What Learners Are Saying

Kieth Malaza Team Lead

I had tried learning html a long time ago. I barely remember anything from back then. I got stuck when I wasn’t able to get the image to load and I gave up. This time with the course, it was so much easier and there was so much more I could learn within the limited time I spent in it. I’m glad that I took this course and it helped me expand my understanding and scope of HTML, I would recommend this course to anyone who uses internet. 

Joseph Livaic Business Analyst

I don’t know what made me try this course, but once I started it something clicked. I finished this course in a week and now I am learning CSS3. I am hooked and I have found myself reading up a lot about HTML and other languages and web development in general. I look at websites very differently nowadays. I am more interested in looking at the code of the websites now even though I understand very little about it. 

Eisleen Freeman Communication Specialist

I never saw myself as a techie or a coder. It was my friend who asked me to try this course. I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed this course. I still do not consider myself as a web developer, but I know someday I will be, and I will have this course and my friend to thank for that. I’m looking forward to doing more such courses to develop my scope as an aspiring developer.  

Steffany Hilliard Graphic Designer

Learning HTML5 made my life a whole lot easier. I used to rely on my colleague to provide me with the HTML files and this process was causing so many delays in my work as a designer. Now I can do these tasks myself and my productivity has been so much faster since I can do it at my convenience without waiting for anyone else. The whole experience was exceptionally smooth, and it is great to have added a useful skill to my profile. 

Margaret Brady Key Account Manager

I was in a dead-end role, and I wanted a change of career. This course gave me the opportunity to explore web development with HTML. I was surprised at the ease with which I was able to pick it up. The instructor was very insightful in how to proceed with the exercises and how I should proceed to enhance my skillset. Thanks to this course, I am looking forward to building a career in web development.  

Billy Page Student

The HTML5 course was very well structured in a logical manner. It was easy to understand how it works and I was able to build interesting pages with the limited tools I had.
