multiple practice quizzes, each taking ~5 minutes to complete
This course is designed to build on top of the material delivered in the previous two courses in this specialisation. Therefore, we recommend that if you find this course too technically challenging that you first complete the previous courses before re-commencing this one. Specifically, we expect you to be able to code basic HTML, CSS and Javascript before you take this course.
Participation in or completion of this online course will not confer academic credit for University of London programmes.
