Video Description

Delve into the world of web design and Dreamweaver with this hands-on, step-by-step course hosted by award-winning software trainer and designer, Geoff Blake.

Then, it’s on to building a fully functional web layout from the ground up. You’ll learn how to construct your design, insert navigation menus, and test your work for usability. Handling text, graphics, and setting up a well-built set of site-wide CSS rules to control it all brings your site together; and Geoff even takes you through the process of rolling out your website, and taking your site live by uploading it to a live web server.
