Course | Web Design Updated

Information Technology

Web Design provides a hands-on introduction to designing, building, and launching websites. First, learners discover how the World Wide Web works, and they examine successful websites. Then, they learn the basics of HTML coding and create their web pages. Next, learners explore various web development tools, and they practice creating websites. They learn how to make their websites more effective by applying the principles of design and usability, and accessibility criteria. In the final unit, learners explore various web design careers that they might want to pursue.

Planning Tools
For Learners

PLANNING TOOLS provides essential information to guide course implementation, including scope and sequence, detailed lesson plans, semester planning outline, course updates, and project overview. Several courses offer free online resources with hyperlinked URLs to enhance blended, synchronous, and asynchronous learning. The scope and sequence guide the resource selections to ensure the content aligns with lesson topics. The online resource collection includes course outlines, modules, lesson plans, videos, projects, and articles.

FOR LEARNERS: Did you know that in 2030, 85% of the jobs are not in existence yet? So, how can what you are learning in school today possibly prepare you for an unknowable future?

The answer is simple! You do not stop learning just because you graduated from high school. You must embrace the concept of life-long learning to thrive in a highly tech-enabled and information-driven future. Your skillsets are less about what a teacher “poured” into your head and more about exploring issues and topics about which you are passionate. In the future, employers will not be as interested in your grade point average as compared to the initiative you took to extend your knowledge.
