In today's online environment, designers must create websites that are responsive. Their sites must reshape and morph 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. This is the heart of responsive Web design (RWD).
In this course, you'll 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'll master how to use HTML5 linked to media queries in CSS3 to adapt content to fit your user's viewport, and see how jQuery Mobile can help you to mobile sites.
Today's world of Web design requires building sites that are intuitive, inviting, accessible, and attractive in every possible device and environment. In this course, you'll learn to design and build fully responsive websites optimized for smartphones, tablets, and laptop/desktop viewing environments.
