Why is JQuery a course?

I understand that JQuery is a great JS library but feels strange as a stand alone course. Just wondering what made sololearn want to cover this? Appreciate all you do devs

Imo jQuery has significantly made his print in the Js history even tho more and more promising and powerful other frameworks have appeared recently. For me, jQuery is really simple to understand and to get familiar with its synthax, making it thus suitable for beginners as well. They couldn't include it with the javaScript course as it would have been a real hassle(regarding the time it would take) to complete it.

I think they wanted to introduce JS libraries(jQuery is/was a popular library) to beginners. I would like to see more libraries/frameworks like Angular,Reach, Node on courses. This is just my opinion.
