This course introduces students to the underpinning services required to host, manage and access a secure website. Students will then be introduced to and explore the methods used by designers and developers to blend back-end technologies (server-side) with front-end technologies (client-side). To help ensure that new designers are able to design and deliver a site that offers an outstanding User Experience (UX) supported by an innovative User Interface (UI). Students will discuss the reasons, requirements, relationships, capabilities and features of the systems they will be using. This gives them an opportunity to explore various tools, techniques and technologies with ‘good design’ principles in order to plan, design and review a multipage website.

On successful completion of the course, students will be able to explain the server technologies and management services associated with the hosting and management of secure websites, categorise website technologies, tools and software used to develop websites, utilise website technologies, tools and techniques with good design principles to create a multipage website and create and use a Test Plan to review the performance and design of a multipage website.

By the end of this course a student will be able to:

  1. Explain server technologies and management services associated with hosting and managing websites.
  2. Categorise website technologies, tools and software used to develop websites.
  3. Utilise website technologies, tools and techniques with good design principles to create a multipage website.
  4. Create and use a Test Plan to review the performance and design of a multipage website.

There are no formal prerequisites or qualifications required to enroll. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • As the course is conducted entirely in English, we recommend that learners have a good grasp of the English language, both written and spoken, to gain maximum benefit.
  • Since this is an online course, you’ll need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access. Familiarity with basic computer skills would be advantageous.
  • While you can learn at your own pace, dedicating consistent time to the course will help you understand and retain the material better.
