Description: The course provides a thorough introduction into the use of HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery to create Web sites that target the capabilities of modern browsers. HTML5 includes new structural and form elements, implementation of audio and video elements, and intrinsic APIs that offer features such as determining user location, Web storage, and dynamic creation of graphics using Canvas. CSS3 introduces new selectors and properties, creation of drop shadows, text shadows, rounded corners and gradient backgrounds without the use of an image editor, as well as simple animated effects without the use of JavaScript or Flash.

The course covers the jQuery library, DOM manipulation, Ajax requests, and an overview of the UI library. Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.

Prerequisites: Knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript equivalent to attending the Website Development with HTML5, CSS and Bootstrap and JavaScript Programming courses.
