What will I learn in this course?
The course begins with the foundations of the web: domains, browsers and servers, hosting, and more. HTML & CSS are learned in-depth, allowing you to code some types of websites or work alongside developers.
We’ll channel your design education towards the unique ways users interact online. UX/UI classes will teach you best practices for effective and compelling design, and how to research and make design decisions.
We’ll focus strongly on WordPress, the top website builder platform. You’ll learn to create beautiful, custom websites from start to finish using WordPress, as well as techniques and advice for taking your skills further and applying them to more complex scenarios.
The e-commerce segment gives you a thorough grounding in fundamentals including payment gateways, merchant accounts, SSL certificates, and PCI compliance, as well as practical methods for accepting payment online and creating online stores.
To make sure you can complete projects with confidence, we also have thorough classes on website hosting and security, the basics of SEO, social media marketing, email marketing, and Google Analytics.
Lastly, you’ll be prepared for entering the business world with classes on topics like structuring projects, proposals, working with clients, and more.

How long should I expect to be working on the course each week?
Between the lessons and homework assignments, expect to take on average 10 – 15 hours a week, plus more before project deadlines.
Is this course offered in self-paced format?
The web design course is only offered live, as it is a complex topic that needs a lot of personal support and time for Q&A that we can best support in a live format.
What will I walk away with?
Upon finishing the course, you will have built 3 websites — two class projects plus a live site for a real client. Your HTML/CSS and design education allow you to work in any web agency alongside developers. Your client site (built on WordPress) is the culmination of everything you’ve learned in design for web and coding, and is a great portfolio piece as well as valuable experience in working with a client.

“I loved my Design Alive experience. The classes were challenging, exciting and well-taught. The teachers were incredible- talented and knowledgeable- and were always available (even after I graduated the course!) to answer all of my questions.
I was really happy with the Design Alive web design course. The teacher was excellent, and taught everything very clearly. It was great to be able to learn from the convenience of my home. I am now a freelance web designer, and Zippy is always forwarding us jobs that she hears of. I would really recommend this course to anyone looking for a career in web design.
