PC Web Design Basics 1 and 2 
Great introduction to the basics of HTML and CSS as a way to create and edit Web sites. In this class we cover Web design principles and concepts, file management, image placement, color schemes, and design layouts. Use photo editing utilities to optimize images for the Web. Even if you use online services to create Web sites, knowing the code will help you customize template-driven pages. We will create a small web site using images, links, lists, tables, divs, and css. Topics include layout and design constraints and considerations, accessibility issues, color schemes, copyright, usability, and web hosting. Concepts apply to both Mac and PC platforms.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
