Middle School Web Design Course that Teaches Actual Code

August 4, 2017

A teacher called yesterday, looking for a web design course that teaches actual code. Like other teachers I’ve spoken to, she understood that dragging around blocks on screen, where the app writes the code for the student, is not the same as the student actually writing the code themselves! The fallacy of many code courses […]

July 26, 2017

  Let’s start with the main elements of an effective web design course: Lessons plans should be open ended, to allow for students of different abilities. Courses should be self-paced.

Make YouTube and Vimeo Videos Responsive with CSS

May 30, 2017

Hi, I recently made some videos on StudioWeb.com’s home page responsive with some simple CSS code. Here is the code that should be written in between your CSS style block: .responsive-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; padding-top: 30px; height: 0; overflow: hidden; margin-bottom: 50px; } .responsive-container iframe { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: […]

Web Design Curriculum for 2017-2018

May 19, 2017

I started building websites in 1994 and started teaching web design in 2000. Since even the early 2000’s (I won’t even talk about the 1990’s!) much has changed when it comes to building web sites! … If you are teaching your students ‘old-school’ methods from that era (ex: XHTML, Dreamweaver, Photoshop) that is akin to […]

Learning CSS3 in 2016

August 23, 2016

CSS3 Course in 2016

CSS3 is the latest version of CSS and though powerful, it can be hard to learn. This is especially true when you get into advanced CSS3 layouts, and mobile design!

Making CSS3 easy to learn

After years of writing articles, building CSS courses, and even writing book, I’ve refined my teaching techniques so that students totally new to CSS can learn easily.

The key is what teachers call the ‘spiral’ teaching method. This combined with an interactive Q&A like experience, makes seemingly complex and powerful CSS techniques, pretty easy to learn.

Video based CSS training

Reading is cool, but watching a CSS expert demonstrate the key techniques and principles can’t be beat. Combine this will a Q&A session with your teacher, and you will have an amazing time learning even the most advanced CSS.

Yes, this was my shameless self promotion, but after having taught coding since 2003, I am very confident that you will find my courses a powerful tool in your journey to learn to code CSS.

It’s really hard to teach web design if you don’t know how to code … until now!
