Resources for Web Site Design
Are you needing some help to get started in learning or teaching Web design? Look no further. Compiled below are some references to get you started.
Overview of Web Design
A good place to start is to ask what are you trying to accomplish with the Web site? Sometimes, a simple downloadable PDF can achieve the same results rather than spending the resources and time to learn how to create a Web site. If you would like some help here, please contact Cary Hazelwood, Web & Learning Services Coordinator, for information on how to approach your project. Please, no inquiries from outside the college.
