Wanted: Website tutorials using CSS

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by smudgie, Jun 7, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    I'm after some nice easy to follow tutorials I can introduce my students too using stylesheets. I want to move away from tables ASAP but building a site using CSS can be a bit complicated and I'm not sure of the best way to introduce this method so they can build a basic site without complicating things. Thanks

    I like the w3schools stuff as it lets you play with a bit of code and see the result directly

    Oh yes, just be aware that the codepunk site set off 2 different alarms on my machine.


     
  3. Good stuff! How old are your students? I'm actually building something at the moment which is to help kids learn how to build sites with CSS, but it's not quite ready yet.
    You might find it easier to give them a very basic template to start off with that they can tinker with rather than giving them a blank canvas. (I actually learnt my first CSS from editing templates in MySpace). Also, if you have Firefox, install Firebug on their machines https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/firebug/ it's a really good tool that lets them point at things and inspect and edit the CSS live on webpages.
    There are some video tutorials here: http://membership.thinkvitamin.com/library/html-css although you have to pay a subscription. They're very good though, and some of the videos are free.
    http://www.cssbasics.com/ - these look like quite straightforward tutorials, but not as interactive.
