Face to Face Instruction
We are asked frequently why we chose to make some courses mandatory Face-to-Face Instruction? The simple answer is for most it is simply more effective. Despite all the advances of online learning the best way to learn a craft is still by being in the same room as a professional. On campus, students have their classmates, learning centers, instructors' office hours, and tutors to support and help them with their various learning needs. With these resources its easier to clarify and reinforce the material. Also while learning in person helps to grow your social network which becomes crucial when hunting for your first job in the industry.
We have carefully crafted out curriculum based on years of professional development, previous courses, and extensive market research to ensure that our students learn the technologies and methodologies necessary to start building impressive, beautiful web applications that adhere to today's workforce standards.
