Time to Learn Some HTML

Posted in General IT Training on October 3, 2011 by

HTML, Hyper Text Markup Language, is a simple computer mark-up language that powers many of the pages on the internet. If you are building pages for the web with templates, blogs, BlackBoard Learn, Dreamweaver or any other web application software, find out what goes on behind the scenes. Training Services has a 3 hour workshop designed to provide you with some basic familiarity with the HTML language and to dispel the apprehensiveness people have when approaching “raw” HTML code. It will provide you with some troubleshooting skills and tools you can use when tackling problems in web pages generated with commercial HTML editors.
See our website offering for more information. Best of all, it is FREE for U of S faculty, staff and students!
