Course Details

This course is the culmination of the Certificate in Web Technologies. You will draw together all of the knowledge and skills that you have acquired in the Certificate program and present them in terms of a personal online portfolio. There will be ten assignments (portfolio web pages) and each assignment focusses on a specific skill or technique, although other design elements to create a well-balanced web page should be included. You should approach this course with the idea that you will create a marketing tool that can be used to demonstrate your design background and skillset to prospective clients.
