Product Description:

The cool thing about web design is that it is handy skill regardless of your child's future career path. Whether they start their own business or work for a Fortune 500 company, a firm grasp of web programming and design is sure to give them an edge over individuals who do not. This online course was created for students without any prior web design knowledge and will give them a good knowledge of HTML, XHTML, HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. It contains two previously published courses (Beginning & Advanced Web Design), and combines them into a single year-long online course.

When you purchase an online course, you will receive one pair of teacher/student coupon codes, which you can then activate on CompuScholar (please note that one-year subscriptions start when course is activated). The student has access to lessons, online text and quizzes and the teacher has separate access to a teacher guide, answers, and solutions.

Beginning Web Design starts with the very basics. The student will learn what the internet is, how it works, and how URLs, mark-up language, and browsers function. Chapter lessons provide a lot of information, although it is very readable, friendly and is accompanied by screen-shots, tables, and graphics. Eager fingers will then hit the keyboard with the Work with Me step-by-step assignments and Your Turn activities which reinforce the information in the lesson. In a truly hands-on approach, students start on their first web site by the end of Chapter 3! As students progress, they apply the concepts they have learned to this ever-developing example web site featuring birds of prey. By the end of Beginning Web Design, theyll be ready to jump the nest themselves, creating their own website (on a topic of their choice) for the final project. Don't let the Advanced title on the second course scare you; it is just the next step. Chapter One starts with a quick refresher on HTML and CSS, then covers HTML5, headers and footers, adding video and audio content, learning CSS3, relationship selectors, dynamic menus, JavaScript, and dynamic pages all while building a website on sea creatures. Wow, at this point, I really want to use this course! It looks so approachable compared to the other basic web design books gathering dust on my shelf! This one is a solid choice whether your student is naturally tech-savvy or not. ~ Jess

Every lesson has a matching animated and narrated video which covers the same concepts as the lesson.

Category Description for CompuScholar Courses:

Learning to program may seem daunting, but CompuScholar (formerly Homeschool Programming), has created courses that make it understandable and approachable. Anyone with average computer skills can work through these courses. One of the most helpful things about this series is that each thing you do is represented with pictures of what your program looks like, without being too simplistic. The introductions are very informational; anything you could have trouble with is neatly outlined. Another handy feature is that it doesnt force you into any complicated situations; it follows a very logical step-by-step tutorial for ease of learning. Another great thing is that all the methods, variables, and "techy things" are introduced as you use them, making it all much easier to follow and remember.

All courses are 1-year subscriptions to online course content. When you purchase an online course, you will receive one pair of teacher/student coupon codes, which you can then activate on CompuScholar (please note that one-year subscriptions start when course is activated). Each course is designed to be used with one student. Additional student licenses may be purchased directly from CompuScholar after the initial course code has been activated.

The online format offers several nice features including full-color lesson texts, streaming instructional videos, auto-graded quizzes and tests, and an electronic gradebook. Another advantage includes the ability for the publisher to make immediate updates, ensuring that all students have up-to-date information. The instructional videos are an integral part of the program.

Course topics available include: computer fundamentals (Digital Savvy), web design, Windows programming, game programming, Java programming and Android Programming. This is a good self-study starter series for anyone wanting to begin a hobby or looking at a career in programming.
