Advanced HTML


This hands on Web programming class provides a thorough introduction into the creation of a Website using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Starting with thorough coverage of HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), the course progresses to the implementation of dynamic client-side content using JavaScript. HTML topics include use of HTML5 semantic tags, block-level and inline elements, creating links, different types of lists, creation of tables and forms. Students will learn to attach CSS to a page using several different techniques, CSS selectors and pseudo-classes, CSS box model, and a variety of CSS2.1 properties. JavaScript topics include adding JavaScript to a Webpage, use of dialogs to interact with the user and JavaScript intrinsic objects such as Date, Array and Math. Students will also be introduced to the Document Object Model (DOM), creation of functions, event handling, form validation, JSON and Ajax. Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.
