Welcome to the Spring section of Web Design. You should all have previously completed ETEC5213. The Web Design course will build on your current coding skills and much more.
This course focuses on developing web pages that meet current standards for usability and accessibility, and on working with a web team to identify what content will be included and how you will present that content. YOU will be the designer. The web design team (at least one other person) will be subject matter experts and/or target users. You should meet with the team (live or virtually) at least 5 times throughout the semester.
You will start the semester by completing a few introductory activities to introduce yourself to the class and your instructor. You will then review some code and learn a bit more. This course will mandate to that you create valid code (xhmtl and css) so it is important that you understand proper syntax. You will also be required to validate your sites for Section 508 accessibility and we will spend some time on this topic.
Please follow the steps below to get started on your course:
So, with all that said, take the course a step at a time, keep up with assignments (note that no late assignments will be accepted) and ask questions if you are confused. I hope that you not only learn a great deal this semester, but have fun as well.
