Web Design - Content Development

We have some skills and knowledge. We understand the structure of a webpage and how to use tags.

We can style our tags using CSS.

Javascript can help us to make our pages interactive.

We need to take some time to develop content for our webpages. Content could be:

  1. images - .jpg .png .svg .bmp etc
  2. videos - .avi .mp4 etc
  3. audio - .mp3 .wav
  4. animations - .svg .fla

This page introduces short courses to kick start your content development adventure.

The reason for choosing these applications is that many employers use them - so you will have an advantage if you already know how to use them!
