WebMASTER: Web Author Certificate

The Web Author course provides an introduction to the features of HTML5 such as relevant page layout tags, new HTML5 specific tags and form elements. Additionally, related technologies including geolocation, offline storage, drag and drop, canvas and CSS3 are covered, as these topics provide the foundation needed for the advanced concepts taught in the remaining courses of the WebMASTER certification series. Throughout this course, students will be taught the standards-based web design, such as location of CSS styles (external, internal inline), the CSS reset file role and how to create the basic layout structure using the CSS float and clear properties.  Establishing margins, padding with div elements, contextual selectors and using background images are also covered in this course.
