Courses - HTML 101
Description: Introduction to HTML
Running Time: 78 minutes
Pre-Requisites: No prior web design experience is required, however we do recommend you have taken our Internet 101 class first. Also, If you are planning to use Microsoft Frontpage to edit your web pages, we recommend Frontpage 101 before this class - although this is not required. Also, Word 101 will help you as well.
Versions:
We use basic text-based HTML in this course. For the student, it does not matter what operating system, HTML editor, or web browser you use, however, we will use Windows XP, Windows Notepad, and Microsoft Internet Explorer in class.
 
This class is for anyone who wants to learn how to design or edit web pages. Whether you've never edited a page before and want to learn HTML from the ground up, or you're currently using another editor like FrontPage and want to learn how to "tweak" your HTML, this course is perfect for you.

We will begin this class with a brief review of some of the Internet-related concepts and keywords we learned about in Internet 101. We will then learn some additional concepts related to HTML.

We'll then take a look at how to view the HTML source behind any web page, and we'll talk about the different components of HTML. We'll learn about the different tags that make up an HTML page, like the <BODY> and <HTML> tags.

Next, we'll discuss HTML editors, and which kind of editor you should use. We'll use Windows Notepad for our editor in class, so we'll load up Notepad and take a look at it. We'll type up a real short example web page, and then show you how hypertext tags work.

We'll look at some of the more important tags you can use in your pages, such as the TITLE tag which sets your page title, and is very important for search engine placement.

We'll learn about properly formatting your page with paragraph breaks, line breaks, horizontal lines, and more.

You will learn how various techniques for formatting your page, text, and paragraphs... like how to horizontally align your paragraphs.

We'll talk about Header tags, and why they're important.

Next, we'll spend some time learning all about hyperlinks. You'll learn how to create external hyperlinks to other web sites.

You will create internal links to pages in your web site.

And, you will make mailto links to send email to people.

You will learn how to properly manage your web site files in folders, and how to organize them.

Next, we'll learn all about putting graphics and images in your web pages. You'll learn how to insert an image, resize the image, change the alignment of the image, and how to make text wrap around it. We'll even teach you how to make the image a hyperlink, and adjust it's border size.

Next, we'll cover all kinds of ways to edit your text. We'll show you a bunch of text formatting tags, and teach you how to bold, italicize, underline, strikeout, superscript, subscript, and more...

You'll learn how to change your text font, font size, and color.

We'll also show you how to change the background color of your page.

You will learn how to create bulleted and numbered lists.

Finally, we'll discuss using FTP to upload your files up to your web server. We'll also talk about how to edit your HTML in FrontPage, and the benefits involved.

Again, whether you're trying to learn how to make web pages from scratch, or just want to learn how to edit HTML, this course is the perfect start. We'll cover additional HTML tags and techniques in HTML 102.
