Winter 2014 - Web Design Tools @ PNCA
I’m teaching another session of my popular introductory web design class this winter term. This is a great class for folks who would like to develop the basic skills to create websites. This is not a coding class (that would be so dull), instead I cover all the basics, including introductory coding, choosing a content management system, writing for the web, tackling mobile, and managing images.
A lot of folks who take this class are looking to add to their skills as part of their job or are graphic designers looking to be able to better communicate with clients who also need web services. Really, anyone who wants to develop web skills will benefit from this course.
Many students move on to take advanced coding classes or web development classes, so it can be a foundation for a career in web design.
In this introductory Web Design course students will be introduced to the fundamentals of creating a personal or professional website. We will explore various content management systems, strategies for designing a website, examine the process for determining the best web solution for your needs and begin work on a personal project of each students choice. By completing this course, students will achieve a basic understanding of the language of working with websites, designing and organizing content, and will be able to create a site using a content management system.
