W3C’s training activities have reached a significant milestone: one million enrollments in their MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) dedicated to front-end Web development!

This achievement is particularly significant as W3C’s catalogue is composed of six courses only of all entry levels,  beginner, intermediate and expert:

  • HTML5 and CSS Fundamentals
  • HTML5 Coding Essentials and Best Practices
  • HTML5 Apps and Games
  • CSS Basics
  • JavaScript Introduction
  • Introduction to Web Accessibility.

A W3C Front-End Web Developer program delivers certificates of HTML5, CSS and JavaScript that people can showcase on their LinkedIn profile and/or their resume.

During the pandemic in 2020, interest in  online education and demand in programming skills has increased. 30 years after its inception, the Web remains the key and most ubiquitous digital platform that enables communications, commerce, education, etc. the world over.

W3C accomplishes its mission by developing Web standards and ensuring their broadest adoption. Training people to learn Web technologies directly from W3C is a key enabler of that goal. This is why W3Cx with edX was created in 2015, with the first HTML5 course launched. It was an instant success with nearly 90.000 students from all over the world.

The W3Cx MOOCs let the learners practice, create and innovate whilebuilding fun projects. With the advent of machine learning, smart things and more, there is an unexplored world of future Web applications and usages to create and play with.
