The Webmaster Web Design Course takes the student step-by-step through the construction of a complete website from the very basics of Website design teaching the HTML programming language and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

During the course, the student will enjoy the creative experience of developing multi-media web pages and will also learn to use specialised products such as Adobe Flash, Dreamweaver & Photoshop and ShopFactory Pro, gradually building on the experience and ultimately designing and creating a high quality professional website of their own.

Using innovative, interactive, multi-media CBT techniques and supported by a personal course tutor, the web design course is self-paced with no time pressure for completion; the student simply studies at home or at work when time permits.

The training programme consists of 10 interactive lessons, provided on DVD ROM, each of which is divided into a number of related topics. The student is able to easily navigate between lessons and topics, and bookmarks can be inserted to facilitate the resumption of the programme from the previous exit point.

Each lesson is finished with a set assignment and there are many additional exercises to complete along the way which help to give a thorough understanding of the course content. A template of the fictional SuperNova corporate Website is also included as a guide on how to design your own Website.
