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

Loved the course. The web hosting and accessibility makes this course much useful which leads to greatest benefit for me. I have done this course from other resources also but this was my favorite. Thank you so much Michigan University for providing such an amazing course.

This was a very helpful and informative course. Even if you know html somewhat, there are many more things that you'll learn such as understanding, and so also about what all tools and sites and other things you can use to help you be a smarter web developer in the future.

I really liked this introduction to HTML5, it was accessible, fun and the teacher added very interesting side topics (on accessibility, web history, etc.). If you take this course seriously, you will have strong basis in HTML5 and will be able to create your own web pages.

Colleen mam is just amazing. Her way of teaching is just so fun. She teaches every point in an entertaining manner which keeps our attention until the course ends. I got a lot of new things to learn and I will surely apply all these in my own projects. Thank you, mam! :-)

I got more out of this course than I expected to and it was effective in introducing me into the basics of HTML5. Our instructor, Colleen van Lent did a fantastic job of explaining the content and encouraging the class to study and practice individually and collectively.

It was such a valuable course. Although we are familiar with html , the proper method and value of semantics are very well explained. I thank the tutor and the university along with coursera for providing such a wonderful opportunity. looking forward to learn css3 now.

Its an excellent course who want to start learning web design in depth. I already knew few things about the HTML language but this course made me realise the importance of different semantic tags and how to use use them efficiently to make our website more accessible.

Simple to follow with many extended resources. The instructor is a strong communicator and also offers passionate advocacy for accessibility which is helpful, and a nice part of the course experience. A very good way to get started from some or no prior experience.

It is a very practical and useful course. Colleen van Lent presents it in such a way by using loads of examples that it is very easy to understand and remember. She is right about the fact that you can only learn it by trying and not being afraid of making mistakes.

I am really satisfied with this course and feel like I have learned a lot enough about HTML to get started on other languages. The content and the teacher are really accessible and make it enjoyable to learn those new concepts. Looking forward to learning more!

Excellent. Colleen was so great and explained everything in a way that was really easy to understand. I loved it so much I completed the three week course in 11 days. I'd recommend this course to anyone who knows nothing at all about coding and wants to start.

Honestly the best course on Coursera I've ever had. Thank you for inspiring me to code every day. It gave a push to make every single day into the interesting one. I hope the rest of the courses of this specialization will be adorable as much as this course.

Dr Colleen Van Lent is an eye opener! I first did CSS3 before coming to HTML5. I did HTML5 because I felt like there are somethings I did not quite know right about html. so taking the course opened my eyes to a WHOLE lot i never knew about. Thank you Colleen

Good intro to HTML.

One problem is that quizzes lock after the course ends. Obviously, changing results after the end of the course is undesirable, but the ability to look through tests at at later date would be nice. I think this is a Coursera problem though.

This class is the perfect way to get familiar with HTML. I was completely inexperienced. After just the first two weeks, I feel like I have some understanding of code and how it works. If you are just starting out with code, this class is the way to begin!
