You mentioned that one should be excellent in jQuery, Educator does not offer jQuery course. Is there another place I can learn jQuery
By Anthony ReynoldsDecember 2, 2012
I understand however it wouldnt pass the variable over to the php so i have recoded my href so it will allow for me to get a full page refresh. thank you for all of your help i have really learned so very much from these classes.
By Elwin sylvesterSeptember 4, 2012
This is funny. I've done some JQuery stuff and watched a couple of tuts but I've never seen this live stuff. So, I wanna thank you.

Amazing! Stretegic planning is to business what ajax is to programming, no doubt.
By Jorge GuerreroAugust 13, 2012
Nice coding. You're really good, Prof. Lei. However, the Javascript class offered on educator is not focused on AJAX. They should offer a jQuery class for more coherence between courses.
