So I received an email from Code Dojo Academy advertising a new 1 hour long live stream lecture (not a lesson, but a lecture) on Thursday.
This one is scheduled for HTML & CSS and promises:

...where we'll show you the basics of web development and walk you through building your very first webpage.

And (my favorite boast of all online lectures/lessons)

Never coded before? No problem -- we've made this lecture just for beginners!

Yay...beginners. So yes, I've signed up to be one of the people that get to sit and watch. Why? Well, I'm hoping that I come away with a better opinion. And yes, I know this is a beta project and can appreciate this fact.

I've reached out to Sean from Code Dojo with my questions and observations. I'll post our conversation later.
