I decided that it was about time that I honed my HTML and CSS skills and I came across the excellent Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU) to help me do just that. P2PU is a grassroots open education project that organises learning outside of institutional walls and gives learners recognition for their achievements. Using the internet and educational materials openly available online, P2PU enables high-quality free education.

I signed up for the Webmaking 101 challenge to learn basic HTML. My first task was to set up a blog to chart my progess and to comment on the blogs of the other people studying the course. If you'd like to see how I'm getting on, head over to http://bluemackerel.wordpress.com.
