@aimeejulia, @bobbyc, @Krate2016:
This is a cohort that I presented to the fCC forum in case others are also interested in working through the beta curriculum sections and projects with deadlines. I’m planning to continue moving forward through the beta curriculum. That said, one reason I’m doing this via the public forum system is because I want others to be able to copy what they need if they want to propose their own cohort.
I don’t have any connection to any of the people working on the beta curriculum or to fCC in any official way.
Others have mentioned having difficulty with the beta curriculum, similar to what you both have described. Unfortunately, there’s not much I (or anyone else in the cohort) can do to help with that. You may find some things to try in the comments above, but it’s not guaranteed to work for you.
You may want to try the beta curriculum in different browsers until one of them works. I know for me, the beta curriculum is working in the latest versions of Chromium and Firefox Quantum on a Linux desktop. I haven’t tested it in Safari, Edge, IE, Opera or other browsers.
The forum system and the fCC current and beta curriculums are three separate systems. They don’t necessarily link back and forth to one another.
I recommend going through the beta curriculum from the beginning even if one has already completed the current curriculum. I think there’s a lot of useful newer information in the beta curriculum that one may not have been exposed to in the current curriculum. Also, if one previously completed some of the current curriculum projects, I recommend refactoring those projects for the cohort by only using best practices (including accessibility) and limiting oneself to HTML5 and CSS3.
Hope that helps!
