This course is designed to help you build a website from the ground up, using HTML5. As we work through each lesson, we will develop a complete, fully functioning website. After completing the course, you will understand how HTML5 works and have the tools to build your own complete website. The course will take you step by step through the newest standards of HTML5 and CSS3.
This course is designed for all levels of experience, including beginners. To follow along in this course, you will need the files provided, a standard text processing application, and a web browser. Each lesson will dive into one aspect or process of developing a website. Once you’ve reviewed the lesson, you will have time to gain practical experience by working through the steps on your own website project.
By the end of the course you will not only have a completed website, but you’ll also understand how the elements and pages work together and will have the the tools needed to explore them on your own.
