This lesson covers the course structure and the big picture goals and core learning objectives. Additionally, it also includes the expectations that you can have from what is covered in the content as projects, as well as what an overview of what is expected of you in order to get the most from participating.
In this course, you’ll develop principles of web design and development. You’ll practice the basics of two core web technologies, HTML and CSS, as well as how to interact with clients.
There are several core technology skills that this course covers:
Throughout this course, you’re expected to actively practice the content. The lessons don’t often contain step-by-step activities. Instead, the lessons are a resource to get you started. Learning how to self-learn is central to this course. You’re expected to work through the content and practice the skills presented in each lesson.
There will be times that you may get stuck. Consider asking your peers! If you know an answer (or even a solid next step or direction for someone who is stuck) share that with your peers! There is no expectation that you’ll be an expert on the content, especially if this is completely new to you.
One of the most exciting aspects of technology, and especially web development, is that it’s always changing. This means that learning how to learn is crucial. The expectation is that you actively try to solve problems as you encounter them and that you share your progress and knowledge with other learners.
All the skills developed throughout this course lead to the capstone project.
The capstone project is an open-ended demonstration of the core skills developed throughout the course.
