Acerca del Curso

Thanks to a growing number of software programs, it seems as if anyone can make a webpage. But what if you actually want to understand how the page was created? There are great textbooks and online resources for learning web design, but most of those resources require some background knowledge. This course is designed to help the novice who wants to gain confidence and knowledge. We will explore the theory (what actually happens when you click on a link on a webpage?), the practical (what do I need to know to make my own page?), and the overlooked (I have a page, what do I do now?). Throughout the course there will be a strong emphasis on adhering to syntactic standards for validation and semantic standards to promote wide accessibility for users with disabilities. The textbook we use is available online, “The Missing Link: An Introduction to Web Development and Programming” by Michael Mendez from This course will appeal to a wide variety of people, but specifically those who would like a step-by-step description of the basics. There are no prerequisites for this course and it is assumed that students have no prior programming skills or IT experience. The course will culminate in a small final project that will require the completion of a very simple page with links and images. The focus of this course is on the basics, not appearance. You can see a sample final page at This is the first course in the Web Design For Everybody specialization. Subsequent courses focus on the marketable skills of styling the page with CSS3, adding interactivity with JavaScript and enhancing the styling with responsive design. You can see a sample site for the capstone course at

Exceptional course, taught by a friendly, talented teacher. Perfect introduction to HTML. While the course seems to be still under development (there is the odd typo or the like) it's a great start.

Amazing course. I knew nothing of coding before taking and now I feel confident to experiment on my own and learn much more. This paired with CSS and Java script gives you a huge foundation to start making a portfolio.

Colleen gave a well-paced and accessible intro to HTML. Course covers HTML5 and accessibility needs. More assignments and quizzes would have been helpful, but that's nothing you can't find on the web (free code camp).

It's an amazing course for learning basic HTML5. It teaches a lot about Web Accessibility as well. It helped me a lot learning new things and looking at the web in a different way. Also, the professor is amazing. :D

Great intro to HTML5! I liked learning the new tags and syntax, and I also liked learning about the validation tools. The instructor did a great job building accessibility best practices into the course materials.

This is a very good course for beginners. The presentation is well done, and it gets you set up to start coding html even if you know absolutely nothing beforehand. Following along is easy and examples are helpful.

When I first started this course I had little knowledge of HTML. this course was a very good experience for me. Thank you very much for providing us such a facility. I have applied to other courses you have opened.

This course was great even for someone who has a bit of coding background but was self-taught. It helped bridge a lot of gaps and understand the "why" more. The course was easy to follow and I enjoyed the lectures.

Just loved the way Colleen Mam taught this course. Being a chemical engineer with interest in arts, I always wanted to utilize my art skills in coding and this course provided me the opportunity. Thank you coursera

This course was truly an intro, which was what I needed. The professor broke down concepts and provided detailed examples. I had enough resources to be able to complete the assignments with very little frustration.

Colleen understands the struggles most of the students will have and addresses them in a effective manner. She explains the material in a way that is enlightening to novice and yet interesting to more experienced.

My only experience with any sort of computer programming was with simple BASIC on my Commodore 64 in the mid 1980's. I understood it, was comfortable with it, and was able to learn. That is really kind of huge.

I took another intro to HTML and although this course deals more in the theory of HTML and how to properly set up your webpage, it is a good course to get a great understanding on how to start your HTML career.

Great course for beginner, and for good choice for those who know a little about web and want to go through all the basic concepts again. The instructor explain concepts form tags to deployment clean and well.

Highly informative with clear examples to further illustrate each point taught in each lesson. It's really helpful to know more about cPanel and web hosting instead of figuring it out (the hard way) by myself.

Really good and introdutory, although i had previous contact with HTML it was also a great way of getting to know better HTML5 and its semantic. Beyond that, the focus on accessibility is an amazing feature.

A very good introduction to the HTML5 part of web development. Some parts of the course could have gone faster, but all in all I think I gained a very good understanding of the material from Prof van Lent.
