3 - Fully Loaded with jQuery
Using jQuery, interactivity can take many forms: User input can allow us to insert and remove content, move content around, generate new content, or even load content from external files. In Lesson Three, we explore how jQuery's insertion methods can help us manipulate content (text, images, or media) throughout a Web site. We explore how to get and set content and program safely within important browser security protections. We look at how to write code that runs asynchronously to accomplish a series of tasks, and how to use callback functions to detect program completion. We look at effect methods that can make interactivity clearer or more exciting, and how to use event methods to program different stages in user interaction.

4 - Collect Your Thoughts with Arrays
Many useful Web interfaces are driven by a database. In Lesson Four, you'll explore how to efficiently and elegantly select data, run programs with it, and design it for your Web pages. You'll learn how to work with the array object type and use for-loops to iterate code and execute your programs. You'll learn how to avoid the trap of the "infinite loop" and break out of for-loops. You'll learn how to make the data more usable for Web visitors with array methods.
