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.

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

It was a good course, the first course I'd taken with Duke or Coursera. But I only took the course to get to the Java portion. I wish it was just Java.

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

Great overview of programming. Some of the exercises need a little reworking to match what is provided for code or to match what is being asked.

I will recommend it is not for the one who has never coded. Before Starting this course one must know basic of coding that will be quite helpful.

Some materials are hard to comprehend. More hands-on yet simple to understand tasks are recommended. Nonetheless, thank you for introducing me!

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

This course teaches absolute basics when it comes to programming, with a few tips that give you an edge when it comes to professional coding.

Better than most, even the best programing courses, but still has a slight bit of improvement left. (four and a half stars is more fitting)

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

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

i think the tutorials on the javascript and css can be worked on and improve like the html. but it was a great course and an amazing one

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.

Would make a very gentle intro to programmers for complete beginners.

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.
