What students said about this course

Learnt a lot!

Eugene Offeh

I’ve never been thought with an online platform before but I can boldly say the Job factory teaches students a lot. It’s similar to a physical interaction between the student and the lecturer. It’s an awesome experience

The Technological World

Rateesh Bhagwanani

During these sessions, I experienced the concept of what the technological world is and how it interprets and interacts with the human environment.

Great Experience

Abigail Ndeogo

I'm having a great experience as I walk through this course. I'll definitely recommend it because it gives detailed explanation for one to understand.

Technology Simplified

Benjamin Kofi Nyarko

I used to perceive Programming as an abstract course and had difficulty studying it on my own. The interactive class brought all I have learnt into perspective and simplified the course for me. I am hoping things I have learnt will help make my work easy and flexible.
