General Description:  The Web Authoring student will learn to construct web sites using current HTML and CSS, site design and imaging applications. Students will do market research on target populations to propose site design. Students will survey, create, design, test, the web site as well as produce personal works for themselves or others.

Learn about the building blocks of the web and how to use them to create for a variety of different purposes. Build a variety of different kinds of websites for different purposes and have the skills to maintain, update, and use your websites to continue using through your educational career - and beyond. All the while, students will learn Syntax skills through HTML and CSS; useful for both Web Design and many computer programming languages (Intro to Computer Science is a good class to learn Logical skills, and can work as a compliment to this course’s Syntax skills).
