SUNY Ulster Offers Web Development Education

This spring, SUNY Ulster’s Office of Continuing & Professional Education will be offering several noncredit courses to students and community members looking to start or further their careers in the Web Application Development field. The classes employ a project-based approach, providing hands-on experience for students that engage both their abilities to master topics and their creativity as they prepare for an innovative technology career.

LEARN TO BUILD A WEBSITE - PART I
Students are provided with a hands-on introduction to the universal architecture of the web. This course covers website construction with HTML5 and CSS, design and usability concepts, website hosting and administration. Students will learn how to build a simple, professional class website.

LEARN TO BUILD A WEBSITE - PART II
In this course, students will extend their knowledge of HTML5 and CSS in building multipage websites. Students will explore file structure and hierarchy, CSS strategies for managing multi-column layout, CSS drop-down menus, tables, forms and multimedia. Optional: Students who take Designing Your Business Website Content for Maximum Success can use their own business content from that course to develop their own professional multi-page website in this course.

This course is designed for JavaScript novices who have little or no experience with the language. Students will learn the structure of JavaScript - variables, scope, control flow and functions.
