This might be the perfect course for some, but it wasn't what I had hoped for. Here are a few things you should know:

1. Don't be mislead by the fact that "Responsive" is the first word in the course title. I thought the course was going to focus primarily on responsive web design (designing layouts for different size screens). That is mentioned, but it's not the primary focus of the class.

2. If you're looking for a broad overview of the main concepts of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, this is probably the right course for you. The material is covered very broadly, but n…

It is a very good introductory course to HTML, CSS and JavaScript as well as libraries Bootstrap and jQuery.

Quite helpful for the beginners. Even for those who haven't been into programming ever. Well explained lessons and examples helped me create a moderately creative and responsive web page. Looking forward to the specialization course.

Outstanding class, and a perfect introduction to HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The examples given are detailed, and explained well. Though there's a lot more this course could cover, for the 4 weeks it's a good deal, and gives you a good starting point to learn more on your own.

The course is implemented in an unprofessional and awful manner. Many mistakes, missing explanations, and especially the javascript part is a joke.
