One Week Left to Register for Mobile Web Course

30 08 2011

Registration for the second edition of W3C’s Mobile Web Online Training Course is open one more week. The acclaimed course begins Monday, 5 September and lasts 8 weeks.

Web developers face a number of challenges when designing for the wide array of mobile devices people use today. This course explains how to use Web standards to provide the best experience to the most users: which versions of HTML and CSS are effective in a mobile context, how to overcome various constraints tied to mobile devices, practical client and server-side techniques, what you can do with emerging APIs, and more.

The course is developed and taught by the W3C/MobiWebApp team. On successful completion, participants receive a W3C Certificate. Learn more about the Mobile Web Online Training Course.

Encouraging feedback from the MWABP training course

5 08 2011

The June 2011 mobile Web training course is just over. We are now sending certificates of completion to students who passed all course assignments. Excellent success rate so far, with students happy to have spent 8 weeks with us.

We are especially pleased by the feedback comments we got, ranging from praise of the teachers (yeah to Phil Archer and Frances de Waal!), to the high quality of the course. Here is some of the great feedback we received from students:

  • “I’d definitely recommend this course. Not only is it full of up-to-date, useful, excellent information, but the emphasis on true learning is what makes it particularly valuable.”
  • “The instructors were amazing — supportive, encouraging, and demanding all at the same time! “
  • “The diverse mix of professionals from around the world brought a robust forum discussion … these comments, feedback, and additional comments about technology in their part of the world was priceless user feedback …”
  • “AWESOME experience!!! I have taken away a great deal more than I anticipated!”
  • “Great course, money well invested. Thank you.”

Week by week, step by step, students gained more and more experience and, accordingly, their assignments gained in more and more complexity.
