Interested in building your own website? Come to our series of 5 classes to learn the basics of website development using Moonfruit.com.
Classes run from 5:30 - 7:30 pm on Level 4 in the Large Classroom at the Central Library on the following days:
Monday, February 7; Tuesday, February 8; Monday, February 14; Tuesday February 15; Tuesday, February 22.
Each class in this series will build on the skills covered in the previous classes so attendance at all five is strongly recommended. Class 5 will be an open lab to come in and work on the website you have developed and get additional assistance for any areas you found tricky during the class. Participants must have an email address and at least intermediate level typing and mouse skills. Over the course of all 5 classes, you will cover:
- Understanding the editing environment: page and Master (CSS) views
- Editing your Webpage and its objects
- Adding text
- Adding a file structure
- Inserting images
- Creating links and navigation bars
- Adding and organizing Webpages
- Image tools and how to use them
- Creating a feedback form
- Interacting with your visitors
- Global design settings
- Page Master site settings
- Finding your site on the internet
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Does this require signup or do I just show up?
Great question, Nate!
None of the classes require registration. We only have 20 seats available and the class is first come, first served, so get there a little early to ensure your spot.
Is the class free? Also, where is it located? I don't think these questions were answered in the blog entry, unless I just missed it.
Sorry about that! These classes are free and will be held in the Level 4 Large Classroom at the Central Library.
Do I need to bring my laptop?
Thanks for asking Mary!
You do not need to bring your laptop, but I would recommend it. We have 12 computers available for people to work on in our classroom. If you bring a laptop, that will open up an additional spot for someone else, as well as have you working on a machine that you are comfortable with.
That said, please make sure any laptop you bring has Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 on it.
Will you be offering this series again? I've missed the first couple, which I'm sure the later classes build on...
Thanks so much for your interest Yvette! We are definitly hoping to be able to offer this series again in the future. Please do continue to check our online calendar for updates on when we will offer classes.
If you have some specific questions about web development, please feel free to call 720-865-1706 to schedule an appointment for one-on-one instruction. One-on-one instruction is a one hour session where you have the opportunity to meet with someone to learn about a specific topic.
I would love to see this series come back!!!
