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.

This course is at a good pace for people new to web design. I learned fairly well through it. Colleen is an excellent lecturer and understands the initial processes of learning to teach the course well.

Great course for beginners. Especially useful if one wants to see how a website is correctly designed with accessibility in mind. I would recommend this one to many of the "old" web designers out there.

Perfect for someone who wants to start learning HTML5 and the entire specialization from scratch.

The course is well paced, starts off easy, and seriously takes you step by step into making a web-page.

Very easy to follow, yet so informative. I really feel I have gained enough skills to continue with studies on my own and maybe even further studies online. I am so excited to learn more! Thank you!

First course out of 5, so far so good! Definitely basic understanding of HTML but I was still able to learn a few new tricks I did not already know going into this.

Excited to see what's next in CSS!

Short and sweet !!!

I enjoyed learning the importance of semantics, as I am generally used to style the pages using free will.

The agenda which the instructor has is very optimistic and I like it ~~~

Whatever doubt you had with HTML5 tags and their proper usage (semantics and syntax alike), this course seals your previous knowledge to its needed cap for anything you want to learn afterwards.

Very useful course as for me. It teaches HTML5 syntax, explains the accessability principles, also provides additional information about how Internet works, how to post a website, and so on.

A very excellent start to HTML. Aside from the syntax, the instructor brings in brief histories of the evolution of HTML, best practice at designing websites and the topic of accessibility.
