Site Development Associate teaches you essential Web page development skills. You will learn to develop Web sites using Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and Extensible HTML (XHTML). You will learn to write code manually, as well as use graphical user interface (GUI) authoring tools. You will also learn to insert images, create hyperlinks, and add tables, forms and frames to your Web pages.

In addition to learning about XHTML and HTML coding, you will learn about CGI and use it to connect Web pages to databases. Other topics include validating your XHTML code, recognizing the importance of Internet marketing and search engine optimization, using style sheets to format Web page content, and implementing fundamental design concepts. Throughout the course, you will learn how Web sites are developed as managed projects. You will also identify e-commerce solutions and relate Web site development to business goals.

Site Development Associate provides an introduction to tasks, job roles and careers in Web development. This course will teach you to work as a productive part of a Web site development team. Hands-on labs include real-world scenarios based on a previously live version of the Habitat For Humanity site. Note that students will build prototype pages using Habitat For Humanity content. This content is provided by Habitat For Humanity with permission to use it in labs teaching site development skills. The prototype pages that students build do not necessarily represent, duplicate or simulate the current live Habitat For Humanity Web site, which can be visited at

  • IT professionals
