This format has no set meeting time, which allows students to attend class at a time most convenient to them, yet still provides logically organized communication between class participants. Students can apply for the completion certificate after finishing the class.

Ratings
"The instructor pointed us to great resources and the interaction with other students really makes the class stand out." - Diane Garcia
"The class was very informative. I like that it used modern and up to date information. It was current and so was the book. Reading out of format order, jumping around was a bit challenging, but I love the web pages for backup and to see that things were as it were taught. Class interaction was good. We were able to dialogue with student and teacher. Almost like it is with my college online courses. I was impressed. This was good." - Priscilla Estes

"I liked this course. I learnt a lot through the different readings. In this way I have collected a lot of information about how to manage web content, but also about the web world. I think that is very usefull also read how the other students have done the assignment of each week and the answers of Stepanie. During the course you have the chance to learn in every moment something, from different point of view. I appreciated a lot how Stephanie has followed us and her advises. Thank you" - Paola Cuman
