Course Description

Adobe Dreamweaver is a web design program that gives even the most amateur web designer the ability to create stunning web pages fairly quickly and easily. You don't have to know HTML or any other programming language to be able to use Dreamweaver. Like other WYSIWYG editors (What You See Is What You Get), you can simply type and paste text and other images onto the screen and let Dreamweaver write the code for you. 

Whether this is your first time using Dreamweaver or you've used it in the past, this course will walk you through the program step-by-step and teach you how to use its many features and options to create web pages.  

You'll learn how to:
  • Create web pages using predesigned layouts or by creating your own
  • Design web pages for mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers
  • Add text, mages, and other elements to your pages
  • Embed or link to audio or video files from your page, including from YouTube, Vimeo, and SoundCloud
  • Recognize and write basic HTML for your pages – even though you don't have to
  • Create and use HTML tables
  • Use CSS to apply styles to your pages and site, and also to create interactive features
  • Add forms to your web pages for visitors to fill out
  • Publish your website to the web
  • And much more!

Like most Adobe programs, Dreamweaver can seem more complicated than it really is because of all the additional options and features that it offers. This course was designed to simplify the program for you and to give you the knowledge you need to easily create a professional looking website using Dreamweaver.
