Learning HTML: Course Description

If you want to build customized web pages, you need to know HTML (HyperText Markup Language). This beginner's class by Utah State University is designed for users who have basic computer and Internet skills and are comfortable experimenting with unfamiliar computer technology. In addition to HTML instruction, 'Learn and Apply HTML' offers learning units on how the Internet works, how to use FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to publish web pages and how to make websites accessible to visitors with hearing, vision or motor disabilities. The course also covers functions like inserting multimedia elements and graphics onto websites, understanding JavaScript and using scripts on your website. Students must have a computer with sufficient capabilities to handle web page development. Adobe Acrobat Reader, Macromedia Flash Player and Windows Media Player are required. Also needed is an FTP client; FileZilla for PCs and Fetch for Macs are recommended. USU instructional technology lecturer Kevin Reeve facilitates the course. A textbook, Sams Teach Yourself Web Publishing with HTML and XHTML in 21 Days, by Laura Lemay, is required to complete some of the units.

Course materials include online lecture notes and tutorial videos. If you're interested in taking this course, visit the learning HTML course page.
