***Lite Edition***

Hello and welcome to this short course on HTML, which is the language of the World Wide Web!

Why Learn HTML?

HTML is the language of the Web. In other words, HTML is the computer language on which the web (Internet) is built. Yet, it is simple and easy to learn and its basic rules are easy to pick up and put to use. HTML is a tool, an investment for life, and once you know how to use it, you are limited only by your imagination.

Course Mission:

The mission of this short course is to provide a quick and accessible way for you to learn HTML from ground up and also use it as a quick basic reference guide wherever and whenever you want. I hope that this course fills in multiple roles as both a learning tool and a basic reference once you expand your skills.

Course Rundown (What makes this course different?):

Each lecture in this course is independent of the other lectures in the course. That is you do not need to follow a linear learning path, which is to start at the very first lecture and end at the last. Just think of this course as a multipurpose tool – perhaps the Swiss Army Knife of HTML language. That is because, not only can you employ this course to learn HTML from scratch but you can also use it as a basic reference whenever you want to review a certain basic topic in the HTML language. It starts with the basics of HTML and builds up to give you a solid background on the basics of HTML.
