Course Description

Internet browsing is rapidly shifting from desktop computers to smartphones and tablets. Mobile browsing contributed to over 50% of web traffic and surpassed desktop browsing for the first time in 2014. For web design, it means it has become extremely important to build websites optimized for mobiles, tablets and desktops alike.

The problem with many current sites is that the user experience in mobile browsers is terrible, and responsive design is meant to solve this problem. Responsive websites ‘respond’ to the size of screen size so you don’t have to create different sites for different devices. This course aims to teach responsive website design without writing code.
