It's not enough for a website to work. It has to flow properly and look great, too. In this, the first of two web design courses, you'll learn the basic concepts of website design. First, you'll learn how to code in HTML, which is awesomely geeky. Then you'll move on to code-editing features and learn how to style your pages using CSS. This is a very hands-on course that prepares you for course II and your eventual career in worldwide web wizardry.
