It was a great experience taking the web based class and I would recommend this for people who can't travel. You get to remote into your own computer and all the scenarios are set up for you in advance.

I liked that the class was interactive and the instructor involved the participants. This made the class "hands-on" and more interesting.

I really enjoyed every moment with my instructor. She always made me feel welcome and like I was on track.

Most of the time, we were typing in our IDEs and loading our own code in our browsers. It was real hands-on practice, and that's great for my learning style. The instructor was always there and willing to jump in and help, but was also willing to let us struggle a bit to figure things out - which helps to cement the learning. Good class!
