Web Programming Courses

"Web Programming is a challenging and rewarding career!  Front-end skills, such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are being used in all industries now, and many companies expect their employees to have some knowledge of this technology. This will only increase exponentially going forward."

30+ Computer Science and programming courses covering all of the latest technologies, like Javascript, PHP/MySQL, E-Commerce, Software Engineering principles, Software Version Control and more...

Welcome to the Web Technology Institute. You'll find programs and individual courses here that will take you from complete novice to Web Developer in no time. I start my students with an Introduction to Programming course that gives you the fundamentals of programming, to get you started on your journey. From there you'll delve into mark-up languages, like HTML5 and CSS3 before continuing on to more complex programming languages.

This is a bundle of courses that takes you from beginning Javascript programming to advanced topics needed to pass the exam. Not appropriate for students who do not have a solid foundation in beginning programming. Beginners should complete the Front End Web Developer Program before starting this program.

How does the program work, and what is included?

Courses are run on the Moodle Learning Management system. Moodle provides a comprehensive learning environment that includes features such as student chat rooms, progress tracking, student question and answer forums and much more.

Each course has a dedicated instructor who monitors the class, grades assignments, views website development, performs code reviews, and answers questions via the class forum. Although the classes are self-paced, and students can work at their own pace, they still have a dedicated instructor standing by to offer assistance. And when students get stuck, and the issue cannot be resolved through the course forum, they can request a video chat with the instructor.

Each course has several graded assignments, as well as a final project, which lets students put what they have learned to use. Students build websites and applications of increasing complexity throughout the program.

We don't overwhelm our students - each course is available as the student passes the prerequisite, so they can concentrate on one course at a time. We generally expect students to be able to complete each course in 4 weeks, but students are free to stay with a course as long as needed. At the end of the program a student can receive an extension to the 6 month time frame if needed. We stay flexible to work with different learning styles and lack of prior experience.

Our Program is Unique

Unlike other programs, this is not a BOOTCAMP, where we rush through all the content regardless of the students prior computer experience, and then blame the student if he or she cannot keep up! We understand that learning to code is not an easy process for most people, and our program is not geared for students who already have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science.

Our program is also not completely video based, like courses you would see on other online education platforms. Why? Because most video based courses have students sit back and watch someone else write code, which is NOT the same as diving in and writing your own code. It is way too easy for students to just watch the videos without really learning how to solve problems on their own. We use videos where needed, to complement the content.

We encourage independent research

The truth about programming is very different from how the field is presented to beginners. It is an ongoing learning process that begins with your first programming class and continues throughout your career. Please understand this before taking on this challenge. For example, I learned how to code small programs in one programming language (C Language) while working toward my B.S. in Computer Science. Since that time I have taught myself over 10 other programming languages, and have spent most of my career researching the latest upcoming technology to add to my skills. This field requires people who enjoy learning new things constantly. We go out of our way to encourage using the Internet as a learning tool, so students can keep learning far into the future.

Available courses

Introduction to WWW Authoring, HTML and CSS is a foundation class that teaches the basics of Hypertext Markup Language coding and Cascading Style Sheets. The class begins with the history of the Web and a look at how it operates, then goes on to a more technical look at HTML and CSS.

Intermediate Web Authoring, HTML and CSS is the second part of a three part series of classes on the fundamentals of Website Design and HTML coding.

The course introduces the student to HTML table creation. Table attributes are covered, and the students learn how to construct basic HTML tables. The course goes on to more advanced table design and teaches the student how to create basic charts and graphs. Then advanced graphing is covered, exploring the use of 1 pixel images and graphics in table design. HTML forms are then covered, including the FORM tag and its attributes, and various types of form elements that can be used. The form ACTION command is covered, as well as its relation to Web programming concepts. Students learn how to create forms that use text boxes, text areas, radio buttons, check boxes, password fields and select menus. Students learn how to manipulate the style of their tables and forms using Cascading Style Sheets.
Advanced WWW Authoring and XHTML is the third in the WWW Authoring series...
Development of basic knowledge of programming concepts and techniques. Topics include familiarization with and utilization of computer systems; developing logic; preparing top-down design of problems; and creating programs. This class is for those who have few or no skills in programming. Emphasis will be placed on problem definition, program solution, and how to enter, manipulate, and display data. Using C-Language as a teaching vehicle, this course will expose students to the basic programming concepts they need for further work with programming languages. Prerequisites: End-user familiarity with computers, the Internet.

Students,

Welcome! My September classes run from 9/2/2014 to 9/23/2014. My classes are self-paced, and you can hand in assignments as you work on them. All assignments are due by 6pm on the last day of class.

Please ask all questions in the class forum, and try to help other students out as much as possible. Your grade is based on points received from graded assignments and/or exams.

I answer forum questions during my office hours, Monday to Friday from 8am to 1pm.

Enjoy your class!

Judy
