General Discussion

Overall Time trained

Is there a way to see how much time I've spent on training? The points are great but in my corporate world, points don't mean anything. They are more concerned with the hours I've spent on increasing my skill set.

Thanks!

That's not currently a feature of Treehouse.

So given that, what if you want to be able to report your training time for this month?

Here's how I would do it if I were you ...

In terms of time spent on Treehouse it's really just amount of time spent watching videos and amount of time spent of code challenges. Of course that's only half the story, the time spent taking notes and working on side projects in a online code playground or a text editor is where a lot of the learning happens.

You could use something like Rescue Time to track Treehouse, codepen & your text editor and use those figures as a basis.

Thank you for your response, James.

Never knew about Rescue Time, I'll look into it.

It's pretty neat because it will give you nifty bar charts showing you, how you are spending your time on your computer broken down by application/website.

James Barnett - that rescue time looks insane. I am 100% getting that. Great to see how many hours I'm actually spending coding and thus working.
