In today’s online environment, Web designers must create websites that are responsive to provide a positive experience in every viewport---from small touch-screen environments to large-screen browsers where users interact using a mouse or pointing device. Web design requires building sites that are intuitive, inviting, accessible, and attractive in every possible device and environment.
In this course, you will learn to identify and address every aspect of responsive Web design: from scaling elements and adjusting page layout, to adapting color schemes and implementing accessible forms. You will master the use of HTML5 linked to media queries in CSS3 to adapt content to fit your user’s viewpoint, and see how jQuery Mobile can help you to mobile sites. This course will teach you to design and build fully responsive websites optimized for smartphones, tablets, and laptop/desktop viewing environments.
