It covers all the basics and the instructors speak very clear, but the exercises and quizzes could be just a little bit more challenging.

Very interestingly explained but since it uses many customized tools, I think it will create problem when I work on real life problems.

Very basic. Learned a few useful things. Last assignment was fun.

Very nice and organized but the "Try it" exercises should be made easier to read and divided to small steps instead of long paragraphs

Fundamental programming concepts like composition were covered in the course, but it felt like some of the content were too specific.

A lot of stuff can be done in photoshop and later can be processed in web site. We really don't need to learn green screen stuff.

This is a good course, but the TA cannot reply our message on the forums timely. Also the script of simpleImage()doesn't work.

Was very good, but the titles of week 3 and 4 threw me off since I thought they would be seperate weeks, not the same one.

Good for beginners, but personally I feel that the questions should be random for the graded quizzes when it is retaken.

Some examples are given via mac and can be confusing for Windows user. Explanations of some code logic could be useful.

This is a good course for beginners but for the more experienced web programmers this is like a good brain teaser only.

Good course. A little demanding for someone who cannot invest substantial time figuring out how to code some problems.
