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.

Having an effective web presence is much more complicated than simply registering a domain name. It requires strategies to make your site stand out among the millions of other dot-coms. Search engines are the means by which internet addresses are delivered to inquiring web browsers and, once you understand how they work, you can use this knowledge to give your site a distinct advantage. A sound search engine strategy based on tested optimization techniques makes design and copywriting decisions that much clearer. This course provides you with a compass to work your way past the competition.
