Curriculum for the course HTML Programming & Web Design
This HTML and web design course consists of altogether ten units designed to cover one semester of about sixteen hours of lecture. The course covers both HTML and CSS programming providing a continuous progression with units building up on each other.
Each unit consists of a theoretical part introducing the new study material by means of a PowerPoint presentation along with a PDF handout for the students. Each theoretical part also features short revision questions (usually 6 questions) for the students to revise the learned content.
The related practical part helps the students use the theoretical elements in practice giving them instructions to program a sample web page with the learned elements. The programming assignment includes a screenshot of the final website and the programming instructions, clearly structured into 25 – 30 individual instructions.
The HTML programming solution for the teacher is provided together with the practical exercise. Files are provided as PDFs as well as DOCX files so the teacher is able to make personal modifications.
The course is unique in its concept and sophisticated interaction between theoretical and practical parts as appropriate HTML teaching material with a reasonable progression and sufficiently demanding practical exercises for learners is hardly available. The material does not only target students specializing in web design but is comprehensible for students of all fields, also without previous technical knowledge of programming languages.
