    How Would You Give Away $100,000?

    Social entrepreneur, philanthropist, and best-selling author Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen—in partnership with Stanford University and Coursera - has launched Giving 2.0: The MOOC, a MOOC enabling students to become more effective philanthropists by applying research and strategic thinking to giving.

    Enrolled students will be allocated up to $100,000 to give to the non-profits they select, generously provided by The Learning By Giving Foundation.

    Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen says, "Changing individual philanthropic learning on this scale has never previously been possible. This MOOC will create a new community of givers."

    Can anyone recommend a course that teaches HTML and CSS from the basics to a relatively detailed level ?

    Jaffa Member


    I'd recommend the Udacity one. It'll teach you the basics, then it's up to you to put what you've learnt into practice which will deepen your knowledge.
