He shared his insights, describing W3Schools as a leading global platform for learning web development and coding. Let’s explore Carl Magnus perspective and the rich educational tools that W3Schools offers.

Carl Magnus, what are the opportunities for using W3Schools?

W3Schools’ resources can easily be used by teachers tilized as a supplement to an existing curriculum. The learning materials, or its tutorials, practice exercises, quizzes, and interactive “Try-It-Yourself” code example sections, and HTML video tutorials can also be used as a self-paced learning curriculum with detailed direct learning content for progress tracking.
