Excellent course .
Just felt that there should be examples that could help someone to understand in a more better way.The videos were good and were very simple and easy to understand then the text.

bad explanations, nothing you can do at exams without researching from external sources.

All the lectures should be simplified and shown by actually coding by the instructors.

The curriculum was poorly organized. A two-hour Youtube course can teach much more about html/css/js than all this 4-week long course. At least you should expect to be able to set up a simple page with some decent (beginner) layout and some interactvity after finishing the course. But no! This much time spent for so little stuff.
What did you I supposedly learn (I know html/css/js already)?
html: h1, p, ul, table, input, div (it should take fifteen minutes to explain)
css: color, background-color, border (maybe five minutes is enough)
js: document.getElementById, onclick, onchange, function, className, for loop, if (an hour for this level of simplicity)
All the above can be put into a one or two-hour video.
I understand that this is a beginner course, but still, it could be managed much better with some real world beginner project like a simple web page with some beginner functionality not a random useless Image processor built on their own library.

Never again will I take a course with Duke University
The teachers act upon scenarios that are way too dramatic and overkill. Best way to describe their acting: Cheesy AF. Also, the old lady has a high pitched voice that sounds like it would break glass, so I always have to turn down my volume when she starts speaking. The students look like they are doing this for an internship. They sound super nervous and stumble all over the place. I cannot follow their instruction with their shaky voice and lack of eye contact.
The lack of genuine behavior and proper explanation of concepts is apalling. I had to leave halfway through the course. Never again with Duke University.

Too much fake excitement and enthusiasm by most of the instructors (not all of them), they put too much effort in acting, ending up being bad actors instead of good (or just normal) teachers. they have the technical and subject matter expertise for sure, but as a learner, i cant get past the too much bad acting in the course - its a constant massive distraction from learning... i feel this course was produced by someone with a background of making cheap entertainment shows on TV. too bad, as the course structure could have made it a promising one! in short, there are many better options out there, this one is not recommended!

I did CS50 Computer Science from Harvard after. Because I still didn't get it . The content is similar, but is MUCH better in every way possible. The teachers, the tools, the projects, the explanations, everything I can think of, is just way better. It's more up to date. I can't think of a better way of teaching it. Also it is cheaper.

Its not detailed in explaining the method. I am a fast time HTML learner and the course starts by giving an assignment to "try it" but as a first time learner I have no idea what I am doing. The instruction videos are very very shallow!. Are they assuming students are pros before they sign up for the course?

Honestly not a very well designed course. I went through the videos and tests for weeks 1 and 2 and found that it's just rushing us through the basics while not really telling us much. Much of it was "here's an introduction to a tiny detail... You go find out the rest"..
