Sorry to hear it didn't work out for you, but we'd love to learn more about 1) how to structure the MOOC to engage learners like you and 2) how to improve the assignments or tools to meet your interests.
We're also not just caring about code, but broader web literacies like collaboration and openness. Maybe the first wees didn't reflect that enough.
In any case, thanks for trying out #teachtheweb
and hope you keep learning and making online!
