What you'll learn in this web design class:

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the foundation of website and web application development. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the fundamental concepts needed to use HTML effectively including semantic markup for tagging content as what it is, and not just for formatting. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a stylesheet language that allows you to control the appearance of your webpages. This workshop will cover the key concepts of CSS, explaining what you need to know to edit existing CSS and write your own. You will learn how to add colors and other design elements to make well designed webpages. The workshop will also cover how to use selectors, how the box model defines the spacing and sizing of page elements, how to style text and manage basic layouts, how to work with advanced selectors, creating responsive layouts, and determining when to use float and position properties.

Question from Neil F.
Hi, Will the class touch on using HTML on the back end of existing ready-made platforms, such as Wordpress, etc?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The class touch on the role of HTML/CSS in Squarespace and Wordpress as a discussion but do not do exercises that take students through the steps. The hand-coding students learn in this course is applicable to a wide range of platforms.

This was a wonderful course. Laura did a wonderful job of simplifying web design, a field full of its own specialized terms. She was open to every question I asked, knowing that the most important thing in the end was that we were on the same page. She maintained a professional attitude, clear teaching methods, and a caring side befitting of a private lesson. I recommend this course to anyone with even the slightest interest in web design.
