HTML5 was developed to solve compatibility problems that affect the current standard, HTML4. One of the biggest differences between HTML5 and previous versions of the standard is that older versions of HTML require proprietary plugins and APIs. (This is why a Web page that was built and tested in one browser may not load correctly in another browser.) HTML5 provides one common interface to make loading elements easier. For example, there is no need to install a Flash plugin in HTML5 because the element will run by itself.

One of the design goals for HTML5 is to support for multimedia on mobile devices. New syntactic features were introduced to support this, such as video, audio and canvas tags. HTML5 also introduces new features which can really change the way users interact with documents including:

  • New parsing rules for enhanced flexibility
  • New attributes
  • Elimination of outmoded or redundant attributes
  • Drag and drop capabilities from one HTML5 document to another
  • Offline editing
  • Messaging enhancements
  • Detailed rules for parsing
  • MIME and protocol handler registration
  • A common standard for storing data in SQL databases (Web SQL)


Many of our long-form courses are geared toward beginners and no prior knowledge of a subject is required. Additionally, these courses often feature pre-work assignments to get you up to speed with essential concepts and tools. Inevitably, our courses attract students with a wide variety of backgrounds and expertise, so we make sure to have instructional associates, office hours, and additional help available as needed to provide personalized feedback and support.
It varies by course and by person, but, as a part-time student, be prepared to work hard and dedicate several hours outside of the classroom each week to review course material and complete homework assignments. Our full-time Immersive students also devote additional time to portfolio projects, networking events with hiring partners, career services support, and more. Either way, our courses are designed to be rigorous and intensive, but, most of all, incredibly rewarding!
A letter of completion is just the beginning. After graduation, our alumni become part of a global community whose members are invested in one another’s success. We also provide the tools they need to foster lifelong learning and pursue work they love. Our graduates gain access to a suite of digital tools, development programs, passes and packages to premiere events, and more.
