- Course material fragmented and largely text-driven. - Numerous typos - My time commitment when trying to complete all activities and material averaged 10-12 hours a week for me as a beginner. - Lost most of what I learned between weeks due to pace. Course admonishes practice but very difficult to do if you are trying to complete the course and have a life, job, etc. otherwise. - Exams are tricky and often dig into nuances that were barely touched in the content - especially troubled by multi-part questions that give no credit for let's say getting 5 out of 6 answers on a complicated CSS code review correct. Miss one lose all 5 points. The hints are cryptic and digging back through the material for answers can be very time-consuming. - XDK marketing pretty obvious - While challenging and frustrating it did help me learn the basics I wanted to learn. - Not sure I would recommend to a beginner.

I think the course is really good, but for the lessons in week 4 and 5 I think it would be better to have more videos than having only text, bogh parts need to be explained while we are working on the code.

Not a course I would recommend taking here on edX. I've taken this same course in person both as a child and as a college student, and it was exciting and inspiring. You cannot expect the same from this. It's not that the subject matter is bad, but the way the course is laid out (predominantly text with little videos) does not optimize it for as many students as is possible. Additionally, as others have said, it really seems like a gigantic ad for Intel XDK. This, however, did not bother me as much as the lack of audio/visual content did.

This course is utter garbage with multiple quirks in questions. It’s also an advertisement for Intel XDK. Do not take.

Its a great start for beginner's and explains alot of the html5 elements in detail. But I would of preferred instead of only questions for the assignments there can be actual projects to submit because at the end of the day its best to produce a project because employers are not looking for questions but more on practicable ability, also would have preferred more video lectures...with that said the course is still a very decent course and I appreciate all the hard work the lecturers put in developing this course.

this course is really great, i learned a lot from this than other tutorials. just keep in mind, this is an INTRO to html5, but if you will also read recommended links for other infos, Do Sample codes,and DO ALL Activities, you will learn a lot than just reading and saying you already know the topics being presented. if you are already well-versed in html, then what are you doing here in Intro to html5? just wait and go straight ahead to html5 part1 and part2. with regards to there preferred ide, i.e. intel xdk... i found it great, this ide is used by professionals who want to deploy there web apps.. fyi, i use Atom(my preferred editor) via gitbash, but i also like intel xdk.

Full of textual content instead of videos (which is a great time-saver; I haven’t watched any of the videos). However, it focuses on one specific product (Intel XDK), which makes the entire course feel like an advertisement for that. Some exercises could also use some improving. Moreover, the course project, a web page (not a web app!) with recipes is a complete waste of time with no hints, instructions etc.

The content could have been more structured hierarchically, but overall I'm satisfied with and enjoying it, maybe because I was already familiar with the subject. That's to say, students who are totally new to it might get a little confused at some points throughout the process.

It is now over 3 years that discovered edX. Since then I have taken a fair bit of courses and already learned a lot. As edX courses go this is in my opinion one of the worst I have taken. After week two I have unenrolled from this course. There is no clear line. It is chaotic, inconsistent, not well designed and introduces too many software tools, programs and concepts in a random way, leaving the student to figure out how to use them to best effect. All this bothers me as this is an introductory course. All the time the student is told to look this up or check that out at some link or another. Of and by itself this is a good teaching technique but not when someone is just starting out on a suject. Since so many items are introduced without proper explanation to the, supposedly novice, student all this is very overwhelming. My personal experience. Way back in 1997-8 I build a website for my own company. Things were simpler then and... It is now over 3 years that discovered edX.

Way back in 1997-8 I build a website for my own company. Things were simpler then and a lot has changed. Expecting a typical edX course I was very excited to take this course. But excitement turned to disappointment for all the reasons mentioned above. After 9 hours I felt I knew less about HTML than when I started out. By making a silly mistake I accidentally found a website that teaches the same subject, HTML5, CSS and JScript. Yet because they are consistent, introduce one subject at a time I was able to understand the logic behind it all and have a nice looking web page up within two hours. Maybe this might be your cup of tea, but I was not impressed and feel the need to repeat that as this course now stands it is no good as an introduction to HTML 5.
