"The course is extremely well-structured."

The course is extremely well structured. The readings are very interesting and educative. The projects helped greatly by providing a practical aspect to the theory. I found the community driven submission portal/project gallery to be very effective. They help getting quality critique and push you to do your best. Last but not least, my mentor was fantastic and I'm sure the other mentors are just as good.

"The quantity and quality of the learning material is simply amazing."

The quantity and quality of the learning material is simply amazing. The mentors are really competent and passionate. It's such a joy having the chance to have one. The quantity and difficulty level of the assignment is just right. It's a lot of work and very challenging, but that is how one learns. There's plenty additional material given in the references if you have the time to dig further. I also like the personalized approach made possible with mentoring. The fact that you can submit as many assignment revisions as you like, and get comments on your work is just great. Finally, the website is extremely user friendly. I found out I really like web design. My work here has just shown me a glimpse of how much you need to know and how much efforts you must put in to become a designer but it sure sparked my interest. A big thanks for such a cool product!
