In this hands-on course, students learn to create Web pages using HTML (HyperText Markup Language), the foundation for all Web sites. The course covers the fundamental concepts of hand-coding a Web page using HTML. It discusses all the major topics of coding and validating HTML, including techniques for meeting current standards and practices set aside by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The course also addresses basic coding practices to meet accessibility mandates as set by the American Disability Act (ADA) Section 508 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.2 AA). In addition, this course covers techniques for coding to improve search engine optimization (SEO).
Students will learn how to correctly format text, insert optimized images, link to other Web pages and sites, and create forms and data tables that all meet accessibility guidelines. The instructor will address the latest version of HTML, how it builds upon HTML 4.01 and XHTML, including new elements that have been introduced and are supported by current browsers. Throughout the course, the code will be taught and written to reflect today's standards.
The course is for students who have not previously coded Web pages, or those who would like to review and update their HTML coding skills to meet current practices and standards.
