All right, everybody. This is going to be my Team Treehouse review of the Team Treehouse website dashboard and interface and whatnot. What I’m going to be doing with this video is I’m going to show you guys how their website works.

Once you’re signed into the program and you’ve got your account made, I’m going to show you guys what you can do. The user interface, different courses you can take, and all that kind of stuff here. This is the prime goal of this video.

Right here I’m logged in. I’m in Account. I have the pro account, or whatever the account is, the highest paid one, where you get access to all the bonus lectures and all that.

Right here, I’m logged into my dashboard. Up here we can see this little number right here is my profile. I believe this is all my points for the courses.

When you go through the courses and you complete lectures and you complete tests and all that, you get a point system where it shows how many courses you’ve gone through and whatnot. It’s pretty cool. I really like it.

It’s pretty neat. Kind of encourages people to complete your courses and whatnot, which is really, really good.

In this section here we have my profile info, enrollment, billing history, all that kind of stuff, referral systems if you’re for the Team Treehouse affiliate program.

Over here we have our resume progress, so if I click this button here I can watch the last lessons I was watching. Up here we have the announcement bell, which tells you all the new courses that are coming up on Team Treehouse.

It’s pretty cool. If you don’t log in for a week, there’s going to be a lot of notifications here, which is pretty neat. It proves right here that they’re doing a lot of different courses and there’s a lot of material on this website which makes Team Treehouse a really, really good resource for learning anything to do with web development or just in general web design.

Underneath that, we have our tracks. In the tracks section we can see all the different courses. Basically, what a track is is a track is like a giant course that takes all existing courses and funnels it into one thing. If we click on the Front End Web Development track, once it decides to load here we can see that we have all the individual courses.

How To Make a Website is its own course. CSS Basics is its own course. JavaScript Basics is its own course, but it’s organized together so that if you wanted to be a front end web developer that this would be a great way to get started.

I have watched it myself. It’s really, really good because if we click on How To Make a Website here, we will be taken to the actual course of how to make a website and we can see all the different lessons. There’s a lot of content here. This is just the one course on how to make a website. We can see Beginning HTML and CSS, HTML first.

If we open these up we can see all the different lessons here. I’m just going to click on one just to show you guys the interface for watching videos and whatnot.

This is an actual lesson. Let me go back here. There we go. Click on an actual video here. I’m going to mute that so that you guys can’t hear that. This is what the interface is for watching the videos. We have a rewind video for 10 seconds, we have the volume.

There’s English subtitles so if you’re watching without volume, or let’s say you just for some reason you can’t make out what the instructor is saying, you can watch the subtitles here on the bottom, which is pretty cool. We can go full screen.

We have a launch workspace, which is basically like their own workspace where you can follow along with the videos and stuff like that. For example, for a lot of coding videos and stuff like that, you’ll be doing publishing things online and stuff like that and you’ll need a website to show it.

The workspace is an easy way for you to write code and then preview it really fast. It’s a great way to … You see we have our folder of our website, our index to HTML, and we can preview it after we click View here. That’s not what I want. Preview Workspace. Now, if we go to Preview Workspace, you can see what you’re writing there.

It’s a great way if you guys don’t have a website and you just want to follow along and get coding up and running and whatnot.

If we move onwards, we can go to the library, which is like the tracks, but it’s all the individual lessons. You can see the How To Make a Website course is right here, but it’s not in the Front End Web Development track. It’s just by itself.

This is where you see all the different courses Team Treehouse has. There’s a lot of different courses. We can see all the different categories here, Android, Business, CSS, Design, Development. We’re going to click on one.

Let’s click on WordPress here. We can see all the different WordPress courses we have, which is quite a bit here. There’s a lot, and there’s a lot of new ones coming out. This is just one section, guys. There’s so much material on Team Treehouse.

For anybody who wants to learn web development or just really learn a lot more, you can gain a lot more skills on this website. It’s really, really great. We can organize our courses by newest, difficulty type, and alphabetical. We can go workshop, conference, and bonus series, and all the different topics we have as well, which is a lot.

Moving onwards, we can see that Team Treehouse has a nice forum. Each individual lesson will have a discussion board, so as you’re watching your lessons and you have a question you can actually post it and it’ll be stickied to that actual video so someone can answer your response and they’ll know exactly what you’re talking about when you answer that question.

That’s pretty cool. There’s generic topics that you can write to. For example, if you have a HTML question you can post in the HTML section. The forums are pretty cool. There’s a lot of people on here, and you’ll usually get help for most questions that you ask.

Again, workspace is great here. We got our account settings at the bottom here. That’s pretty much it. Oh, I don’t want you guys to actually see my information there. That’s pretty much it for the Team Treehouse. It’s a great system. It’s a great service.

I highly recommend you guys sign up. I’m going to log out here to show you guys the main website, and we’re going to go over the pricing really quickly just to give you guys a quick overview of that if you missed the blog post I did earlier about my Team Treehouse review.

The basic plan is $25 a month with all access to all the projects and everything. The pro plan is pretty much the same. The only different is that you get help. Actually, let’s see here. We can watch talks from industry leaders and enjoy exclusive bonus content. The pro plan you get a little bit extra bonus content.

I noticed that they have a little behind the scenes and one-on-one work with some of the instructors and all that. It’s not a big difference.

You can easily get by on the basic plan, but for an extra $25, it’s definitely worth it to hit the pro plan, especially if you’re really serious about getting into anything to do with the web and web development and design, all that kind of stuff. I would highly recommend it. Team Treehouse has a lot on it, and it’s not just for web developers. I highly recommend you check it out.

I believe they have a free … We can find the actual website.

They did have a free trial going on where you get a free month, but I’m not sure if they still have that. Oh, start your 14 free trial. It’s right here. I believe you put in your information and stuff like that and after you edit your information they charge you.

If you want to unsubscribe before the 14th day, you would do so and you wouldn’t get charged. It’s definitely worth checking out. I would highly recommend you just at least look into it and check it out. If you guys want to check out Team Treehouse, check out the link in the description of this video.
