Web Design


About Instructor


Course Description

Web Design introduces students to the raw materials of web content and the design techniques that create effective web communication and interaction. The three primary web languages, HTML, CSS, and Javascript, form the raw materials; web standards from the W3C help shape design techniques for media creation, navigation, and interactivity. Students will create single-page and multi-page web artifacts that meet the standards of the industry. Each week, students will be introduced to a new set of language, computation, and design skills. Students will use the free educational version of Mozilla Thimble, a respected training-level browser-based web development platform.
