This course is designed for individuals getting started in Web design and development, and focuses on creating static sites. Dynamic, database-driven sites involve additional design approaches that are beyond the scope of this course. However, the concepts in this course still apply to dynamic content, since the focus is on what the user sees, rather than how the content is generated. This course is designed for anyone interested in learning some important principles of Web design that apply to just about any purpose or theme. You will explore several pitfalls of Web design and how to avoid them, and a variety of design tips and guidelines that you can use no matter what your Web site project entails. Students taking this course should have at least intermediate-level experience with HTML, including tables and forms, and familiarity or experience with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
