The Webmaster - Responsive Web Design Course is for students with a pre-existing knowledge of HTML and CSS, and is an ideal follow-on programme for those completing the Webmaster HTML & CSS module for beginners, this course teaches you all you need to know about responsive web design (RWD), and provides you with the know-how to build stunning, responsive websites using the very latest HTML5 and CSS3 technology. The burgeoning number of users who access the Internet via smartphones and tablet computers means that modern web designers must build pages that are responsive to the screen size, automatically adjusting the content to suit the user's device. Responsive web design is a methodology which aims at providing an optimal viewing experience – easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling – across a wide range of devices, from computer monitors, through laptops and tablets, to smartphones. A responsive website automatically adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries. During the course, as well as learning the important responsive web design techniques, you will be introduced to all of the important new HTML5 elements and, via the magic of CSS3, you will apply a range of special effects, including transitions, transformations, and animations. You will marvel at the new HTML5 API's which allow you, for example, to incorporate brilliant drag & drop and geo-location map facilities into your website, as well as the versatile canvas API which allows you to create two and three-dimensional graphics on the fly, right there on your web pages. The course consists of the following lessons:
- Lesson 1 – Introduction
