HTML5: Content Authoring with New and Advanced Features
Web browsers, which display content coded in these languages, have evolved rapidly over the last few years. This course focuses on the new and advanced features of HTML5, covering how to create HTML5 and CSS3 markup that will work well on the widest possible variety of web browsers, mobile devices, and machine readers, such as search engine web crawlers. The course also demonstrates how to use advanced HTML5 multimedia features such as video, audio, and animation.
In this course, you will develop web content in HTML5 and CSS3 following principles of responsive web design.
- Optimize HTML content to take advantage of HTML5 and CSS3 features.
- Write advanced CSS3 selectors and media queries.
- Use advanced background and border options introduced in CSS3.
- Use advanced text formatting options introduced in CSS3.
- Use HTML5 graphics and multimedia elements, including transforms, animation, audio, and video.
- Follow best practices to enable HTML content to be successfully processed by many different web browsers and machine readers.
This course assumes that students are comfortable authoring web content in HTML and CSS, and are familiar with fundamental web server and content-delivery concepts, such as how content is posted on a web server and delivered to users through a browser. This course can serve as an upgrade path for developers who are experienced in older versions of HTML and CSS, or who have learned HTML content authoring fundamentals through the HTML5: Content Authoring Fundamentals course.
