HTML, CSS & Bootstrap 

Web Design: HTML, CSS & Bootstrap (Workshop)

Prerequisites: No previous knowledge is required.

This workshop is ideal for anyone interested in learning how to design and create their own (non-LSE) web pages using HTML, CSS & Bootstrap. 

Our Web Design IT Practical workshops have been re-designed so that learners can work at their own pace and attend as many sessions as they need to work their way from basic HTML coding to learning how to customise web pages using CSS and Bootstrap templates. Student Training Advisors will be on hand to help out if you get stuck.

There are five discrete tasks to complete and all need to be completed in order as they build upon the previous task:

  • Task 1: HTML Pages
  • Task 2: HTML Sites
  • Task 3: CSS Format
  • Task 4a: Bootstrap
  • Task 4b: CSS Layout

Computers will be provided for this workshop.
