Where to go to learn web design for free with unique content? Aha, do not delay, stumble across it today (did rymthing ever help get a point across?) - w3university.co.uk releases unique content worthy of more than just a following from the newbie web designer.
With complete reference material for HTML and CSS, including hand written courses on the said subjects, w3university.co.uk launches onto the scene offering colorful, relevant and precise information. Study material worthy of hanging up on a wall in a glass frame (if you like purple). Particularly, the "Style with CSS" course presents a different inner layout on almost
every single page of the later course topics, which demonstrates CSS's capabilities. Not to mention, the in-depth course content, which covers 15 topics within the CSS standard.
Those wanting to discover how to use CSS to design webpages can work their way through the course, from an introduction to the CSS language, through to
rule writing, targetting, floating elements, image handling and more. Advanced topics include layered positioning, transitions and keyframed animations.
All the information is provided freely by the writer and even comes completely 'ad free', which is certainly a rare find. "We tried to present the information in an enjoyable way, that keeps the readers interested" mentioned the course writer, while in a discussion referring to studying online.
With more material being developed for jQuery and future excellence series courses for CSS, it looks like w3university.co.uk is keen to provide real world skills to all those who design and develop websites. Not just for the
beginner either, advanced topics have proved useful for even experienced designers with years under their belt.
Not to be forgotten, the reference area is available to find out how each command in the associated language is used and what that command achieves. As if this wasn't enough, the Dynamic HTML Element Wall tells you, in about a half-second which html elements belong to a chosen "Content Model". Those learning html will know this is handy, especially when they can also find out the new html5 elements by simply hovering their mouse over the choice trigger.
To prove how powerful CSS is, all the effects seen on the site are done in CSS, referring to the animations, transitions and dynamic sub-selections. Web designers have a new tool in their arsenal - http://w3university.co.uk.
