This course uses animated explainer videos to get the key information across in a way that’s accessible and (hopefully) not boring.

We know with IT subjects, things can get a bit dry and you can switch off. That’s why the videos are in digestible chunks, interspersed with clickthroughs and activities to keep you awake.

There’s also a question section at the end to help the learning stick, as well as blended learning materials like workbooks and infographics to take the learning offline.
