About this course

Skip About this course

This course is part of W3C's "Front-End Web Developer" Professional Certificate.

Learn the basic building blocks of Web design and style – HTML5 and CSS – to give your site a professional look and feel. We guide you step-by-step in how to use the latest Web standards to create a site to be proud of.

By the end of the course, you should understand all the fundamental elements – from headers and links to images and sidebars – and leave having built a basic framework for your own Web site.

This course has been initially developed by Dale A. Schouten, Anusha Muthiah and Christopher Perkins, as part of a partnership between W3C and Intel®.
