Web Design Foundations

Starting from the 12th Sept - 14th Nov

This 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 all
really works.

By learning an up to date web skill set of best practices and
guidelines, you can build web pages that are:

More accessible to diverse groups of web users, including those with
impairments such as blindness, which may use special tools to access web
More adaptable for viewing on a diverse range of browsing devices, such
as mobile phones and tablets
Easier to maintain and update, and easier to work on with a team of
other web designers and developers
More likely to rank highly in relevant search engine searches (eg
Google, Bing)
If you are a complete beginner, you can start at the beginning; if not,
you can join slightly later on. The course is also suitable for existing
web designers and developers who want to brush up on their skills and
bring them into the modern age.

The courses are as follows:

Web design foundations 1: Introduction to the Web, and web design.
My first course is for complete beginners, who know nothing beyond basic
computer literacy. Here I explain what the Web is and how it works,
important underlying concepts such as accessibility, FTP, search engine
optimization and information architecture, and have a basic play with
some HTML and CSS at the end.
Web design foundations 2: HTML Basics.
The second part teaches all the HTML you’ll need to make your way into
web design and development with confidence! From text to tables, and
links to images, this course has it all.
Web design foundations 3: CSS Basics.
My third course looks at CSS, and shows you everything, from the real
basic fundamentals such as selectors, text styling and the box model, to
some fairly advanced techniques like web fonts, styling links and forms
and multiple column layouts with floats.
Web design foundations 4: Advanced CSS and HTML topics.
This course brushes past the basics, looking at HTML5 syntax, forms and
video, CSS3 bling such as linear gradients, opacity and drop shadows,
and adaptive layouts using Media Queries and viewport.
