What are your favorite websites that offer online courses on web design and development? (I am not talking about tutorials, but whole courses - mostly with video)
Some websites that I know about:
Code School: http://www.codeschool.com/
Code Academy: http://www.codecademy.com
Also there are websites with more general content that includes computer science and/or web dev courses:
Academic Earth: http://www.academicearth.org/
Video Lectures: http://videolectures.net/
Khan academy: http://www.khanacademy.org/
Any other good ones?
Important one is missing. That is, WebDesign.com This web designing course is run by iThemes, one of the leading wordpress theme selling company. The course is all about Wordpress theme development, plugin development. They also provide information on online marketing and how to be a good freelancer for those who wanted to become a freelancer developer.
I've written a review of the course on my blog.
W3schools.com is best website for online courses. Online Web Design & Web Development courses are best on the W3school. They provide all information about online marketing.
nonsense and rubbish
please see http://w3fools.com/
I like also w3schools.com
have a look at http://w3fools.com/
Why not try Sitepoints own learnable.com ? I signed up around Christmas time and I was impressed with the content quality. Also its worth noting that no one course will teach you everything you need to know, when It comes to web design and development hands on practice really is the key - this may sound like a cliche but after years of computer science courses I felt I learnt far more "on the job"
I have been checking it out today and have found it to be the best fit for almost all of my interests and it is very reasonably priced - I have put it on my "3 day rule applies" list - meaning before making a decision that will involve lots of time, commitment, or money I wait 3 days before making a final decision - this because I'm so impulsive LOL
I have bookmarked at least 15 courses that I wish to take so this will be a commitment of time, but for the yearly membership it is a super deal!
I think webdesign.com is the best for webdesign course.
Hey akona178, I went to the link and must say that i left pretty quick as there is not a search feature so I can see the courses that I'm interested in - thought that was a big oversight - or maybe I just missed it, the page is pretty busy, especially after a 12 hour work day by the monitor! I really like learnable's search feature, helped me to no end. Thanks for sharing the info

I see a lot of experienced web developers commenting about how to avoid W3Schools. I can understand why people with advanced knowledge would steer newcomers to the scene away from the site, but I think the benefit's it gives outweighs the errors it provides.
I understand people will come back here telling me that if I want to learn web development properly I should devote the time and effort into reading and understanding from reputable resources. However, as this is only a hobby for me, and I'm juggling a new born with a full time job and still learning, the W3Schools site will continue to be an invaluable source,
Any thoughts or would you recommend steering clear of this site at all costs and knowledge levels?
ask yourself, even as a hobbyist, whether validation of your code matters
that should pretty well determine how much of the w3schools site you want to use
It seems that every day something new is being released onto the market; it can be impossible to try and stay up to date with everything that's going on. Taking a short course can give you the chance to play a bit of catch up.
I just have go through these few sites which you have mentioned on this thread.
Code Academy: http://www.codecademy.com
I really love to study on these sites. The process is so simple to understand and to carry.
For Web design tips and help I suggest webydo.com - a Professional platform, made by designers for designers.
