Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How much should I know beforehand? The course is aimed at people who know how to use a computer, but don't know how to create a webpage. As long as you are familiar with using your web browser, familiar with using and checking your email, saving documents or editing word documents then you should be good to go.

Is there a target age range? It really depends on how much you know, but we'll be assuming everyone is 12-70 years old.
