Welcome to the Intro to HTML 5 and CSS course. We are currently only running one session which meets on Thursday nights since the majority of our students are in the United States and Canada. If we get at least 10 students from Europe and/or Africa, we have the ability to run a second session which will better suit the needs of these students. If we do not have sufficient students to set up a second session, students can still attend. We have a podcast feed of our recorded lectures which is open o all students of the class. Students from Europe and Africa who can not attend live can request a meeting with an instructor if they have questions or need help.
The Intro to HTML 5 and CSS course is designed to teach HTML and web design concepts from the ground up, with no prior knowledge necessary. It is a 22 week course that covers HTML 5, CSS 3 to control the appearance of a website, working with graphics, and how to make a website ready for e-commerce. All content is tailored to support people who are blind or visually impaired. Web server space is provided for students, so no web hosting plan or domain is needed during class.
Read on to learn about the course and how to enroll.
The curriculum for this course consists of written notes, sample code files, lectures, and an optional study group for students. There is also a support email list where students can discuss what they're learning, ask questions, and exchange ideas.
There are written homework assignments each week to help students put what they're learning into practice. It's very important to do these since writing HTML is the only way to understand how the concepts truly work. The final exam consists of building a website with a minimum of 5 pages featuring the concepts taught in class. This site will be fully built as students do their homework each week.
Topics covered in this class include:
The following are required to complete this course.
A Note to IE Users
IE 8 does not support HTML 5 at all. For this reason, Windows XP users need to be willing to use either Firefox or Chrome to test their work. We know that many of you know IE 8 well and like it, but it won't display HTML 5 correctly, no matter what you try. Also ie 9 has hit it's end of life, and many sites will not support this version of IE either.
