You want to learn HTML so you can finally create those web pages you've always wanted, so you can communicate more effectively with friends, family, fans, and fanatic customers. You also want to do it right so you can actually maintain and expand your web pages over time so they work in all browsers and mobile devices. Oh, and if you've never heard of CSS, that's okay--we won't tell anyone you're still partying like it's 1999--but if you're going to create web pages in the 21st century then you'll want to know and understand CSS.
This course starts students with the basics of eXtensible Hyper Text Markup Language (XHTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and how they interface with current Internet technologies and then moves into more complex features and programming skills needed to create robust HTML5 and CSS3 documents and web sites. This class focuses on learning the code. Most exercises will be hand-coded, but we will also experiment with editing tools available to speed up coding and increase productivity.
We will create a website using XHTML documents and CSS style sheets. We will learn techniques for formatting text, creating many types of lists, and establishing links between web pages. Students will learn to add pictures and multimedia files to their web pages. Students will learn advanced techniques to use with layout, tables and images. They will build Cascading Style Sheets and data-collection forms. This course provides the HTML foundation needed to create a web site.
Students should be comfortable working on a PC with multiple windows and file structures. Students should be familiar with the Internet and use of Web. Knowledge of programming is helpful, but not necessary. Suggested classes:
