Class Project

Build your own website using HTML and CSS

This class is perfect for anyone with a great website idea or just an interest in learning how to code. This is a beginner-level class so if you have basic computer literacy and an internet connection, you're all set. Learn at your own pace. 

You'll leave this class with the skills to create your very own stylish, professional, and responsive website.

What You Will Learn

  • HTML and Web Fundamentals. You'll start with text editing basics, headings, images and linking between pages.
  • Tables, Forms, and Iframes. After learning the essentials you'll learn how to add more elements like tables, forms, and Iframes to your pages.
  • HTML5 Elements. You'll add HTML 5 semantic containers, metadata, and media to your pages.
  • CSS Fundamentals. You'll use CSS to create a style sheet that will allow you to fluidly change your pages contents.
  • Building Page Layouts. You'll build with columns and utilize the box model.
  • Positioning and Sprites. You'll use z-index and sprites to creat advanced layout features. 
  • Responsive Layout. You'll create responsive site design that allows your site to alter its style and content positioning based on the size of the device it is being viewed on.

What You'll Make

Spread throughout the course are Code Challenges. Code Challenges are opportunities for you to put what you've learned to practice by coding on your own. A continuous project will be built out of the code challenges adding more to your site project with each challenge.

Handouts and Resources
