Flash Question

Hey Guys!

I'm a student preparing to enter my graduate program at Depaul University to study Human Computer Interaction. I'm looking to get a jumpstart on coding and have a question. A significant amount of my learning is done on my Google Chromebook. Does anyone have any web-based solutions to help me practice the exercises and get a solid grasp on the concepts? I tried using Cloud9 but it (and a few other services) wanted me to enter information about servers etc. before allowing me to code. That stuff is a little ahead of my game (and out of my understanding) as I simply want to practice at the moment.

Thanks for the help!

I have installed ubuntu 12.04 on my chromebook and installed sublimetext2 and do all my coding from there. Great solution.
