Common Web Design Techniques Training Course Intermediate

You've been creating a website in FrontPage/Dreamweaver but things aren't going as smoothly as you want them too. Or you want to start designing a web site but you want to know what you're really doing, then this is the training course for you.

Dynamic, database-driven sites involve additional design approaches that are beyond the scope of this course. However, the concepts in this course still apply to dynamic content, since the focus is on what the user sees, rather than how the content is generated. This course is designed for anyone interested in learning some important principles of Web design that apply to just about any purpose or theme. You will explore several pitfalls of Web design and how to avoid them, and a variety of design tips and guidelines that you can use no matter what your Web site project entails. Students taking this course should have at least intermediate-level experience with HTML, including tables and forms, and familiarity or experience with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

Course Duration: 1 Day
