Why is this course important for my design education?
HTML5 is the evolving future of web development and the APIs and technologies available are shaping how designers create visual, interactive solutions. In addition to exciting new functionality, such as Canvas, Offline Storage, and Geo-Location, HTML5 provides semantic elements and attributes which, together with CSS3 and media queries, allow for responsive web design and development.
What will I take away from this course?
Students will complete the course with hands-on experience working with HTML5 and CSS3 as well as the ability to design prototypes and build responsive web and mobile experiences.
Do you have a sample exercise/assignment?

In addition to weekly assignments and projects, students will design and build a portfolio-worthy final project.
HTML5 is currently being offered in the classroom (spring quarter 2012) and, in fall quarter, will be offered online. Don’t hesitate to call the office for more information 310.206.1422 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
