to top of page Website design and layout (Intermediate)
As users become more sophisticated, their expectations of your Website are increasing, so there is a need to ensure that your presence stands out from the herd.

One way to do this is to make sure that the site is well designed - aesthetically pleasing as well as practical and functional. We all know that good design is important, and helps to capture attention and create interest.

We offer this training to those who have mastered the basic writing of HTML code to generate web pages, but are ready to progress to more sophisticated layouts, using tables, shims and text as graphics. The training synopsis is:

  • Overall site design
  • Planning for expansion
  • Who is your customer?
  • Image and aura

  • Relative and absolute URLs
  • Style guidelines
  • Collapsible multibrowser pages
  • Layout with tables and shims
  • Using text as graphics
  • Creating simple original graphics
to top of page Creating graphics for your Website (Basic)
Original graphics give the ability to maintain continuity and help to attract attention to what you want to say. This training will begin with using and adapting existing public domain graphics, and lead through manipulation to original creation.

Whilst the processes can be shown, individuals with creative skills will be at a great advantage, so this training is most suitable for those who have an interest in, or some ability with the creative arts such as craft, photography, art, illustration and so on. The training synopsis is:

  • Why the web is different from other media
  • Graphic formats (gif, jpg, bmp, tiff, psd, wmf, and others)
  • Colour compatibility
  • Standard sizes, for icons, banners, and pages
  • An overview of image manipulation programmes
  • Using ready made graphics
  • Using photographs
  • Sizing, cropping and colouring
  • Modifying and editing
  • Backgrounds and watermarks
  • Making your own images.
to top of page Animated graphics for your Website (Basic)
It is easier than you might think to produce simple animations that really grab attention. The key thing to remember is that less is often more. Filling a page with moving images might suit a hyperactive nine year old, but will alienate the greater proportion of your viewers. Once you have the ability to modify and make simple graphics, you can progress to assembling slightly different variations of the image to give the impression of movement or change. This training is intended as a follow on to those who are competent at basic image manipulation, and will use gif files as the basis of the animation

to top of page Uploading and Maintaining your Website on the Internet (Intermediate)
Making the pages and using them on your own computer is one thing, but to share them with the rest of the world you need to upload them onto your webserver. To do this you need to have a directory structure in place that is compatible with the files on your hard disc.

You can (and probably will) spend ages changing incompatible filenames to make it work unless you get it right from the start. This training will help to avoid time wasted through poor design, and is suitable for those who will be responsible for administering and maintaining a Website. The training synopsis is:

  • Directory structure
  • Relative and absolute filenames
  • Site structure conventions
  • Uploading ASCII files
  • Uploading binary files
  • Troubleshooting
  • Access logs
