Web Design I will give students the knowledge and skills needed to create and administer basic web pages, whether as a hobby or as a stepping stone to an eventual career.
As an additional benefit, Web Design I continues the Living the Answer tradition of education that focuses on understanding and reasoning, not merely the memorization of information.
