MDIA 3211 - Bootstrap for Mobile Design

Media Communications Part-time Studies Course

School of Business

Course Details

This course uses Bootstrap as a powerful responsive framework to manually code dynamic mobile websites. Students will combine Bootstrap's mobile assets with HTML and CSS to develop custom mobile websites with content that resizes, repositions, collapses, and hides for optimal delivery on any device. Students will implement Bootstrap's responsive plugins, including Carousel Galleries, Accordions, Modals, and Popovers to increase site usability and interactivity, and create dynamic animated elements with Bootstrap's integrated CSS animations. To ensure optimized web delivery, this course explores custom Bootstrap exports, which minimize Bootstrap's file size and increase site performance. The course will be delivered through a series of video notes.
