Course Description

Adobe Muse CC is the newest addition to Adobe's web design programs. Unlike Dreamweaver, which requires knowing a lot of code, Muse CC is a WYSIWYG (or what you see is what you get) design editor. Most tasks that you complete in Muse CC are done with a drag and drop of a mouse. You don't have to know how to write a word of code to successfully use this program to create personal or business websites, ecommerce sites or educational sites, as well as small or large sites. 

For those wanting to learn how to use Muse CC, this course will teach you:

·    How to create a website

·    How to plan out a website

·    The basics of optimizing your website

·    How to create a layout for webpages and your entire site

·    How to add elements to your web pages, including colors, text, images, and more

·    How to add advanced features to your website including special effects and widgets

·    How to add social media to your website, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube

·    How to publish your website to the Internet

·    And much more!

This course will teach you how to use Muse CC to design websites. It doesn't matter if you have experience using Muse CC.   It also doesn't matter if you've ever designed a website before.   This course will start at the beginning, teaching you what you need to know about web design and graphics so you get the most out of designing websites using Muse.
 

There are dozens of web design programs available on the Internet today.  These programs vary in difficulty, from WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors for those people with little to no experience to more complicated programs for professional web designers.   What program you choose to use when you want to design a website will depend on your experience level and your knowledge of code such as HTML and CSS. 

For years now, Adobe has arguably produced the best graphic and web design software programs. Whereas Microsoft has the market cornered on software programs pertaining to data, Adobe certainly is the master of all things graphic.   The popularity of their programs has even contributed to new words in the English language. How many times have you heard, "I bet that picture was photoshopped?"   Of course, Photoshop is a photo editing program made by Adobe.

That said, Muse CC is a newer program created by Adobe. Muse CC is a web design program, as is Adobe Dreamweaver.   However, while Adobe Dreamweaver is for the person who is more experienced with web design and writing code, Muse CC is for the amateur.   You don't need to know how to write code to use Muse CC.   In fact, you won't see a bit of code the entire time you use the program.  

Instead, Muse CC is a WYSIWYG editor. Most of the web designing you'll do in Muse CC is nothing more than drag and drop. In other words, it's easy as most WSIWYG editors are.   However, since Muse CC is from Adobe, you can expect the amazing bells and whistles that make it great.   Just as Photoshop is ten steps ahead of other photo editing programs, you'll find that Muse CC is one of the best (if not the best) WSIWYG editor on the market today.  

What You Can Do with Muse CC

Muse CC is a web design program, which means that you can use Muse CC to create websites by allowing you to easily design pages for a website.   Muse can be used to create personal or business websites, ecommerce sites or educational sites, as well as small or large sites. Whatever type of site you want to create, you can use Muse CC to create it.

However, there are a few things to keep in mind when using Muse CC so you are not disappointed. Since it is a WSIWYG editor, it is intended for those who want a simple program or don't know how to write code. If you want to create a fancy website and add a lot of your own code to your pages, then Adobe Dreamweaver will probably be the better program for you. Muse CC is simple. It makes designing websites easy – and even fun. Plus, the websites you create using Muse CC can look just as attractive and professional as any website you could design using Dreamweaver or any other web design program.   Muse CC just makes it (again) easier.

About this Course

This course was designed to teach you how to use Muse CC to design websites. It doesn't matter if you have experience using Muse CC.   It also doesn't matter if you've ever designed a website before.   This course will start at the beginning, teaching you what you need to know about web design and graphics so you get the most out of designing websites using Muse.  

After that, we'll delve into the Muse program. However, we'll start at the very beginning with that as well so that every lesson in this course becomes a building block for the one that follows.   By the end of the course, you'll have designed at least the first page of your website if you want.   You'll be surprised at how easy it was – and how professional your page looks.

The course is taught using step by step instructions, followed by exercises and assignments at the end of each lesson.   Lesson exercises consist of questions to quiz you on what you learned.   These exercises are mandatory for all students in order to successfully complete the course. Lesson assignments also follow each lesson, but these are optional for all students. Lesson assignments take what you learned in the recent lesson and put them to work as you design your own website.
