The first part of this 5-day course focusses on essential Web page development skills. You will learn to develop Web sites using Hypertext Markup Language version 5 (HTML5) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). You will learn to write code manually, as well as use graphical user interface (GUI) authoring tools. You will also learn to insert images, create hyperlinks, and add tables, forms, video, and audio to your Web pages.
The latter part builds upon your manual coding skills to teach you how to develop Web documents using new elements, attributes and selectors introduced in HTML5 (Hypertext Markup Language version 5) and CSS3 (Cascading Style Sheets version 3). You will create Web pages using the HTML5 structure elements, embed video and audio, and develop cross-browser user-input forms.
