Blended Learning

Blended Learning means e-learning combined with traditional classroom methods and independent study to create a new, hybrid teaching methodology. This model mix and match the best parts of online learning with elements from traditional education and represents a fundamental change in the way coaches and students approach the learning experience.

This means that apart from an online curriculum and course materials that include text, video, quizzes and assignments, you'll get real coach support and become a part of a virtual cohort with other students. You'll never have to code alone!

The coaches from Craft Academy will be with you along the way, hosting demos, interactive programming sessions and giving support. We will motivate you, push you and inspire you.
