Online web design courses are a great way to save money on expensive web designers. If you own a small business, or want to promote yourself more effectively online, then your own website is a vital tool. UK Distance Learning & Publishing offers several online web design courses, as well as a selection of social media courses, which can help you to make a splash online. In this article we’ll go through some of the main online web design courses we offer. Hopefully this will help you decide which course is for you.
Beginner’s Web Design
This course (as you might expect) takes learners right back to basics, before building slowly towards more advanced concepts. This includes lessons on how to understand basic ‘HTML’ script, using graphic and video content, and much more. By the end of the course you should feel confident building basic web pages, and you will be much more IT literate in a general sense as well.
Responsive Web Design
This is one of our more advanced online web design courses. The subject it deals with is absolutely vital for people who want to make a real impact in today’s online environment. Gone are the days when everyone used big, lumbering desktops to go online. Even laptops are no longer the main way people access the web. Mobile phones and tablet computers are now the dominant force in the world of the internet. A responsive web design course will teach students how to adapt their websites to work across these different kinds of platforms, resizing and re-arranging themselves to fit a range of devices. This will ensure that people using your website will not be inconvenienced. It only takes a few seconds of trying to use a non-responsive website before users get frustrated and move away. If you don’t want this to happen, then responsive web design is the only answer.
Social Media Marketing
This course isn’t exactly a web design course, but it can be used in conjunction with one. Having an active social media presence is a great way to drive traffic to your website. If you’re a business, it’s also a fantastic way to speak to your customers, whether that’s through them leaving reviews, messaging you with questions, complaints (shock horror) or requests. Our social media marketing course will teach you how to use a range of social media platforms, like Facebook and Twitter, as tool to help you make the most of your website and/or business.
These three online web design courses are just a sample of what we offer in this area. We have many more web design courses, as well as large range of IT courses that will help you become more technically savvy.
