Welcome to Web Design for fall 2012

Welcome to a new semester of J105: Web Page Design at Drake University.

In the first few weeks of class, you will learn to create web pages using HTML and CSS. After that, we will turn our attention to creating websites using the Wordpress content management system. You'll purchase a domain, create a site, create content for that site and modify the design of the site using your HTML and CSS skills.

Along the way, we'll learn about the skills required to be an online editor at a media site (search engine optimization, analytics, social media, etc.)

This blog will be a place to share information for the class. I will post assignments, important information and questions here.

Basic class info can be found using the links above.

Take a minute to join our class Facebook group. We will use that for class discussions throughout the semester.
