Course Description

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) gives Web designers control over the appearance of their web sites by managing visual content. CSS allows the designer to make a complete overhaul of visual design by completing minor changes to the CSS programming language. This course presents the essentials of CSS, including selectors, the cascade and inheritance. It also covers how to build an effective and dynamic navigation system, how to use page layout, work with typography, colors, backgrounds, and white space. We will use a project-based approach and the learner will design and develop a fully functional web site for a semester project.
