DTP – Desktop Publishing

  • Start date: April 27, 2015
  • ID: 14

This course is designed for beginning web designers, and starts from the assumption that the student has not ever coded a web page. It would also be a good course for a designer who is self-taught, and who feels as though there are gaps in their fundamental knowledge. By the end of this course, the student will be able to create a basic website that is standards compliant and validates when run through the XHTML code validator at the W3c site, and which uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for the page formatting. It also provides a good foundation for the more advanced courses.
