Welcome to XML Data. This is a self-paced course, so you are welcome to work through the content at your leisure. The main materials are found under Courseware. Suggested textbook supplementary readings and other pointers are found under Readings, and information about software you might want to try out (though it's not required) is found under Software Guide. Please take the pre-course survey, and make sure to check out the Discussion Forum and Wiki.
Once you've completed all of the standalone quizzes and/or interactive exercises with a score of 90% or more, you will be able to generate a Statement of Accomplishment. Visit the Course Completion section under Courseware for instructions. Note that quizzes inside videos and interactive exercise sets labeled "Extras" are for practice only and don't count toward your score.
This mini-course is part of a series on the general topic of Databases. Please visit the home page to learn more about the entire series, and to access the other mini-courses.
