About This Course

Published 7/2015 English

Course Description

This course is for beginning web design students and is ideal for students who wish to learn on their own or who are working in a classroom setting.

No experience with HTML or CSS is required, but you should be familiar with the concepts of files and folders on your computer.

Materials include the videos for each unit, starting with a concept video and then showing specific steps to take within the program. You are also provided with a copy of the site for each section along with a PDF file with a summary of the material, activities recommended to complete, and questions to challenge yourself.

The course is designed to take about 13 weeks to complete, though some people complete it in less than half that time. The more motivated you are to learn the more you will get from the course.

What are the requirements?

  • You should have Dreamweaver CC. The course uses the 2014 version but any CC version will do. The older CS versions will not.
  • You should know how to save and find files on your computer. If you can create a folder on your desktop, add some folders inside of that, and then save and find files in those folders then you have all the skills you need!

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Build and publish a website using Dreamweaver CC2014
  • Use online resources to make sites work even better
  • Understand not just the HOW but the WHY of using the tools in Dreamweaver

What is the target audience?

  • This Dreamweaver class is meant for people new to web development who know little if anything about HTML, CSS, programming, or other similar technologies. If you can save and find files on your computer you are ready to take this course.
  • This class is not meant for experienced web developers. While you might pick up tips and tricks you did not know, much of the time is spent on skills for beginners.

Instructor Biography

Michael Glasser, Online Instructor

In 1987 I started working toward my psychology degree in Las Vegas (UNLV). While doing so, I wanted a job which would pay well, be flexible around my college classes, and not require me to travel far from school. The college computer labs were looking for people who could help other students. I applied and, somehow, got the job. The lab had about 50 PCs, 50 Macs, and 20 machines that were neither - something called "UNIX". I was told it was my job to answer questions when people asked them - great, I had only one question: where was the "on" button? I had never used any of those computers before!

I know what it is like to struggle to learn a computer system.

Within two years I was teaching classes to high school students on weekends (through Upward Bound, a program for at-risk high school students) where I continued to teach for the next six years.

I also ran the three education labs at UNLV where I managed all of the hardware, software, and training needs.

After college I worked for a small non-profit organization as a system administrator; we developed a communication and information sharing system for over 200 schools and 100 United Way agencies. I did that for a few years until I moved to Tucson where I worked for Intuit (the folks who make Quicken and TurboTax). I started as a support representative and then became a trainer for the support folks and designed and maintained the internal training website.

Now in Prescott for several years, I have been working at an online college and other online universities teaching computer classes: everything from introductory classes, image editing software, web surfing, and web design. I have also managed the technology and taught at K-12 schools, both public and private, small businesses, and I work with many individuals where I help them to make the best of their computers and other technology.

I have a passion for teaching and thoroughly enjoy watching folks learn. When I teach, no matter the age of the student, I have never forgotten how overwhelming and frustrating it can be to learn how to use computers or learn a new program. It truly is like learning a new language and I try to teach with that in mind, using words and terminology that my students can understand and with examples that my students can relate.
