Beyond HTML, the next step is to add interactivity and involve your visitors in your website. Begin with essential programming fundamentals, and progress onto writing complete scripts. Develop interactive content and validate form information. This course covers valid syntax, Document Object Model and script integration. HTML & CSS knowledge is required.
You should have reasonable experience in using Microsoft Windows or an Apple Macintosh computer, with the ability to perform simple tasks using a word processing program and use the internet to view web pages and send emails. You must have a basic knowledge of HTML & CSS (as covered in the Web Design 1 course) and have a good understanding of English and simple maths.
Explanations, demonstrations, discussions, tasks and lots of hands on practise.
To gain the maximum benefit, you should read recommended books and websites, and practice the topics covered during the class each week – the more you practice, the faster your skills will improve. You should try and spend at least an hour per week of revision and putting the skills learned in the classroom into practice, and will need to complete weekly homework assignments. Computer access is available at Study Support sessions at Macbeth centre, or at your local library.
Informal, and continuous classroom assessment by task. Informal feedback but tasks will help you decide what else you need to learn or practise. The tutor will provide homework and specific tasks to assess your progress. There will be regular opportunities to review your progress throughout the course.
Continue to develop your web design skills on your own or enrol on one of the follow-on web courses such as: HTML5 & CSS3, to create responsive website designs; PHP/MySQL beginners or advanced, to create dynamic, database-driven websites. You may also want to join a Photoshop course to learn how to prepare effective images for web page use.
You may wish to get additional help and guidance offered through the free Study Support Sessions at the Macbeth Centre. At these sessions you can access the internet, work on and print homework and assignments for your course, research, access a range of software, improve your typing and practice/review what you have covered in class. You will need to book a place on these sessions – ask your tutor how. Help with literacy or numeracy is available through the basic education programme and the ESOL programme offers help for speakers of other languages. Additional support can be provided for students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. If you have a disability and feel you need support to get the best from your course you can contact Sean Buckley (firstname.lastname@example.org) to have a confidential discussion on how best we can support your learning. The Learner Support Fund is a discretionary scheme, funded by the Skills Funding Agency, to assist learners who may be experiencing difficulties in paying for essential equipment/materials, travel costs, childcare, registration fees and other necessary expenses. These funds are only available to learners studying towards an approved qualification and who are on a low household income of under £20,000. Parental income will not be taken into consideration but the income of any spouse or partner will. Proof of low income will be required. Please discuss this with your tutor at interview or enquire at reception for full details of these funds. Details of all available support can be found on our website (hfals.co.uk), in the Guide and the Student handbook, or from teaching or reception staff.
