    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.

    This was a fantastic class. I'm genuinely surprised with how much we were able to cover. I walked away with a much better understanding of HTML and CSS, along with all the tools I need to continue learning and experimenting on my own. Great experience overall.

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.
