W3Schools presents thousands of code examples. By using the online editor provided, readers can edit the examples and execute the code experimentally.
W3Schools created a YouTube channel on the 26th August 2014. Videos on the channel have had approximately 306,000 views as of February 2016. The channel currently has 25 videos which are based on the styling language: CSS; videos include text, images and border tutorials. W3Schools also respond to YouTube comments on their videos.
An unaffiliated site, W3Fools, was created to criticize W3Schools and as a message for experienced web designers to not use W3Schools. W3Fools acknowledges that W3Schools is good for beginners, saying "W3Schools has structured tutorials and playgrounds that offer a decent learning experience", but for more advanced levels it recommends using resources such as the Mozilla Developer Network and the W3C-supported Web Platform Docs.
