Meaning of little dots next to course icon.

When looking at the list of courses, each courses has a little bar at the top with some icons. The first icon is to show if it's a Course, a Workshop or a Conference. Then there are some dots. And after that you have the duration of the courses.

What is the meaning of these dots? Sometimes there's only 2, sometimes there's 4 or 5.

Thanks!

The dots indicate how many stages there are in the course. For example the CSS Grid Layout course has three dots, because there are three stages:

  • Introducing Grid Layout
  • Flexible Sized Grids
  • Going Further with Grid Layout

Cheers :beers:
