Mark completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
The course starts with a short introduction on the topic of usability and user experience. A good idea, but not very well presented. Next is an intro to bootstrap. OK, but not deep enough for a course called "Responsive Web Design". The last two weeks cover JavaScript. Or more precisely: they cover a few JavaScript libraries.

To sum it up, the course was OK, but could use a revision. There are too many mistakes in the examples and sometimes, the instructors look a bit unprepared and confused.

In particular, the Tumblr log-in page the course lauds actually requires several clicks to reach from the index page and fe…

This was an exceptionally good course, and served as a good overview of designing websites to be responsive to different devices. The lectures are detailed in the how and why of the code used, and gives a good starting point to build your own websites from.
