Course Description

HTML5 is the latest standard in web application coding. Whether you're a new or seasoned web designer, you need to know the latest in HTML architecture. HTML5 standards bring several new tags, including tags that enhance media and animations. Instead of clunky Flash applications, you use the canvas tag. Instead of embedding third-party software for users to view video or audio, you can use the video and audio tags. These are just a few of the new tags available to you.

This course teaches you the basics of HTML5 including the latest in CSS styling. We discuss basic syntax and move forward to more advanced features such as JavaScript with animations, CSS3 and media queries, and styling with some of the new HTML5 tags. We don't just discuss HTML5, but we also tell you how to perform actual design elements using embedded CSS classes. We also discover the latest form field tags that make gathering information and input from your users much easier.

We start with a simple HTML5 web page and end with a list of miscellaneous tags that are new in HTML5. We also give you a list of several deprecated tags that are no longer in use. You can still use them in HTML5 website design, but deprecated functionality often gets dropped eventually. If you're new to HTML5 or just want to extend your web design knowledge, this lesson gives you a step-by-step tutorial to bring you up to speed with the latest in web application architecture and standards.
