Projects in Web Design Course

Project1: Create a personal or business website

Using the skills obtained from our web design course, we will build a simple layout website using HTML and CSS.

You will learn how to use DIVs and CSS avoiding tables for layouts; you will learn the importance of a clean and well formatted code. This project involves many stages from planning, team work, and designing, testing and launching your website.
