Web Design Foundations is a four part modular course aimed at anyone who wants to learn about how the Web works from the very basic beginnings and be taken step by step, in a friendly informal style, up to the point where they know how to build a basic modern best practices web site and put it online.
This includes a bit of theory, but it largely focuses on getting your hands dirty with code (such as HTML and CSS), and learning how it REALLY works.
Based on the Omniversity Crowd Sourced Curriculum Survey, we’ve found an overwhelming number of people who would like to get to grips with the basics of web design. Like previous course at the Omniversity, this is a hands on course, and will take you though from the very basics to advanced topics.
Taking into account learning times preference gleaned from the survey, we are offering these courses on Monday evenings, with the exception of the Advanced HTML , which is a Monday afternoon to evening class.
You can join in at the level you think you need. We are running
