Course Description

Summer 2024 • Grade 7 and above • Programming Sequence

HTML Basics

This course covers the basic elements of HTML5 (the current standard hypertext markup language) used in webpage production, with an emphasis on the fundamentals of web page mechanics and design. In a series of live chat sessions, students will copy and implement the techniques demonstrated and perform hands-on exercises to learn how HTML tags control page layout, fonts, links, lists, and tables. Students will create simple forms to collect information from the site user, and configure cascading style sheets to change the look and feel of their websites. We will also discuss site design and readability, and explore internet resources to continue development of basic skills.
