Event Description

This two-part online class will be held on May 23 and 30, 2013 from 12:00 - 1:00 pm. Students must attend both sessions.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) help describe basic design elements like colors and shapes, so that a webpage will display exactly as a Web designer wants it to appear on the Web.  Essentially, CSS helps give a webpage a distinct look and feel. 

In this 2-part webinar you will:

  • Learn what CSS does and appreciate its importance in Web design
  • Recognize and use general CSS grammar (e.g., syntax, semantics, vocabulary)
  • Understand how to link a CSS file to an HTML document
  • Create a Web designers toolbox
  • Design a basic webpage using CSS

Participants will be given server space to create their own page.

This class will be delivered online. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the course.
