Go geek chic with HTML and CSS!
Dreamweaver is the most powerful web design software available. It allows you to publish and create interactive projects, without much prior technical experience. The aim of the course is to provide you with the ability to produce accurate and functional websites with ease. The course has a strong emphasis on design, accessibility and search engine optimization techniques, whilst giving you a clear understanding of HTML syntax and the correct use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). You will also learn valuable real world hints and tips acquired over years of experience in the web design and development field.
You will learn how to plan and design your website using Photoshop, to slice and import image files and how Dreamweaver works closely with Photoshop on the web. We will teach you how to create a really inviting home page. You will learn how to create and produce exciting content for your pages, which will encourage people to visit your site. Content will consist of both text and pictures, and you will be taught how to use and prepare both.
This course assumes that you have no prior knowledge of HTML, CSS or Dreamweaver, but a sound understanding of Photoshop is essential. We will provide you with the training that will help you become an excellent web designer. You will also be given an introduction to Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) as means of not only styling text, but also positioning objects within a web site. This is a good taster for the following advanced course. Using a variety of means, such as hyperlinks, rollovers and image maps you will be shown how you can link one page with another, and build links from your site to an email address.
You must have a sound understanding of Photoshop and be able to prepare images for the web. All students attending this course must be confident with Windows or Macintosh environments, including creating, moving and deleting files and folders.
