MDIA 4311 - Responsive Web Design

Media Communications Part-time Studies Course

School of Business

Course Details

In this course, learners examine the basics of Responsive Web Design. Students compare and contrast responsive design with other approaches to multi-platform and device design, and are introduced to testing tools (emulators/simulators) for various platforms that could be targeted and use these tools to validate their work. Learners also develop a wireframe for a responsive website and create a simple responsive website based on a site they previously designed using flexible grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries. Students will then adapt this site so that it functions well on desktop, mobile, and tablets thus creating a fully responsive Web design conversion.
