Explore the Virtual Classroom

Our virtual classroom lets you interact with the instructor and other students in real-time.

Joining the classroom is as simple as it gets – no software downloads, nothing to install on your computer. Everything runs directly from your browser window.

The webcam and screenshare broadcast is one-way, meaning only the instructor shares his video/audio. This ensures the privacy of our students and camera-shy participants.

The instructor’s live webcam lets you put a face to the name, streaming in high-definition.
Follow the instructor’s screenshare as they write code in real-time, present slides, and more.
Ask questions and get immediate answers – this is live training at its best. Students upvote / downvote questions, so the teacher can prioritize what’s most important.
Get to know the other students in the classroom and communicate with the instructor.

Meet Your Instructor

Mike Riethmuller

Mike is an independent web developer from Australia who has worked on some of Australia’s largest websites as well as some of the smallest community sites.

When he’s not building sites or blogging, he likes to experiment with code. He loves learning new things and finding techniques that challenge what we think is best practice, and when he’s not exploring the digital landscape, he likes to explore the world.

Currently, he's trying to find a way to do both of those things at the same time.
