Thanks to a growing number of software programs, it seems as if anyone can make a webpage. But what if you actually want to understand how the page was created? There are great textbooks and online resources for learning web design, but most of those resources require some background knowledge. This course is designed to help the novice who wants to gain confidence and knowledge. We will explore the theory (what actually happens when you click on a link on a webpage?), the practical (what do I need to know to make my own page?), and the overlooked (I have a page, what do I do now?). Throughout the course there will be a strong emphasis on adhering to syntactic standards for validation and semantic standards to promote wide accessibility for users with disabilities. The textbook we use is available online, “The Missing Link: An Introduction to Web Development and Programming” by Michael Mendez from www.opensuny.org.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO HTML5
The course was exceptionally good. Initially when I started the course ,I had no prior knowledge of HTML. But now I am able to make my own HTML projects. Thanks to the instructor and she nailed it.
I really enjoyed everything about this course. I thought the exercises/quizzes were fair and the instructor showed me many things that will serve me well going forward. Great course, great instructor!
It was fun and was very knowledge , its a wonderful coarse altogether , thank you Coursera ,
Unviersity of Michigan and special thanks to instructor Collen van Lent for being a wonderful teacher.
The course is a good starter, but it could do with more material allowing you to practice the skills presented each week rather than the self-driven approach, which could be done without the class.
