LS312 B.Y.O.L.: Effectively Use Dreamweaver for Your eLearning

2:30 PM - 5:00 PM Wednesday, March 16

Tools

Palm 4

Developing eLearning content within a website is very easy if you know your tools, tags, rules, etc. The problem is that the rules keep changing. The way web content was built two years ago does not follow today’s best practices. More and more power has also been given to CSS. Applying some of these new rules can not only be difficult to remember, but knowing how and when to apply these rules adds to the complexity.

In this session, using the latest version of Dreamweaver, you will learn how to navigate the interface to build your site. You will learn a number of tricks within Dreamweaver to build complex eLearning pages and how to get Dreamweaver to do all the heavy lifting in writing your HTML/CSS code. You will examine the new code view that can reduce your typing from minutes to seconds.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create a template
  • How to build a web page structure
  • How to use the interface to create CSS rules
  • How to apply interactions through the interface
  • How to write HTML and CSS code by hand using unique shortcuts

Audience:
Novice and intermediate designers, developers, project managers, and managers.

Technology discussed in this session:
Dreamweaver.

Participant technology requirements:
Mac or PC and Dreamweaver CC 2015.
