Web Design & Development

This course is a semester-long introduction to web design, programming, and online media. Course topics include web aesthetics, adaptive/responsive interface design, browser compatibility, streaming media, site architecture, project management, and essential programming concepts in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Students will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to create a range of web sites and dynamic media for web publication using both remote server and content management system (such as WordPress) methods. Students will work on both individual and team projects, ultimately forming production teams who will collaborate on a final culminating project.

Our face-to-face sessions will be mostly be dedicated to collaborative work, but we will also aim to visit local web companies and attend the ForwardJS Web Technology Conference in San Francisco. There will also be regular virtual sessions held for weekly class meetings, on-demand tutorials, and group collaborations.
