We’re excited to be working with RefactorU, a web development school, to provide online learning experiences with 1:1 mentorship powered by Codementor. The joint offering combines RefactorU’s proven, real-world curriculum and content with Codementor’s global network of developers and technology experts.
The joint Codementor-RefactorU offering is available in two tiers. The first called “Retain” is $250 per month and includes RefactorU’s content and exercises, plus up to 4 hours of one-on-one time with a Codementor expert mentor. “Reinvent” includes the same content and exercises as “Retain”, plus several additional benefits (monthly webinars, live-streaming classroom access, etc.) and includes up to 16 hours per month with a Codementor expert. Both tiers come with a 10-day free trial and learners may cancel at anytime.
An aspiring developer who tries to learn with tools found online often faces challenges that online-only resources like Codecademy, Code School, etc., do not effectively address, namely a lack of personal accountability and access to live, expert mentors. Attrition rates of MOOCs are as high as 90%. At RefactorU, approximately 95% of graduates are employed as developers within three months of finishing the full-stack web application development bootcamp, with an attrition rate of less than 5%. This is because of a combination of unique classroom learning structures, individual and peer accountability, and immediate access to expert instructors and facilitators.
