1. WELCOME TO THE WORLD WIDE WEB
The internet has connected the world on a whole new level of information sharing. The web industry is full of unusual terminology from the definitions of technology, to common design methodologies, to the difference between websites and web applications. On lesson 1, we discuss these and also the benefits, purpose, and value of building your own, whether as a working professional or for yourself.
2. HOW DO WEBSITES WORK?
The world of web 2.0 has seen the decline of the original static informational websites, and the advent of the new, dynamic, and interactive web application. In this lesson, you will learn the structure and components of both websites and web applications.
3. WHAT IS THE FRONT-END?
Websites and web applications are often separated into two main components: The front-end, and the back-end. The focus of this lesson is the purpose and function of the front-end and the technologies used to generate a visually appealing and responsive website.
4. WHAT IS THE BACK-END?
Web applications cannot exist without a back-end. The ability of a web application to recognize, remember, and recall information about a user, and to provide personalized, dynamic content is what sets them apart from a standard website. This class will investigate the two main technologies used to provide this dynamic functionality, namely the back-end code, and databases.
5. GOING LIVE
The defining feature of a website is its accessibility through the World Wide Web. Here we will discuss how you can bring your production website or web application from staging through to a live server, accessible to the entire internet via your domain name.
6. THE FULL STACK – CHOOSE YOUR PATH
What roles exist in the web development? The industry includes many disciplines and opportunities from a broad range of ability, from both technical and design backgrounds. Professions themselves have many overlapping skillsets, so you are free to specialize in the area of your choice. Alternatively, freelancers and full-stack developers require a broader range of skillsets to handle anything that comes their way.
7. GENERATING REVENUE
Some websites and web applications serve products, ideas, or information – whatever the value of the site, it is possible to generate an income from users of your site. The revenue stream options are discussed in this lesson depending upon the kind of website that is built.
8. INBOUND MARKETING & SEO
With everything else in place, the final step is to ensure that users know about your website. Search Engine Optimization is a hugely important tool to direct appropriate users to your website when you hold the solution to their problem. As web developers, it is very important that we understand the impact of our website design and build to this end.
SUCCESS STORIES (17,071)
The flexibility to accommodate and work around these challenges has been brilliant. The quality of the presentations and videos has been excellent and yourself and Adrian are first class Tutors. Your enthusiasm and passion for the subject is infectious and you have a real skill for making particular topics accessible and understandable. Areas previously shrouded in mystery to me now make sense! All round great service and quality of support and teaching and materials. I have to confess I wasn't sure what to expect from the course or the Academy and have been very impressed. I've done Open University courses before and have a degree from them but this has been my only experience of distance learning. I would recommend you guys no hesitation.
Since taking the course and talking about it on my CV, I have actually now been offered a job as an Online Affiliate graphic-design Executive – my first graphic-design job since I left university! (I have been swept along in Supply... Chain roles since then). Previously I had found it hard to find graphic-design roles due to having no experience (how do you get experience without being given opportunities!?) Having the course on my CV showed I was willing to learn on my own time, had an interest in the subject, and now had a knowledge of affiliate and online graphic-design. I would not have got this job unless I did this course – it’s as simple as that! I start in June and no doubt I will use what I have learnt on the course a lot
The Diploma in Online graphic-design is the perfect introduction for anyone wishing to venture into the online graphic-design arena. Shaw Academy not only deliver their promise but go the extra mile to ensure a 100% targeted, hands-on, tuition and their student support service matches colleges where you would expected to spend many 000s of pounds. Even after the first tuition sessions I was able to look at the internet from a completely new and productive perspective.
