General Discussion

The Responsive Layout course says it only last 47 mins, However, it contains many modules which are longer. Why is this?

The Responsive Layout is in the Front End Web Development track. Many other courses in this track are set up the same way as I described above, meaning the total number of minutes required to finish each module is far longer than what the course description indicates. Is this a mistake? If not, why is it set up this way?

Some people can grasp it in that time. Some people need less time and some people need more. None of these say anything about anyone's ability but they have to average it somehow.

In my opinion the time they give is meaningless and you should ignore it. It's only really there to give a rough estimate of how long it takes to complete.
