Event description

Description

Tim Berners Lee said ‘the original idea of the web was that it should be a collaborative space where you can communicate through sharing information.’ To communicate and collaborate you must first speak this universal language. Join us on this introductory course to learn how to build websites from the ground up using HTML, CSS and Javascript. We’ll teach you how to make these compatible with all devices, from smartphone to desktop, through a focused programme combining lab and online work.

As well as the work we complete in class, you will also be asked to undertake tasks using the Coursera learning platform. Through a combination of lab and online work we’ll teach you the fundamental skills of web design, and are especially interested in tailoring the course to suit your needs. Whether you wish to develop your own project, or to gain additional employability skills, we can guide you through your first steps, offering you expert guidance and troubleshooting any issues you experience.

This a five week intensive short course designed to help you take your first steps in responsive web design and development. We’ll achieve this by focusing on the three most common web design languages: HTML, CSS & JavaScript. Many websites aren’t built to be adaptable to different devices, meaning the user experience is hampered. This leads to pictures being wrongly formatted, or important messages becoming lost. Learning to build responsive websites from scratch will help you alleviate these issues, and to create a welcoming and adaptable space for your audience.

This the first in our two part series in web design and development. After this course you may wish to take the second instalment: Web Design and Development: Advanced Coding
