Web Design Course
If you would like to design your own website and avoid the cost of hiring a professional web designer, you have a few different options. In this section, we will focus on taking a web design course.
A website design course will assist you in learning how to write your own HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) code, which is the language used to create a web page. And, although the code may be a bit intimidating when you first look at it, once you understand how it functions, it is actually a very simple language to understand and write.
There are several different ways in which you can take a web design course:
- Pick up a website design book at your local bookstore
- Take a website design class at your local college
- Take an online course
- Purchase a web design course online that you can download and/or view online.
No matter what web page design option you select, it is still VERY important that you take some sort of web design course and learn at least the basics of writing HTML code. Learning how to create and edit your own web pages will not only save you a great deal of time and money, but it will also provide you with independence.
Consider this, if you were to hire a web designer, would you be able to make changes to your web page and get your updated page online? Of course not. You will have to contact your web designer, wait for them to get back with you, wait for them to make the changes, and then pay them each time you need any changes.
You will be MUCH better off to just take a little time to educate yourself. HTML is actually a very simple language to learn and will provide you with the ability to create and edit your own web pages.
