Welcome to J105 spring 2014

You found the class blog for J105 Web Page Design.

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 a digital producer 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.
