Course Description

The Webmaster: JavaScript - Level 4 Course is designed to introduce students with a working knowledge of Web Design to the fundamentals of JavaScript (an object-based, event-driven Web programming language), which tightly integrates with HTML.

Students will learn the fundamentals of JavaScript through a series of interesting assignments and as the course progresses, the student's skills are honed via the development of a number of dynamic, interactive games such as the Minefield and Connect 4 games. The final assignment consists of the development of a technically demanding ‘Owzat cricket game, where the extensive JavaScript and jQuery skills learned during the course, are brought together to create a stunning application, which you will be rightly proud of.

During the course, you will learn how to:

  • create powerful JavaScript functions and event handlers;
  • implement dynamic HTML5 API's such as drag and drop and geolocation;
  • work with jQuery to produce visually stunning effects and animations;
  • incorporate AJAX and JSON technology;
  • use the JavaScript Console, with debugging techniques and breakpoints; and
  • construct powerful interactive web-based applications.

On successful completion of the course, students will receive the Distance Learning Centre Webmaster - JavaScript Diploma with comprehensive feedback and analysis of your completed work, as well as the Open Awards Quality Endorsed Unit Course Certificate.

The lesson notes are delivered through slides giving you the required information to work through each lesson and there are student files you will download to work on so you are putting into practice what you are learning.
