Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: develop client side web pages using HTML5 and CSS3 source code that is both readable and upholds current standards; create basic HTML elements such as hyperlinks, images, tables, and forms; use latest web technologies and programming languages to structure a web page effectively; control display and formatting characteristics for web page designs using Cascading Style Sheets; demonstrate knowledge of box properties and external style sheets to build portable, accessible, responsive web sites that present information with clarity and appeal; and compare and contrast user interactions between desktop web, mobile application, and mobile web.

Introduction to HTML5 and CSS3 is a self-study course introduces students to the principles of creating a web site from scratch using HTML5 (the latest HTML standard) and CSS3, (the latest CSS standard). This course leads students through the entire web site creation process, while developing and enhancing HTML, CSS, and visual design skills along the way. Students learn how to create accessible web sites that allow users to easily and quickly navigate through information, regardless of browser type, connection speed, or browsing device. Students also explore the principles of responsive design, a new method of designing web sites that adapt to devices ranging from mobile phones to desktop monitors. Whether building a site from scratch or redesigning an existing site, the principles presented in this course help students deliver their web content in a more responsive, accessible, and visually exciting way. Specifically, with HTML5 it is possible to develop web pages entirely with HTML5 and CSS3. There is no need for “plug‐ins” to provide additional functionality. The course of study is necessary to be prepared for the final examination, which consists of reading, study guide and crash course video supplements.
