HTML and CSS are the heart of the web. If you aren't comfortable with them, your ability to design web sites and create web content is severely limited.
Even if you depend on others to do much of the technical work for you, your understanding of the web and your ability to evolve sites that you've designed will improve dramatically when you have a good grasp of these two key technologies.
By the end of this course, you'll be comfortable writing HTML and doing simple styling with CSS. And you'll be up-to-date on the latest HTML5 and CSS3 techniques.
When you sign up for the full course package, you'll get access to the Course Portal, with all four hours of lessons for each of the three courses: 12 hours total. You can watch the recordings at your own pace, and download the slides and sample code files so you can follow along.
You'll also be invited to join an online group, where the instructors will answer questions.
This class is intended for anyone who may know a little HTML and CSS, but is not an experienced HTML coder. If you can recognize an <h1> tag and a <p> tag, you have the prerequisites for this class.
People with a modest amount of HTML experience will find some of the material to be a review, and can reinforce that knowledge while learning about the latest (but production-ready) features in HTML5 and CSS3.
“Webvanta‘s online HTML5/CSS3 course gave a practical look into the current markup languages that was essential to me as a web designer. They gave instruction with application in mind, rather than spending time on general theory, which I appreciated.”

“Great overview of some of the key technologies needed for website development; saved me lots of time by focusing on mainstream, best-practice approaches to solving these problems, with an emphasis on where things are headed. Delivered in a friendly, interactive, right-paced manner with lots of straightforward coding samples from accomplished professionals.”
— John Henel
“The Design for the Mobile Web course was excellent. The clear and concise examples showed how, why and when to build web apps versus a fully native app, how to structure user interfaces for different devices, and how
to optimize the app to target devices.”
— Dave Corbin
“These courses helped to focus my attention on those areas I want to learn more about, and those I don't ... which is just as important! The combination of live instruction, slides, and recorded archives with sample files made for a comprehensive course that is typical of Webvanta's thorough and quality approach to everything they do.”
