This is the first in a two-part series of HTML5 courses.

HTML5 introduces a new way of thinking about designing web pages. It has several advanced features, and provides the ability to design web pages that work on different browsers. Get introduced to the next generation of HTML and discover how it can improve an organization's web presence. Plus, learn how to make your web pages mobile-ready.

Develop an understanding of the evolution of HTML, and discuss design-related concepts. Focus on new elements, attributes and forms capabilities. Advanced development concepts are further explored in HTML5 APIs.

This course can be taken individually or as part of the Web Certificate Programs.
