NEW! Learn web development with HTML & CSS in our newest course

Did you know that there are about 2 billion active websites today? This number has been growing exponentially, with a dizzying array of new online services launching each year, and more people accessing the web using their computers, tablets and mobile phones.  In this new course, students will learn how to create and host their own websites. Using the two standard web languages HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) together, they will learn to design and craft their own web pages with code. There are no prerequisites for this course. We recommend Intro to Web Development for ages 12+.

The course is specifically designed for those who would like a step-by-step description of the basics. It contains 10 lessons and starts by introducing HTML and CSS language syntax. Students begin by creating simple web pages using basic elements to control page layout and style, and then gradually expand their skills to build posters, a photo gallery and even their own Instagram clone.

The course covers the following topics: HTML page creation, CSS styles, hyperlinks, lists, and tables; CSS pseudo-classes, selectors, and more; typography and page layout; the CSS box model; embedding images, audio, and video; modal popups and hover states; and multi-page websites and responsive website design.

Each lesson includes a number of hands-on coding exercises with error-checking, a do-it-yourself project with a step-by-step tutorial, and a multiple-choice quiz to assess students’ understanding of concepts.
