This course is an easy to understand first step towards creating meaningful web content and will give delegates an understanding of how to put together simple web pages incorporating links, images and basic styling. The course is designed to provide delegates with hands-on experience of building their own Web pages.
The course is aimed at anyone who has been charged with developing basic web content.
At the end of this course you will be able to:
Module 1: Introduction
Module 2: Basic HTML
HTML forms the basis for most web content. This chapter deals with creating basic pages and basic formatting.
Module 3: Lists, Links and XHTML
This chapter introduces list creation, hyperlinks and their targets and discusses the implications of absolute and relative links. The final part adds the strict rules of XHTML.
Module 4: Images
There are many image formats although only a few are suitable for the web. Images are required for most sites and may be used for a multitude of purposes, including navigation. It is therefore very important to use the right type of image as well as understanding the HTML that will present the image in the most pleasing way.
Module 5: Tables, Inline Frames and CSS
Tables have been the mainstay of page design for many major sites and can be used to create the look and feel of the site interface. Although there is less need for this now, it is still important to understand table structures and how to lay out data on the page. In addition, the delegates will learn how to use and configure Inline frames. There is also an introduction to CSS including embedded, inline and linked style sheets as well as using CSS classes.
Delegates should have a working knowledge of the Windows operating environment and be familiar with the concepts and use of the Internet.
