How about the coursera web dev course? I'd recommend doing all of the courses, and if you don't wanna get the cert, they are free ;)

Hey there. What you're talking about is basically informaton system design and yes, there are whole BA and masters' degrees dedicated to that. So before you rush into this idea, mortgage out your house, and quit your job saying 'see ya, b*tches, I'm gonna make my own learning platform with booze and hookers', I'd recommend take a step back and breathe :))
Ok, joking aside. I took the Responsive Web Development coursera specialization and they go over the basics of html, css, and then focus on MeteorJS. In my humble opinion, depending on your usecase, you could create your whole platform in MeteorJS (I mean, could you create your own Lynda in Meteor? Nope. Could you create your platform for like couple hundred concurrent people at the peak time? I think absolutely yea).
The side effect is that you'll:
a) Start out your html, css, and JS journey
b) Do both server-side and client-side programming
c) Get results fast (meteorJS is basically a prototyping platform as far as I understand it)
d) Get some idea of how stuff works.
When you finish all the courses in the specialization, which can be done for free if you don't care about the cert, you can think about what's next. Check in here for some more advice if you require more pointers.
That would be just my humble advice. Hope this helps!

I just finished in a 4 week course within 3 days of my trial. Can I still get the certificate by applying for financial aid?
I just powered through the first course in the Responsive Web Development specialization with a trial before realizing there's an option to apply for financial aid. I'm almost done and awaiting my grading, but does this mean I won't get a certificate? I tried to make use of my trial but apparently that was a bad idea.
Can I still apply for financial aid even after finishing a course to get a certificate, or am I still able to get one even with the trial? Thanks.

What do you guys think of this $474 Coursera Web Development Specialisation program?
I am looking to start a website I have an idea for for Social Enterprises to collaborate, share information and promote themselves.
I know pretty much nothing about web development, I can barely make my way round wordpress.
I'm not in a massive rush to start the website and Im pretty strapped for cash so perhaps the best option for starting it would be learning the basics myself until I can get a proper developer on board.
I'm a pretty fast learner and pretty creative so I think if I have the right instruction I should be able to pick it up.
I've found this Coursera specialisation program lasting until the end of Decemeber https://www.coursera.org/specializations/website-development. Its a bunch of courses leading up to you developing a web app.
What do you guys think of the course based on the website's description, would it be worth my $474 and time?
Any advice would be very appreciated! It starts soon!
Many thanks, Jamie

What is the best website design specialization?
It seems that the London one will give me more and some better skills, but it's hard to really weigh the two just by the specialization descriptions. Does anyone have experience with these? I'd like to become as skilled as I can with through the specialization, though I understand that I won't be an expert and more experience will be required. Which one will provide a better foundation for me to further my sills after I'm done with it?

Anyone done the computer science specialization courses (usually 4 course or 5 course program). I like structured learning to help keep me on track and push me to finish quicker. So is their $63 a month specialization program worth it?
More specifically something like this https://www.coursera.org/specializations/website-development?utm_medium=email&utm_source=marketing&utm_campaign=DrrhAA9TEee5KSXR2XdshQ
I am currently on the intermediate stages of freecodecamp but considering jumping to this to kind of "force" me to finish quicker, than going at a leisurely pace.
anyone the paid option at coursera before?
