ICS 120-[Introduction to HTML and CSS via Codecademy]

Codecademy

CodeCademy

So I just had finished the tutorial course in HTML and CSS through codecademy.com. At first I thought that it’ll be an old-fashioned and one big lame tutorial about HTML and CSS. Why did I say so? Well let’s just say that HTML with CSS was once my subject back  in the days from my previous school. I really had a hard time understanding the topics that were discussed because of the manner, approach and the presentation of the lecture. I, as a student, will most likely grasp information and will learn fast if the lecture or lesson to be presented in my face will be visually entertaining.

When our instructor in ICS 120, Miss Marikit Valmadrid, told us that we’ll have to finish a course about HTML and CSS, I really hoped that the presentation of it will be pleasing to my eyes and will be very informative.  So as I started it, I was very delighted and very pleased by the tutorial. I can really say that I learned a lot. The manner and approach of the course was very concise, direct to the point, visually entertaining and most specially, it was very informative.

Some of the topics that was covered in the course was about the basics of HTML, inserting images and links to your page, creating tables and creating div’s just to name a few. When I was coding, there were times that I wasn’t  able to  achieve what’s being asked for by the computer in just one trial. There was a time I had to edit my code 3 times because I really can’t understand or I had forgotten the syntax. Nevertheless,  I never imagined that I could learn that lot just within 3 days.

There are other courses offered in Codecademy like PHP, JavaScript, JQuery, Ruby and Python. I really would recommend other aspiring I.T. students to grab the chance and try some of these courses offered online. As for me, I think I’ll study Python next.
