Week 1

Welcome to the HTML Toolbox class blog and syllabus. Here you find the course syllabus, schedule, and policies, as the semester progresses challenges, your final project, resources and examples will be posted. Be sure you have the Zen of CSS Design: visual enlightenment for the web by Dave Shea and Molly E. Holzchlag.

Today we will do a quick HTML & CSS review then transition to a mini experiment, which I will hand out, and time to begin work on your home page. Before class is over register for a user account to use this class blog.

This semester your home page must include the following:

  • your name
  • email address
  • short design statement (150 to 250 words)
  • photo of yourself
  • gallery of 5 or more images of projects from other classes
  • images should have a caption describing their size purpose and title
  • plan for future navigation that points to experiments, challenges, small projects and your final project.
