Duration: 110 hours

The Web Design Specialist course (formerly titled Design Methodology and Technology) teaches you how to design and publish Web sites. General topics include Web Site Development Essentials (such as the site development process, customer expectations, and ethical and legal issues in Web development), Web Design Elements (such as aesthetics, the site user’s experience, navigation, usability and accessibility), Basic Web Technologies (such as basic Hypertext Markup Language [HTML], Extensible HTML [XHTML] and extended technologies, image files, GUI site development applications, site publishing and maintenance) and Advanced Web Technologies (such as multimedia and plug-in technologies, client-side and server-side technologies, and Web databases).
In this course, you will work with popular production tools such as Microsoft Expression Web, and Adobe Dreamweaver and Flash. You will study design and development technologies such as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), Extensible Markup Language (XML), JavaScript, Java applets, Dynamic HTML, plug-ins, multimedia and databases. You will also explore the extensibility of design tools, incompatibility issues surrounding these tools, and the functionality of current Web browsers.
Web Design Specialist will also teach you to manage the Web site development process. You will learn about new technologies and traditional strategies involving the Web designer job role. Throughout this course, you will learn how Web sites are developed as managed projects, relate Web site development to business goals, and apply guidelines for user accessibility to Web site development. You will also consider site design from several perspectives. You will approach design from the Web user’s perspective so that you can identify with user interests and needs. You will also assume the roles of Web designer and project manager, as you work through the Web site development process by evolving a Web presence site into a working prototype Web project. Hands-on labs include real-world scenarios based on a previously live version of the Habitat for Humanity International Web site. Note that students will build prototype pages using Habitat for Humanity content. This content is provided by Habitat for Humanity with permission to use it in labs teaching site development skills. The prototype pages that students build do not necessarily represent, duplicate or simulate the current live Habitat for Humanity Web site, which can be visited at www.habitat.org.
