The 15 project-based lessons in this book show students step-by-step everything they need to know in order to use Dreamweaver CC to create a professional website without having to write code by hand. Because it’s often useful to understand the code underlying a web site, the book starts with primers on HTML and CSS (the building blocks of website code) and show students how to plan a web site. They then learn to design individual web pages, adding styled text, images, and interactive elements to make their designs attractive and engaging. Along the way, the book provides guidance for working with code, and in the end shows how to publish a finished site to the Web.

The online companion files include all the necessary assets for students to complete the projects featured in each chapter as well as eBook updates when Adobe releases new features for Creative Cloud customers. And new to this release, all buyers of the book get full access to the Web Edition: a Web-based version of the complete eBook enhanced with video and interactive multiple-choice quizzes.

As always with the Classroom in a Book, Instructor Notes are available for instructors to download.
