Web Design

Learn how to design and build websites.

Approved by the New York State Department of Education, Noble Desktop’s Certificate in Web Design program covers everything a student needs to build modern websites. Students get 96 hours of intensive instruction starting with HTML and CSS, slicing graphics in Fireworks, and continuing with more advanced CSS, through the latest in HTML5/CSS3, JavaScript and jQuery, and even mobile web design. Once completed students will end with a comprehensive understanding of front-end web design and development allowing them to make their own great-looking modern websites (or work on anyone else’s!).

The cost for the seven courses comprising the Certificate in Web Design would normally be $5200 if taken separately. However, we offer the complete program at a special price of $4000. If students have previously taken one or more of the courses in the program, they can finish the program and a discount will be offered so that the final price to complete the program is $4000 or less. If students have equivalent experience in any of the programs above, our standard discounts will be applied to other courses necessary to complete the certificate.

Recommended Class Order

Web Development Level 1: Build Sites with HTML & CSS

Learn More

Jump in and start learning how to build websites. You’ll hand code HTML and CSS from scratch so you understand what the code means and how to write it. In class you will create multi-page websites with text, images, forms, and more... all styled with CSS. You’ll upload your files using FTP to make the site live, and walk out of class ready to build your first site.

Fireworks

Learn More

Adobe Fireworks is a powerful web graphics editor, letting you design entire webpages, slice images, build animated GIFs, and manage web graphics of all sorts. In this class you will learn how to design a web page from scratch, create rollover effects, slice graphics, and optimize them as JPEG, PNG and GIF, and more.

Web Development Level 2: Dive Deeper Into CSS

Learn More

In our Level 1 course we teach the fundamentals of CSS, but there is so much more it can do! In this course you’ll learn how to use CSS positioning to create more sophisticated layouts. You will create center-aligned and multi-column pages using relative positioning and floats. You’ll learn how inline versus block elements work, create CSS rollovers, and much more.

JavaScript & jQuery

Learn More

Learning JavaScript code gives you the power to write your own scripts or use freely available JavaScript frameworks, including the industry standard: jQuery. In this class you will get hands-on experience writing real, working code. You’ll learn how to create animated slideshows with transitions such as fades or slides, create animated image enlargers, show/hide additional content and more.

HTML5 & CSS3: What’s New

Learn More

Deepen and broaden your ability to structure page content with new HTML5 semantic elements and experience the magic of native audio and video support. With CSS3, you’ll create drop shadows, text shadow, rounded corners, elements with semi-transparency, and gradient backgrounds using only CSS. You’ll even produce simple animated effects without JavaScript or Flash (we don’t cover full-blown ad banner style animation in this class though).

Mobile & Responsive Web Design

Learn More

Make your websites work with mobile devices, tablets, and desktop computers. In this class you will code a complete mobile site, as well as a responsive site. Responsive web design uses media queries to detect a device's screen size and adjust accordingly. You'll learn how to optimize sites for faster downloading on mobile devices by using CSS3 instead of graphics, how to deal with Retina graphics, CSS media queries, break points, new HTML5 form elements and more.

HTML Email

Learn More

HTML gives email personality—no wonder it has become a staple of advanced communications. Everyone can benefit from sending HTML email, whether it’s large corporations or small businesses and freelancers. This class will cover building and working with two different layouts: a simple one-time email and a weekly newsletter. You'll learn how to lay out emails, apply email-friendly CSS, make a table of contents, and fix various email client issues.
