    This is very good course. It goes into enough details to be interesting and useful. It covers a lot of ground. It doesn't waist time to introduce HTML. It only talks about what's new in HTML5 or how old HTML feature has changed by HTML5. Quizzes are too easy and labs are optional but if you do labs you'll learn a lot.
