Introduction to Web Design for Teens (Online)

Learn about the history and foundations of web design, and explore how to actually implement those designs through web development. Students gain both conceptual knowledge, like information architecture, graphic design, and principles of typography, as well as learn concrete technical skills like file management, code editing and usability testing. Throughout the course students learn not just what a well-designed site looks like, but how to use the actual development technologies needed to bring those designs to life as functional websites. This class does not involve extensive coding, but students will be introduced to some basic concepts of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. / Students will have access to Adobe Creative Cloud software throughout the class./ Open to students ages 15–18.
