I learnt in 10 mins what took me 5 hours of elapsed time on a traditional course at a uni.

Third– they made learning fun and addictive by using game theory.

5 years ago I paid $1200 for a java course at swinbourne university. It took me 1 hour to get there 2 hours of tutorial and 1 hour to get home. The course was difficult to follow and the tutor had poor English.
