Course Description

Want to learn how to create webpages, but feeling intimidated by HTML and CSS? Not sure where to start? Step-by-step HTML and CSS for Absolute Beginners is a comprehensive and friendly course designed for beginners with NO previous coding or programming experience.
  • HTML (HyperText Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) are the building blocks of the web. If you've ever looked at a website, you've seen HTML and CSS in action!

Whether you want to make changes to your website's template, create new webpages from scratch, or just understand what you're doing when you cut-and-paste embed codes from sites like YouTube or SlideShare understanding HTML and CSS makes it possible.

My name is Kathleen, and I've been teaching technology to beginners under the moniker Robobunnyattack! since 2009. I believe that with the right approach, anyone can learn anything. My goal in this course is to help you develop an intuitive understanding of how HTML and CSS work. In this course, we'll create a simple "Coming Soon" webpage using valid HTML5 and CSS3 code. As we work together, I'll explain WHY the code we write looks the way it does. I'll point out the simple patterns in the code, so you can learn more quickly and with more confidence. As we build our webpage, we'll cover:
  • What tools you need to write HTML and CSS, and how to use them
  • How to use HTML to organize and manage the content of your webpage
  • How to use CSS to control the presentation or "look" of your webpage
  • How web publishing works, and how to get your HTML and CSS files from your computer onto the web
  • How to use lots of other helpful and free web building tools, including code validators, free icon libraries, color scheme generators and more

By the end of this course, you'll be able to use HTML and CSS with confidence, following best practices every step of the way.

excellent teaching. i love this course. It teach me a lot about about i did not know.

This course has a good pace and is split up into reasonably sized sections. The speaker's voice inflections make the lecture easy to follow and to stay engaged. Concepts are explained in concise detail and in a relatable way without drifting into tangents.

Nice and clear and she has a great voice for teaching. Loved the course!

I loved the course. As a beginner sometimes I would like to have more explanation about covered functions but generally the couse is great and easy for understanding.

This class was informative, BUT....when I purchased it I was not told it was recorded in 2012!! I would NOT have spent my money on this course.

For a beginner, this course was meticulously structured, and explained in detail. It was very engaging, and fun!

Very clear and well articulated examples of not just what is in play, but the background of WHY we need to do what is required

Never purchased a course online before and never knew anything about html and css before this course. after a few weeks of slowly doing this course I have now have an ability to create a website using html and css I will forever be grateful for this as it will change my life! a massive thank you!! :)

It is designed for beginners in HTML and CSS, and the contents in this course really follows through that purpose.

The teacher is awesome in her explanations. She has mastery of the course and i am enjoying it so much. I never regretted going in for this course. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to delve into the IT world. It is really a good start.

There could have been more resources provided. I needed to learn to create and email blast and don't know that after spending the time learning, taking notes and creating a template whether what I have will even work. There was not discussion that I recall recall this was only for a webpage design or email, etc. A beginner would need this knowledge.The plus side was the teaching was fairly straight forward and clear. I enjoyed at the instructor.

Het voldoet aan mijn verwachtingen, alleen is de stof licht gedateerd op sommige punten
