We explore how the web works, tags, links, images, lists, tables, forms, web standards (old, new, and evolving), directory structure, wireframing, web development best practices, and lay the foundation for further web development in the next course, Web Development Basics: CSS. This five week online course is a blend of tutorials, readings, development projects, and online discussion. The class is geared toward the beginning to intermediate web developer or designer. / Open to students ages 16 and above. / View complete policiesThis course is included in MCAD's Web Development certificate.

How does an online course work at MCAD?
Most online courses are asynchronous, meaning that there are no set class meeting times. Instead, courses are project-based, with 2 to 3 deadlines per week, and students can choose a time and place that works best for them to complete the work. Course activities may include readings; video demonstrations and tutorials; online discussions; projects; and critiques. The workload of a 1 credit course is roughly 8-10 hours per week, whether the course is being taken for credit or noncredit.

Required Textbook: See the MCAD Art Cellar and Bookstore for a list of required textbooks.
