EXPLORING HTML5 AND CSS
Exploring HTML5 & CSS is for all IS and non-IS professionals who are interested in learning how to code webpages using HTML & CSS. This course consists of a comprehensive overview of HTML and an introduction to CSS. HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the “language of the Web”. In this course students learn how to build Web pages using semantic HTML5 tags for content and structure, and basic CSS for formatting and some page layout.
This course focuses on advanced features of CSS. Students will learn essential information about CSS, including selectors & data types, both of which are critical to understanding CSS. From there, we’ll dive into various deep subjects, such as layout, styling shapes, animation, & media-specific styles for printing & responsive web design (covered extensively in another course).
