HTML Level 1 for Computing Science teachers

Creating web pages and web sites can feature at all levels of the curriculum and are a fun and engaging way of bringing together many topics - graphics, image processing, navigation design, multimedia etc.

When it comes to National 4, National 5 and the new Higher Computing science courses there is a greater emphasis and some requirement for pupils to produce and edit simple html code.

This one day introductory course is for those with no prior knowledge of HTML or those who feel they need a refresher and up-date

The emphasis of this course is to develop real competence in hand-coding, reading and editing HTML code. It is important to undertand and use contemporary, up-to-date, standards-based and valid HTML coding as a foundation for all other web development tasks. This course will introduce you to HTML5 and how to create well-formed, valid pages and sites to meet the requirements of National 5 Computing Science and beyond.

HTML Level 2 for Computing Science teachers

Creating well-structured, modern web pages using contemporary best practices requires you to have a detailed understanding of HTML.

To effectively teach web design and HTML coding at National 4, National 5, Higher and in the new Advanced Higher Computing courses teachers will need a detailed, thorough, knowledge and understanding of modern HTML along with practical coding skills to create and modify it.

This one day course follows on from the Yuleblinker HTML Level 1 course and is aimed at those who have attended the Level 1 course or who are confident and competent in coding basic HTML.

Just like the HTML Level 1 course the emphasis of this course is to develop real competence in hand-coding, reading and editing HTML code. It is important to understand and use contemporary, up-to-date, standards-based and valid HTML coding as a foundation for all other web development tasks.

This course will develop and reinforce your HTML 5 skills in creating more complex web pages and will especially focus on creating suitably structured HTML pages to use with Javascript and CSS techniques required for Higher and Advanced Higher Computing Science.
