Create Web pages with online courses
“Creating Web Pages I & II” is an upcoming course offered by the University of Tennessee at Martin Office of Extended Campus and Continuing Education and partner, Ed2Go.
• “Creating Web Pages I” will allow participants to create and post their own Web site on the Internet in this extensive, hands-on, six-week workshop. Students will learn about the capabilities of the World Wide Web and the fundamentals of Web design. Then, with the instructor’s guidance, they will plan the content, structure and layout of the personal Web site, create pages full of formatted text, build links between the pages and to the outside world, and add color, backgrounds, graphics, tables, hot buttons and animation. Participants also learn critical and timely information to secure the best possible location in search engine listings and no-cost or low-cost Web marketing strategies. Requirements include Internet access, e-mail, Internet Explorer, Netscape or Firefox Web browser, familiarity with the Internet and a computer of any type.
• “Creating Web Pages II” will make sure participants are using HTML to its fullest potential. In this practical, project-oriented course, students will discover how to use tables to create fresh, innovative and unconventional arrangements of text, colors and graphics. They will become skilled at incorporating audio into a site and find out how frames can improve site navigation. Also, they will learn how to make a site more interactive through the use of forms and learn how formatting pages with Cascading Style Sheets can save hours of time and effort. Requirements include completion of “Creating Web Pages I” online course (or equivalent HTML experience), Internet access, e-mail, Netscape, Firefox or Internet Explorer Web browser and a computer of any type.
Courses are project-oriented and include lessons, quizzes, hands-on assignments, discussion areas and supplementary links. Courses can be completed from home or office and at any time of the day or night.
