Web Design Foundations is a four part modular course aimed at anyone who wants to learn about how the Web works from the very basic beginnings and be taken step by step, in a friendly informal style, up to the point where they know how to build a basic modern best practices web site and put it online. This includes a bit of theory, but it largely focuses on getting your hands dirty with code (such as HTML and CSS), and learning how it REALLY works.
Web Design Foundations 2 : HTML Basics
This course looks at the Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) language in detail, showing how it is used to structure and define all the different parts of your web content, such as headings, paragraphs, lists, links,forms, tables, images and more. The focus is firmly on making sure your content is presented using modern best practices, making it logical, flexible and accessible and usable by the widest variety of web users possible. The session also includes a look at HTML5 semantics: the future of markup.
What you need to be familiar with
The Web Design Foundations course assumes no knowledge beyond basic competency with computers, and a familiarity with using the Web. It is suitable for beginners. If you want to start the course part way through, you should understand the contents of the previous sessions first.
