Introduction to HTML and CSS-Online

In this course, students learn the fundamental language of modern web development: HTML and CSS. Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) uses symbols and codes to tell a web browser how to display a website; Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) define the appearance of a site's layout and design elements. Students learn to translate pre-made designs into code to recreate a variety of simple web layouts that can be personalized to suit their own needs. Best practices in web design and how to troubleshoot common problems are also addressed. With 24/7 access to course materials, students can learn at their own pace, any time of day. Before starting the course, students should be comfortable completing the following tasks on their computer: Navigating the directory structure; creating, deleting, renaming, and moving files and directories; downloading and installing software applications from the web. A Mac or PC computer, access to the Internet, and a web browser are needed. Prerequisite(s): Introduction to Graphic Design, Digital Design: Adobe Photoshop, or equivalent experience.

Note: This Adult Continuing Education online course is project-based with no set meetings times and 24-7 access to course materials. Weekly activities will include readings, video demonstrations, tutorials, online discussions, assignments, and critiques.
