaging way.

Nicely explained but a bit boring for me. i believe that is my fault, because i don't like web design and i also knew a lot of the things in this course

I have learnt basic HTML , using CSS styles for improving the look and feel. The major part was altering the Document Object Model using JavaScript.

The lectures were easy to understand, projects were challenging but the discussion forum helped a lot! I wish the discussion forum was more active.

course is good if you wish to know more about technical stuff like javascript rather than styling and creating a beautiful looking website with CSS

An excellent introduction to these disciplines. Quiz questions and the font size could have had some minor improvements, otherwise excellent.

good course. sometimes they don't go over fundamentals and nomenclature so it takes awhile to understand. I seemed to learn the material.
