Diploma in Web Design Course Overview

Web Design Course Website Designer Course

Learning to design a website requires mastering many different skills from organizing the structure of the website, making sure it is easy to use and navigate, to designing the graphics and layout of the information. This part-time web design course concentrates on the fundamentals of building a website. It starts with the basics, using HTML code to build a basic site, giving the learner a solid foundation in how a website is designed. It then moves on to using a html editor - Adobe Dreamweaver - to design a website in a more user friendly environment.

Adobe Dreamweaver is the leading industry software in web designing and is used by the majority of major companies and organisations. It allows the user to design web page templates and style sheets which significantly reduces the time the web designer needs to spend on website design and maintenance. The final section of the web design course introduces the learner to Adobe Fireworks. Adobe Fireworks can be used to manipulate images, design rollover buttons and create a webpage layout which can be brought into Dreamweaver and used as a template for a website.

  • IBAT Student - Jack Quinn- Digital Marketing, Dublin School of English

    I feel I have gained a useful, applicable skill even with this introductory course. I now apply these skills to my job as a Digital Marketer and Social Media Manager; I take with me a deeper understanding of SEO, website design and functionality. Even if becoming a web designer isn't your endgame, seeing The Internet from the inside out gives you a unique perspective and an edge over the competition.
