Website Design and Management
This course extends your web design and development skills and includes advanced HTML techniques and enhanced page design capabilities using CSS. The key to great web design is rooted in a solid foundation, which requires a plan or a “blueprint.” We will explore best practices in information architecture (IA) and how to incorporate user-centered design (UCD) techniques as a standard practice in web design. Students will also develop an understanding and working knowledge of Cascading Style Sheets. Through the use of readings, examples, hands-on projects, and discussions, the class will build an understanding of the foundations and applications of user-centered design to plan, build, and manage a website. Through participation in a project and regular discussions, class members will experience working as active and contributing members of the class and knowledge-building community. Recommended prerequisite: ICT 4300.
