The online media series

Two courses, one goal — to build better websites.

The online media presents exciting opportunities for the efficient and effective delivery of information. Websites, online help systems, intranets, and e-mail are firmly rooted in most of our business and technical world. But the online media extends beyond these to include blogs, chat rooms, online communities, wikis, and more.

The online media differs in many ways from conventional paper based media and requires a special set of skills to use effectively. Two courses are offered to help you master authoring in the online media: Site Architecture for the Online Media, and Design and Authoring for the Online Media.

Site Architecture for the Online Media

In this course we examine and practise the skills necessary to design sites that are well organized and easy to navigate. We apply these skills while developing the framework of an information site using a combination of HTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and a Content Management System.

Design and Authoring for the Online Media

In this course we discover how to design and author pages that are organized, readable, easily understood and credible. We apply these skills while customizing page themes using a combination of HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and authoring pages within a managed environment.
