JRNL 180 Y: Coding for Communication Majors
MW 4:30-5:55 p.m. Fall 2015
For this introductory course, students will learn how to construct and publish web pages by learning how to write basic HTML and CSS code. Through the combination of resources provided by Code Academy and in-class instruction, students will work with a variety of elements (text, links, tables) and rich media such as video and audio files to create dynamic web pages.
No prerequisites are necessary; this is an introductory course. It differs from a computer science course in that it teaches construction with, not the architecture of, code.
