Workplace is the online portal used for students this is a service provided by Facebook. When you sign up they will give you login details. Like professional Facebook
-Community of students on workplace for questions ranging from course work, career advice, help, jobs
-Mentorship you will be allocated a dedicated mentor who you will meet once per week to discuss your goals, achievements. Great for motivation.
-Cheaper you will gain a diploma(EQF 6 non-credit) cost less than most bootcamps
-Flexible you only study as much as you want to
-Job guarantee after you complete your path you should find a job within 6 months or money back (cost covering 12 months)
-New courses added frequently
-Support is provided through phone and email if required
-online without deadlines
-Allows students to pause membership (will not charge until you come back)
-Projects can be extremely difficult resulting in students giving up due to learning curve (Not really OC fault)
-No dedicated staff members on workplace for questions(Staff do use workplace just no dedicated staff to a particular path)
The platform is easy to use and all path course work is easily accessible, no issue with this. Once you sign up your are allocate a mentor who will assist you during your path keep you on track and provide guidance when you feel stuck. Meetings are 1 hour over google hangouts once per week. If your not satisfied with your mentor changing is an option.
I usually post my questions on the workplace normally students will reply with resources and tips sometimes mentors who are also using the platform will reply with their guidance. I have enjoyed knowing that I am not the only one on this path and other students are in the same position this creates a atmosphere everyone is equal.

"so far, so good"
Several futile attempts to learn front-end programming on my own made me to consider OC Front-End path and the learning system they offer.
At first I was a bit sceptical at thought of having a personal mentor.
I started on OC path in March 2018, made a... Read More
"Personal, flexible, affordable"
I came to OpenClassrooms after realizing that a full time computer science degree wasn't something I couldn't pursue alongside a part-time job. I studied the frontend developer path which is not only flexible, as it is self-paced, but also affordable.... Read More
I accredit much of my success to the outstanding team at OpenClassrooms. You are assigned a mentor with whom you have weekly mentoring sessions of one hour each. Additionally there is a student success team to help you out with any problems. For example: If you for some reason wish to switch your mentor, that can be done without a problem. I have studied another degree online before and I can say from experience that the mentor is what sets this course apart. You always have someone to guide you through problems, to assist you and to supply you with additional resources for succeeding.
Don't get me wrong, there's a lot expected from you and will sometimes have to branch out and use additional resources to complete the projects, but in my opinion this is something that can be expected of someone working in an industry that is constantly evolving. However, you are never alone in this process, and like I said, if you get stuck, your mentor and the team are there to help you and point you in the right direction.
All in all I can 100% recommend this course, even if you have no prior experience with programming. Before signing up with OpenClassrooms I completed a short introductory course to computer science to see if I enjoyed it. The courses alongside my mentors guidance taught me everything from scratch. If you are wondering about signing up yourself, all you need to bring in my opinion, is the motivation and will to learn and the resilience to not get discouraged when things get tough.

"Very student oriented"
I am very satisfied with OpenClassrooms.
For each project, a student receives one or multiple suggested courses, and upon finishing those, they will be 100% prepared for the project itself.
The mentors have a great role in supporting the students in their... Read More
