Pros: This course itself is very nice and have value information, keeping the same good teaching methoded from the others 2 course of HTML 5 X-Series. Anyone who work with HTML NEEDS to do this course, once that shows some good practice and share a lot of good experiences and codes. Against: It is not totally new informations, it is more an extension course from HTML 5 Part 1, rather than a new course itself: First because only the last week you can call as advanced, as the proposed level of the course, the others are more like HTML 5 Part 1 extension, something that an advanced developper don't need. Second, not all exams questions are cleary and focused, there are unupdated and bias questions, what is a little disappointing.

An exceptional learning experience .... The course is the logical extension of the HTML5 course part 1. The HTML5 know from the first part is recessed and there is much new to explore. The content of a course covers a large part of HTML5 and the quality of the content is extremely good. What the different makes but to other courses is the forum and the support in the forum. The practical exercises are all optional. But when you put your results into the forum, then you get super feedback from other students and also from the staff team. In addition you get support from the forum in case of problems. In particular, I would like to mention Prof. Michel Buffa, which provides personal feedback and support in the forum. Just unbelievable! As this package is price can not be beat. Is there potential for improvements? .... Yes, I wait for part 3 of the course series.

The course content is so flexible, even the links shared are helpful though I have found for those who are not accustomed to work on HTML environment, more tutorial link could be added. But more than this the provided tutorial window should have been spaced only for coding and be zoomed in,added following descriptions were not enough - it caused us feel deprivation of original coding knowledge.

Course content was very complete and i enjoyed of doing hands on exercises we were proposed to perform, Michel our teacher was very professional and was always encouraging us through reviewing the projects in forums and giving us feedback. David Nail was very helpful specially answering long question in the forum and giving us tips about the exercises. The course provider is excellent, specially when you think about how much you can learn in such a short period of time and almost for free, it was a very challenging course for me but i'm very proud for being able to finish this HTML5 Edx Series. Thank you very much you all!

I have managed web front-end and back-end development for many years, but it has been a long time since I was a hands-on developer, myself. I took the HTML5 series, culminating in this course as a refresher for my skills. A lot has changed in that time! The content of the course is comprehensive, the instructor is engaging and very active in form discussions and assisting students. edX is an excellent online learning platform - easy to use and no technical issues. I highly recommend this course, and the preceding courses in the series, to both beginners and practitioners who need to refresh their knowledge or who work with other languages and want to expand into HTML/CSS/Javascript.

This course is much more exciting than the introductory one(HTML5 Part 1: HTML5 Coding Essentials and Best Practices). The curriculum contains more advanced concepts like HTML5 multimedia, programming a small game that interacts with the mouse/keyboard and gamepads, file uploading and downloading, IndexedDB, web components, web workers and other APIs. Some of the notions I was already aware of, others are completely new to me. This combination of advanced HTML5 techniques and complementary APIs opens up a whole new world of possibilities.

Instructor was clearly very knowledgeable and presented topics well. Most of the course material was excellent as well. I was a little disappointed that web components didn't get more attention though.

I strongly recommend both parts of HTML5 Courses. Very complete content, graded examples, useful videos. Don't forget to review the Discussion Forum! It has many doubts solved by Professor Buffa and the team. Although this 2nd part is not so easy (for me), trying it with patience and don't giving up at the first difficulties you can get the goal!

Excellent instruction, content and presentation/format. I particularly liked the mix of instructor videos, JsBin code examples, and straight forward content. This course, Part 2: Advanced Techniques, could have easily been broken into 4 courses based on the amount of material covered. It's a large time investment but it's worth it. I recommend this course,

Coming from a strong Flex/ActionScript programming background and Web development back in 2005, I was looking for some information grouping all the new HTML5 features. There are already a lot pages on the web, documentation like w3schools, MDV etc., specifications and a mass of blogs for sure but it is rather painful to go through all this. They often come without concrete examples, frequently reflecting personal preferences and just don't give a good, structured overview of all the new tools, apis and features of HTML5. So this is what makes this course so great. It's just goes through all the new stuff. It includes and guides you to put into practice your ideas based on the examples learned in the course. The trainer/coach Michel Buffa is very motivated to help out in the discussion forum and gives good feedback every time someone shares his own examples. That's motivating and fun. I had a good time lecturing this course.

Second part has a lot of very interesting API. I liked very much that except of APIs that are already in the recommendation there were presented APIs that are in working draft state. It shows the development direction of HTML5. Thanks W3C, edx and all team for the great course and support!

It's a great course, just keep in mind you should be proficient in Javascript to make the most out of it. The teacher is great, and the material is carefully presented. Plus, it's a W3C course, so it's probably the best source available to learn HTML5.

Very informative! Only a basic understanding of HTML / JavaScript is presumed but they go in-depth, with external resources provided if you wish to go further. I think every front-end developer would benefit from the series.

I like the course. The videos were a mix of coding and talking, all accompanied by text synced to the video. Each week came with a quiz at the end. A few of the modules also had practice questions within. I would have liked more of those. The course was only four weeks long, but it covered a good amount. I didn't get to engage in the forum because I started it late and did the whole course in a few days.

Great for people experienced with HTML 4 / XHTML, looking to understand the new HTML5 elements and most-used APIs. Information is presented in a clear, concise and proven way. Not for complete beginners; you'll need at least a basic understanding of HTML, CSS and JavaScript to follow along.

The first part of HTML5 gave a lot of understand the new HTML features and I was tuned-up with the new tools available in HTML. The use of GitHub was very useful for getting all the code and interact with it. Mr. Buffa and his great team gave me an easy understand (no matter the advanced topics presented) with a lot of "get hands dirty". I'm expecting the same quality and experience of this wonderful MOOC.
