The Web Academy
The Web Academy started as a charity service offering free online web design classes to anyone interested in learning. As we have evolved, we realized that other organizations such as MIT, Stanford, Code Academy and others have more resources and better free curriculum than we ever had. This is great for those mentioned programs. However, the drop out rate for students enrolled in some of those programs is abnormally high.
We’ve seen drop out rates as high as 90%!
To address this high drop out rate problem , we have created Accountability-Based Training. With Accountability-Based Training, each student is paired with a student of equal skills in order to hold each other accountable. Each student is a given a road map of courses and recommended time line to completion. Weekly check-ins with The Web Academy are required and each partner is required to check-in with each other at least twice per week.
