About and FAQ

W3DevCampus classes are online. Students learn at their own pace and can access the course material from anywhere in the world. The content material is structured in a way that it allows students to learn step-by-step  and learn “by doing”. Students learn through exploration, rightly designed for the right behaviors, and with great teachers providing support.

In addition to the instructors’ help and guidance along the training path, the courses’ discussion forums remain a favorite tool among participants. Discussion forums satisfy their need for collaboration and networking. Participants cherish being part of groups that work together and motivate each other during the time of the course and even after, as W3C courses’ materials are available as archives.

How does this work?

All courses follow a similar format: weekly modules consisting of lectures and links to further resources, followed by practical exercises such as quizzes and/or assignments. A discussion forum allows participants to discuss the course with each other and with the instructors.

  • Once registered to the e-learning platform, you have access to an online classroom. During the course, instructors post lectures and hands-on assignments in the online classroom at the beginning of each week.
  • You have one week to go through the lectures and complete the assignments, which you can submit online as well. You should complete the homeworks and activities in order to get more practice and solidify your understanding of the material.
  • You can discuss any questions on the lectures and assignments with the instructors and with fellow students using the classroom forum.

The elearning platform has been developed using Moodle, a widely used open-source online education environment (users include e.g. the Open University in the UK).

What are the advantages of attending online courses?

  • You do not need to travel – you can follow the course from your home or workplace; there is no need to travel to a face-to-face training event, thus saving cost and time.
  • You can attend class at any time – there is no set meeting time, so you can follow the course at a time that is convenient for you.
  • You have direct access to experts – the convenience of online courses allows first-class experts to do the training, so you will get first-hand information.

What do I need?

You need access to the Internet and a Web browser. All material is delivered via the Web and so is accessible on any browser.

Do you offer discounts?

Yes, from time to time at specific conferences. We mainly offer an early-bird rate for all of our courses.

How do I get a Certificate of Completion and an Open Badge?

The course includes practical tutor-marked assignments (TMAs) that need to be completed satisfactorily for you to receive a certificate of completion and a badge. This certifies that you completed the course successfull, it does not carry endorsement by any organization or authority.

What is a badge?

A digital badge is an online representation of a skill you’ve earned. Using Mozilla’s Open Badges infrastructure, W3DevCampus issues badges backed by our own seal of approval. Learners can then collect badges from different W3C courses and display them across the Web — on their resumes, Web sites, social networking profiles, job sites and more. Create your backpack and start collecting badges from W3C Training.

How do I add badges on my Open Badges profile?

After creating your personal Open Badges backpack, go to your classroom. Select Navigation> My Profile> My badges and click on “connect to a bag of badges” for configuring the connection. Don’t forget to add your badge to your backpack by clicking on the “add” icon.
