Course Introduction: Web Design 1B, Second Semester

Web Design is a hands-on applications course. Web Design 1B is the follow-up course to Web Design 1A. In this second half of Web Design, you will continue creating Web pages that combine the basic Web design skills you learned in Web Design 1A with the new skills you’ll learn in Web Design 1B. Some of the skills you’ll pick up along the way include how to create forms for gathering data from Web surfers and how to use cascading style sheets to maintain a uniform look and feel for all your Web pages. We’ll also touch on the basics of JavaScript, video, sound, e-commerce, Web promotion, and much more.

Since the Internet is an important part of this course; you will be expected to conduct research and view other designers’ Web pages using the Internet. You must have a background in basic computer skills and the Internet to successfully complete the lesson assignments. You should already know how to:

• operate your computer system
