So, does anyone else take MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses)? My favorite website to use for this is Coursera (because it is free and well-structured) and I tend to stick to IT/programming related topics. IT/programming topics change frequently, so I find it is a great way to get an in-depth understanding of an emerging topic.

During the summer, I'll be taking a few that are more management focused. I looked at the course list for UT Austin's MBA program and found similar topics on Coursera. (:

I'd love to do some web design stuff. Started on the beginner HTML/CSS on Codeacademy.com but its so basic right now I'm bored with it and time. D: Waaah.

V, we should take an online course together! XD

Yes, please! That would be fun (: I know absolutely nothing about HTML/CSS, but I think the bare basics might come in handy for work. Not really sure, but wouldn't hurt to dip my toe in the water of that topic. 

So, I did some quick searching and found a free course or two, in addition to Codeacademy. I still need to finish my Python tutorial in Codeacademy, but I have only a few days left to finish another course on process mining

So, Udemy has some free courses for HTML and CSS, but double-check the price before committing. Some of their courses cost money, but some are free. 

Aquent Gymnasium has some free courses for HTML and CSS, Coding for Designers. They have a few other courses that I think are aimed at web developers and designers. I've never used them before, so I don't really know anything about them.

I usually use Coursera for everything, but I didn't find anything about HTML and CSS. I'm not familiar with the web design/development field, so you might cruise on Coursera and see if anything is relevant.

I want to learn more CSS and HTML with you!! I've been doing the code academy thing too, but it's kind of slow for me.

Yay! We can all learn CSS and HTML together. Check out those courses I mentioned or look for others on your own and tell me what you guys want to take together. I don't know CSS and HTML, so I can't judge whether or not the course would be good or match up with what you guys want to learn.

Right now I am taking R Programming on Coursera. This month I'll also be taking Usable Security and Algorithms, Part 1.
