The course is delivered over the course of the Autumn and Spring terms 2019/20. The Autumn Term explores HTML, the markup language used to structure web page content. The Spring Term focuses on CSS, which is used to style web pages.
The course begins with an Induction and Key Concept session. The session explains the resources available - a comprehensive e-learning course, practice projects and GMetrix practice software - and will set you off on your web design journey by introducing HTML.
After the initial session, the remainder of the course will be delivered through e-learning, practice projects and additional Key Concept sessions. Attendance at Key Concept sessions is optional, but recommended, as they explore principle features in detail and are an opportunity to get help from the course team (or we can be reached anytime through email or the MTA Yammer group).
The optional Key Concept sessions in the Autumn Term will be held as follows. Key Concept 2: Wed 30/10/2019 15:00 – 17:00 or Fri 01/11/2019 10:00 – 12:00. Key Concept 3: Wed 20/11/2019 13:00 – 15:00 or Fri 22/11/2019 10:00 – 12:00.
The optional Key Concept sessions in the Spring Term will be held as follows. Key Concept 4: Wed 15/01/2020 13:00 – 15:00 or Fri 17/01/2020 10:00 – 12:00.
