This course runs for 4 weeks. Each week, a new chapter will be revealed (usually together with an assignment), and you’ll have a chance to interact continuously with the teacher and fellow students about the course’s content via the course’s discussion forum.
You will need to spend around 8-10 hours per week on the course. Some weeks are busier than others and may require more time.
During the first week of this course, we will look at the language’s fundamental concepts, such as values, variables, expression, operators, conditional statements and loops.
Week 4: The JQuery library
During this week, we will again use functionalities provided by the DOM API and browsers studied in week 3. But we will do it through JQuery, hence reducing the number of lines of code and improving readability. The third and final assignment is to create a sound box Web application.
How do I get a certificate of completion and a badge?
The course includes 3 practical tutor-marked assignments (TMAs) and one quiz that all need to be completed satisfactorily if you want to receive a certificate of completion and a badge*.
* 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.
