The 19 project-based lessons in this book show students step-by-step the key techniques for working in Deamweaver CC and how to create web pages for the modern web and publish a finished site.

They’ll learn to create a professional website without having to write code by hand. This completely revised Creative Cloud edition also covers HTML5, CSS3, and media queries for responsive web design. The book also shows students how to create HTML-based headings, paragraphs, lists, and tables; insert graphics and Photoshop Smart Objects; add links to text and images; apply cascading styles sheets; and customize the Dreamweaver workspace. They’ll also learn to add interactive elements to their sites, such as HTML5-compatible video and animation, get guidance for working with code, and in the end publish a finished site to the Web. Downloadable lesson files are available so students can work along with the book.


Instructor Notes for this title will be available soon on the Pearson Higher Ed site.
