Webmaster Seminar

Our webmaster seminar is 16 hours of instruction ( four sessions )
aimed at individuals who are familiar with the use of a computer,
and who wish to learn how to create and manage a simple web site.
Each participant will be expected to create a functioning web site
during the course of the seminar.

We begin with an explanation of the web site design process,
and walk the participant through the design of a site.
We cover the features which must be present for the site to be successful,
and include site maintenance in the design process.

The participants then learn how to structure the site content,
and how to encode the site, using a text editor.
The requirements of XHTML 1.0 are covered, and the participants are
shown how to wrap a standard page around their content and to
maintain a consistent look and feel throughout the site.

The layout and presentation of the site is covered with an
introduction to style sheets and the participants will learn how
to effect overall changes in the appearance of the site without
recoding individual pages.

Finally, site expansion and maintenance are covered, as well
as several specialized topics to let the participants know the
range of things they are able to accomplish with their site.
