Mobile Web Developer

The ever-increasing use of smartphones worldwide has created a great demand for mobile web developers. Smartphones include a mobile browser that is similar to the traditional desktop browser, enabling millions of mobile users to browse the web on their devices instead of a traditional computer. With more and more users accessing websites using mobile devices, businesses and organizations must adjust their websites to improve mobile experience. Although most mobile browsers can display a scaled version of a traditional website, mobile-friendly websites make it much easier for users to browse, find the information they need, and make purchases. This is especially important for e-commerce and consumer-focused websites and will become more important as more smartphone users consult their phones to browse content, buy products, and access online services.

These changes are expected to continue to drive growth in markets such as mobile web development and mobile app development for years to come. You can become a mobile web developer, and, in this course, you’ll learn the latest technologies to prepare you for a career.

How long does it take to complete a program?
This program is self-paced and open enrollment, so you can start and finish at your own pace. Upon registering, you're given twelve (12) months to complete this program.
Do I have to buy additional materials? 

All the materials you'll need are included, and their cost will be covered by your tuition. ed2go will ship all materials ground service upon enrollment.

Can I get financial assistance?

ed2go courses are non-credit courses, so they do not qualify for federal aid. In some states, vocational rehab or workforce development boards will pay for qualified students to take our courses. Additionally, some students may qualify for financial assistance when they enroll, if they meet certain requirements.

What happens when I complete the program?
Upon successful completion of the program, you will be awarded a certificate of completion.
Am I guaranteed a job?

What skills will I gain by successfully completing this program?

What is a typical day like for a web developer?

Web developers work both independently and with others on a variety of day-to-day tasks and projects in which coding, problem-solving, and attention to detail are key. Typically, web developers work in a traditional in-person office setting, though some work remotely, with Monday through Friday work schedules. Extra hours may be needed or required. Some web developers are contract, freelance, or self-employed and set their own hours but typically are available during their clients’ office hours, potentially working in-person in their clients’ offices. The specifics really depend on the company or institution’s size, work culture, and objectives.

What if I don't have enough time to complete my program within the time frame provided?

The time allotted to complete your program has been calculated based on the number of course hours. If after a concerted effort, you are still unable to complete your program on time, your Student Advisor will help you work out a suitable completion date.
