How It Works

Take everything you know about online courses and throw it away. Applying the best of both worlds, this program blends the structured familiarity of in-person classes with the ease and convenience of virtual learning, delivering you the tools and resources you need to succeed. Experience high-quality content, engaging group discussions and develop relevant, applicable skills from the moment you log in.






Instead of being graded on learning theories and memorizing formulas, this course will be open-world, where you can use all the resources around you to solve real problems.

Skill Builders and Portfolio Projects will help you apply relevant concepts to real data sets and demonstrate your skills to potential employers.

Whether you prefer to work at your desk at 2 PM or on your couch at 2 AM, our 100% online program gives you the flexibility to learn your way, every day. 

Each week, you’ll complete online modules containing Hollywood-produced Video Lectures and tangible exercises, set to a schedule that works best for you.

You're going to feel confident and fully supported every step of the way.

If a specific assignment has you stumped, reach out to our 1:1 on-demand Tutoring Center or attend weekly group Study Halls! Need help catching up or have questions? Your dedicated Program Advisor is here to be your personal success coach.

Once you’ve tackled the modules on your own, meet with your peers twice a week in LiveLab, a virtual classroom conducted over Zoom.

During these sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to work with your peers and instructor to deepen your understanding and get additional hands-on practice. 

What You'll Learn

Each module in this course is designed to make you career-ready. Using relevant case studies and a learn-by-doing approach, you'll build real websites, functioning web apps, and even your own portfolio site.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It ...

I have learned so much and there are no prerequisites — anyone can learn from this course.

SOPHOMORE | Info. Technology

The support in this course is so amazing. You can take this course even when you are super busy with life.


With tech becoming a huge part of all businesses, I feel this is a great class to take.

JUNIOR | Business Admin

This was such a phenomenally helpful course for me: It was so incredibly illuminating, and I'm not sure I can really narrow down what I liked most.

ALUM | Computer Science

I learned information that will help me in the workforce one day, something I've never learned in a regular college course.

SENIOR | Marketing

The learning approach was unlike most other online courses I've taken, and delightfully so! This is how it should be done.

Rather than starting your courses in theory, your courses will start with a focus on real world application, using tools that remove complexity. These courses are not just “open note”; they are “open everything”, just like the real world.

This course will require you to have access to a computer, stable high-speed internet, and a webcam. We highly recommend utilizing headphones with an integrated microphone as well to ensure the best experience.
