Web Design is a hands-on applications course. In TAWEBDN 1A, the
first half of the Web Design course, we will explore networks, the
Internet, and the World Wide Web. We’ll learn about issues such as
copyright law, basic computer and other general technology skills,
communications skills, Web server information, style sheets, and the
fundamentals of building and designing Web pages with HTML that meet the
current standards. (In TAWEBDN 1B, the second half of Web Design, we’ll
take a look at forms, advanced cascading style sheets, multimedia,
integrating JavaScript and HTML, and other advanced topics.)
