You know you have a good Web design when three things happen: 1) users quickly find the information they came for; 2) they feel an invitation to explore more pages; and 3) they become return customers. You can achieve the above scenario by making the best decisions regarding graphics, placement of information, and organization of content, and the appropriate use of technology.
This one-day course will give you skills to keep your pages looking fresh, modern, and up-to-speed with the best of the Internet.
The morning session will deconstruct existing Web sites and then show you how you can achieve similar effects. You will also learn design fundamentals and color theory that you can use to guide your layout decisions so that the content is organized, attractive and above all, accessible.
In the afternoon session you will have the chance to apply the concepts and techniques from the morning session and bring your ideas to the web. You will learn to use FrontPage to bring your new content to the web in an exciting and attractive manner. Additionally, we will review technologies to get the most from your pages.
This workshop will be broadcast via videoconference at both sites. Brad Stephens will instruct from the NOLA location and Elaine Terman will instruct from the CAMLS electronic classroom.
