There are over a billion websites on the Internet, yet only a handful are widely visited. So what makes websites like Google and YouTube, so popular? The simple answers are usability, utility, and engagement. In Web Dev Foundations, students will learn to think like web developers. By utilizing industry standards like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, students learn how to format code and where to place the main features of a web page in order to attract and hold a users’ attention.

The course begins by teaching HTML and CSS, so students can start building their websites right away. Students move on to learning best design practices and how to develop a site that meets the demands of a variety of users, and then move on to the basics of JavaScript.

By the end of the course, students will have created their own engaging, functional website built with all three fundamental coding languages.

  • Apply the fundamentals of web development to design a website
  • Code and design a series of mini websites using HTML and CSS
  • Learn the basics of JavaScript to create a dynamic website
  • Create a static website on a topic of your choosing
  • Develop a dynamic, web-based Mad Libs program using JavaScript
  • Complete a final website designed with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
