Posted April 27, 2009

CODY, Wyo. - Thanks to a scheduling change, there's still time to enroll in a beginning Web design class offered from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, May 9, at the Northwest College Cody Center for Training and Development.

Originally scheduled April 25, the class now carries a registration deadline of Wednesday, May 6.

Instructor Bill Boudreaux plans to help students develop the basic skills needed to design Web pages and be their own webmaster. He'll introduce Internet terminology and concepts in addition to leading students through an open source (free) software program to design Web pages and manipulate images.

Starting with the basics of understanding the Internet and how it works, Boudreaux will cover e-mail, browsers, search engines, domain names and servers, IP addressing, Google's algorithms, social media and user-generated content. Students will learn about popular coding languages and complete their own HTML (HyperText Markup Language) project. They'll learn about Web page design in office applications and explore techniques for exporting Web documents from other applications. Image file types, resizing and optimization are also covered.

Cost is $50.
