Code is the proverbial four-letter word for a small New England college's visual arts cohort. Web coding is a particular challenge to majors in the BFA in Graphic Design program. There is a divergent opinion between the the Visual Arts department, the Visual Arts Advisory board and primary full-time tenured faculty teaching the majority of the web class. A pedagogic revision in the introductory level web design course result from two factors. The first has been stated.

The author was researching and enrolled in to instructional designed-based MOOCs exploring flipped instruction.
