Introduction to CSS and Dreamweaver, Thursday 15th March 5.30pm, Computer Centre

This week's class builds on last week’s introduction to HTML and Dreamweaver. We will look at the basic relationship between HTML code and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and discuss why you should use CSS when building a website.
We only have an hour so you won’t get a chance to build a site at the workshop, but this should give you some good pointers to get you started. All the information will be posted on the VLE under “Learning Resources IT Twilight Classes”, in the materials section under Dreamweaver.

So come along, no computer is necessary, just turn up for this informal workshop about setting up a website. See you in the big training room (the big room with all the iMacs in it) on Thursday at 5.30pm.
