Take your Web design skills to the next level! Whether you want to work as a freelance Web designer, join a Web development team, or build websites for your organization, this course will give you the advanced tools you need.
In these lessons, you'll learn to write HTML code for page content and CSS code for page styling. You'll master cutting-edge techniques that take advantage of HTML5 and CSS3, the latest versions of the languages used to create modern websites.
With the help of step-by-step instructions, you'll build interactive websites that collect information from visitors through email signup and feedback forms. In addition, you'll learn the latest and most effective techniques for presenting layouts and video that work in any browsing environment from a desktop computer to a mobile device. Along the way, you'll explore aesthetics, color scheming, and accessible Web page design.
And don't worry if you have only the most basic exposure to Web design! This course walks you all the way through to purchasing and uploading your site to a remote server. You won't need any special software, either—just the text editor that comes installed with your computer.
Whether you're a beginner or an experienced Web designer wanting to update and enhance your skills, this course is perfect for you. In just a few weeks, you'll be designing state-of-the-art websites that offer all the sophisticated elements that today's Web users expect to see.
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
Today, you’ll expand your horizons by learning how to format selected page content. After that, you’ll take a big step into advanced design by discovering how to use class styles to design content boxes. In the process, you’ll learn all about two powerful Web design tools: div tags and span tags.
Do you use a mobile device to browse the Web? More and more people do—and to keep them happy, you’ll need to provide mobile-friendly content. But how can you do that, and still design a page that works on a big screen? Today, you’ll find out how to create Web pages that look different, but still great, on both full-sized monitors and mobile devices.
You will need to download and install a free code editor for Windows or Mac.
I have enjoyed this class a lot and learned much. I really wanted 3 things from this class, creating working forms, embedding videos, and what HTML5 is all about. Embedding videos was pretty straight forward and Vimeo was easy to use. HTML5 worked in the newest gadgets and I guess that is the future. Image maps was totally new to me and fun to learn...Again, I have really had fun with this class. It has improved my skills and for an old lady (84), that is a great accomplishment.
Thank you. This was the first time I have taken an online class. I liked the pace and convenience. My absolute favorite chapter was on the mobile-media, using the 2 style sheets. Very cool.
I found this course to be a great introduction to designing with CSS and HTML5. I will be looking for other courses to take me to the next level in each of these…We had a great instructor. He really knows his business first hand and does a tremendous job of guiding us from the most basic tasks to the pro level of design.
This is the second course I have taken and I plan on taking a few more…The instructor is great, information is up to date and useful…I have spent hours trying to research the things taught in this course via Google and other means…The way these courses are laid out and presented make them an unbeatable value. Also, doing them in your own time is huge for people like myself with hectic schedules.
This course was written well and the instructor was knowledgable and friendly. This helped me better understand the new advances in web design as well as solidify some of the basics. Thank you!
I chose this course so I could upgrade my understanding and skill level and the course exceeded my expectations. I am very grateful to Dave Karlins for his excellent scope and guidance that always took into account a broad range of experiences while also approaching the material with an eye for humor and patience. I have already been spreading the good news about this course and this instructor--I am in the writing and editing business so a lot of my peers really need this kind of course. Thank you, Dave Karlins and ed2go. My career path has been repaved!
The course helped me to learn areas I was deficient in. For example, I needed to learn a little more about the layout of web pages, and this course makes an excellent presentation in that area. I also needed to learn about developing web pages for cell phones and tablets, and this course taught me a lot there. In addition, I learned about video and HTML5. In the beginning, I questioned whether I should be taking this course because the early lessons were review. As the course continued, I was very pleasantly surprised at the amount I learned. The entire course is clearly written. I think it's a great course, and I'm glad I took it.
I absolutely loved this course. I have taken five courses and this has been my favorite.
This course was outstanding. I feel as though Mr. Karlins concentrated on the practical and useful elements involved in web design. I believe that I walked away from this course with much more knowledge in what counts in web design. I appreciate and thank David Karlins for his time and knowledge and for creating such a cool course.
I have not done any web design or had any experience with html codes prior to this course and I found it extremely easy to follow. Thee is plenty of information available but not an overload. I love David's style of facilitating, sense of humour (I thought I'd be out of my depth with boffin-type references but this was not the case!) and was confident that if I needed further assistance I need only make contact and it would be answered promptly. I would highly recommend and will pursue these new skills further. Many thanks.
