This is an exciting time to be in the field of web development! My book, Basics of Web Design: HTML5 & CSS3, help students develop a well-rounded skillset so they can design HTML5 web pages that work today in addition to being ready to apply of new CSS3 coding techniques.
Building on the textbook's successful first edition we kept what you like -- topics introduced in two pages, color illustrations and screen captures, lots of hands-on practice exercises, and a case study website that students build as they work through the book. The new second edition minimizes coverage of XHTML and focuses on HTML5 and CSS. There are now two case study websites for students to practice with. There is also expanded coverage of responsive web design techniques including media queries with hands-on practice exercises. exercises. Today's learners are busy multitaskers. The book is organized in two-page sections that quickly introduce the reader to new topics, provide examples, and offer hands-on exercises. This approach will get your students up-and-running quickly.
The textbook companion website at webdevbasics.net has a page for each chapter with hyperlinks for websites listed in the book, information on emerging trends, additional examples, corrections, and review games. Instructor materials are available from the publisher's website.
