Description

As the preeminent presentation language of the web, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) allows designers to effectively separate form and content, while reinforcing their control over a site's published appearance. With the introduction of CSS3 and HTML5 standards, the web is becoming a much more stable and robust platform for designers, whose work must now stretch from traditional desktop browsers to an ever-widening array of mobile devices. In this course, students become familiar with CSS behavior through lectures and exercises in a project-based learning model that anticipates the likely changes in CSS standards. Students can expect their resulting webpages to be more structurally sound, as they demonstrate the qualities that have long been associated with inspired design.

Applies to: GR-E, IT-R

Description

In this fast-moving and cutting-edge web design course, students learn a code driven approach to visual styling for web presentation and deployment. The course begins with a "decode" of the vocabulary and connects it to workflow. Students learn CSS and JavaScript and get a practical understanding of broad topics (web layout and behavior) through specific exercises (styling Scalable Vector Graphics, or SVG). Students will get a glimpse of the interactive future as they consider how code will influence 3D graphics and virtual reality. While the instructor will provide the content, students are welcome to work on sites to which they have access, ensuring that the course is responsive to individual needs.

Applies to: AT, YD
