Do I need to know some programming to take this class?
When should I take the Web Development Series?
You can take this before or after taking Python and/or Java. Because HTML and CSS are not programming languages, they are much easier to learn and the results are immediate. The Web Dev 1 and Web Dev 2 courses are great for students transitioning from a visual programming environment like Scratch to one that requires much more typing and attention to syntax. Note that if your child completed Scratch and wants to focus on the programming aspects now, then Python might be the better choice. You can always come back later to take this series.
Who are the instructors for the web classes?
The class is instructor-led so we will guide you step-by-step. WhizKidz uses a learn-by-example approach. We show you simple examples and best practices. We encourage and foster hands-on experimentation. The class is project-based, meaning students will design and implement many creative and unique projects in all of our courses.
Is distance learning effective? Does it work?
It definitely works as we have seen successful results since March of 2020. We augment the distance learning experience with our own online coding platform for Python that provides the instructor with better visibility of the students' progress. By keeping the class size small, we can ensure that every student is able to get help in a timely manner.
What do I need at home to take this class?
You need an Internet connection and a computer. If you use our online coding platform for Web, instead of a computer, you can use a Chromebook or an iPad with a keyboard!
What if I sign up for the class and I want to quit?
You can get full credit on the remaining classes that you haven't taken.
What should I take after completing the Web Development Series?
You can take the Python or Java Programming Series. You can also take PHP or the Enterprise Java Series to develop the back end portion of a web application. This series covers the front end technology. By knowing both the front end and back end, this is known as a full stack developer.
