Our Web Development course has been our best-selling course in our company for many years. NextGen has award-winning web textbooks, teachers, and resources. In this program, students will be taught how to build and design the front and back-end of websites. This course is a great introduction to design and coding because HTML/CSS is one of the easiest coding languages to learn. This course then progresses into a more advanced language in JavaScript. Furthermore, students will be introduced Sketch, a designed tool for Mac OS. This course will test both the student’s creative side of his/her brain as well as his/her technical side of the brain.

This course will show a student the processes of creating a website from scratch. The course will start by introducing students to Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). This is a standard language that allows coders to tag text files, to choose fonts, colors, graphics, images, and more onto websites.

This course will cover the design of websites which includes learning CSS & Sketch. CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets and it is a style language used in conjunction with HTML for page layouts, colors, and fonts. Sketch is a digital design application that can be used for user interface design for web, mobile, and infographics. Finally, students will be introduced to JavaScript which is the most used programming language in the world! This allows students to make the websites dynamic. In conclusion, students should think of HTML as learning how to structure the silhouette of the websites, CSS/Sketch as the style and design of the site, and finally the JavaScript as a final feature to make your website more appealing and active. Once all of these parts come together, students will see the power of all these languages and tools! Students should leave the class with a beautiful, reactive website.
