О курсе

Thanks to a growing number of software programs, it seems as if anyone can make a webpage. But what if you actually want to understand how the page was created? There are great textbooks and online resources for learning web design, but most of those resources require some background knowledge. This course is designed to help the novice who wants to gain confidence and knowledge. We will explore the theory (what actually happens when you click on a link on a webpage?), the practical (what do I need to know to make my own page?), and the overlooked (I have a page, what do I do now?). Throughout the course there will be a strong emphasis on adhering to syntactic standards for validation and semantic standards to promote wide accessibility for users with disabilities. The textbook we use is available online, “The Missing Link: An Introduction to Web Development and Programming” by Michael Mendez from This course will appeal to a wide variety of people, but specifically those who would like a step-by-step description of the basics. There are no prerequisites for this course and it is assumed that students have no prior programming skills or IT experience. The course will culminate in a small final project that will require the completion of a very simple page with links and images. The focus of this course is on the basics, not appearance. You can see a sample final page at This is the first course in the Web Design For Everybody specialization. Subsequent courses focus on the marketable skills of styling the page with CSS3, adding interactivity with JavaScript and enhancing the styling with responsive design. You can see a sample site for the capstone course at

I really enjoyed everything about this course. I thought the exercises/quizzes were fair and the instructor showed me many things that will serve me well going forward. Great course, great instructor!

Good introduction to web development. The teacher (Colleen van Lent) has great attitude and seems interested in getting students themselves interested... she explained the intro topics very clearly.

Two instances of typos (advised multiple times in comments by different users over many months) but not fixed.

<ul> / <ol> mixed up

<nav> / <nag> mixed

Causes confusion on final project

Content otherwise great

Autograder on final project is very frustrating - no feedback on the code to know what it didn't like. Other than that, everything else was very helpful and straightforward for this novice. Thank you!

Very informative course. Although I feel this was just a small step into html, I believe now that I'm capable of diving as much deeper as I can into this subject by using the basis that I learned here.

teacher is good,but i hope you can describe the tags by code,that can make us profound influence.

and we can understand directly.

more examples are better than introduce.thanks a lot for your curriculum

Great course for an overview of what HTML5 is like! I would have preferred it, however, if there still was a kind of instant autograder, like a parser or something. The lecturer is quite good as well!

This was at a self learning pace that allowed me to succeed. Colleen van Lent does a great job in the videos where they are short enough to not lose interest, yet enough information to easily learn.

The course is a good starter, but it could do with more material allowing you to practice the skills presented each week rather than the self-driven approach, which could be done without the class.

She was an exceptional teacher throughout but I believe that some tags weren't explained thoroughly like the navigation tag she just told us about it and so I had to search around on how to use it.

Great course! Wonderful teaching by Colleen! However, there is not so much practice within this course, that I expected. Thanks a lot to Colleen for creating this specialization! It's amazing!

I like the course it was very simple and easy to follow. I only thing I didn't like was the final. When your code was wrong it could at least give you a hint about what needs to be addressed

It's a good course for beginner! A lot of knowledges about hosting, domains etc. But not so much about directly HTML5. I would be better to extend this course for 4 weeks!

Thank you, Colleen!

This course is perfect for learning the very basics of html. The instructor also explains basic concepts beyond the code itself, including how to use editors, validators, and hosting sites.

The instructor is very good. The course could use a litle more practical assignments, but the concepts explained are still very good and useful, even if the course is mostly theoretical.

The course was really good , however I was expecting more final projects for practice. Also, for practice, there should have been some links where we can find sample pages to create.

Good course. Covers a lot of ground. Only recommendation, is to slow down a little bit in the middle to explain concepts more and let user get more practice. Otherwise very thorough!

I wanted to get an understanding of the fundamentals of html and this was a great course. It doesn't babysit you so you have to get interactive with the coding to actually learn it.

It is kind of confusing but not bad! I am more confused on how this works like it says enroll on the separate courses? I really hope I don't have to pay for each of those seprately

Fantastic course. only gave it 4 stars because I feel like some things (especially the last part) could have been elaborated a bit more. but otherwise, wonderful course, thank you.

Little confusing at times, and the last test/ project was jacked up. Turning in the project did not help and the test was definitely created to confuse. But i guess it was needed

I was expecting more coding exercises and the major task was only the demo page which I completed and validated, but somehow I always failed that answer wrong in the final quiz

Muy muy básico pero hay cosas que no sabía y que han sido interesantes. Me ha gustado el enfoque que le da todo el rato a que sea accesible para todo el mundo. Muy interesante.

It gives the basic of the basic of HTML5. I would recommend to either merge this course with other courses that have more about web stuff or to add some JS stuff to the course

It was good, but it was too short in my opinion. I think there should be more practical examples of how to use HTML5 - more assignments and exercises (probably optional).
