Our courses typically contain 10-50 video lessons; we currently cover 100 unique web/mobile products and strategies to use them best.

About half of our coursework can be watched for free. For more advanced courses, we charge $9/month or $99/year for unlimited access to current and new coursework we create every week. We deliver coursework via our social learning platform, which is also proudly produced in our NYC-based office.
