COURSE COM1055: WEB DESIGN 1
Prerequisite: COM1005: Visual Composition
Description: Students research the characteristics of effective Web page(s) and learn World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) conventions and accessibility concerns to construct a simple Web page.
For this course, you will learn to use basic HTML to make a single web page. Then, we will look at some elements of good web design and plan out a more professional looking multi-page website. You will be introduced to some tools (programs) that can help speed up the coding of your website. We will look at inserting scripts to improve the sites, like animated menu buttons, YouTube videos and other effects. Finally, you will build and test the website, then upload it to our class web server.
