Instructor Resources Now Available for HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites

August 7, 2012

New academic resources correspond with best-selling book to assist instructors in teaching web design and development courses

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) August 07, 2012

John Wiley & Sons, Inc. announces new resources for web design and development tutors. This extensive set of animated lecture slides and Q+A sheets corresponds with Jon Duckett´s best-selling book HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites (Wiley, 978-1-1180-0818-8, November 2011, http://www.htmlandcssbook.com).

  •      Animated Lecture Slides: in both Keynote and PowerPoint formats to assist in teaching students in a visually engaging manner. Each presentation corresponds to a specific chapter in HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites. Instructors are free to modify the slides, as needed, to work with class lectures.
  •      Question and Answer Sheets: a set of questions corresponding with each chapter of the book to test students´ understanding of the topic, as well as answer sheets for instructors. The Q+A Sheets are simple to print and hand out to students, and can be useful in monitoring the progress of classes.

HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites has quickly become a favorite among designers and instructors as an excellent reference and course companion. It has achieved widespread acclaim for its groundbreaking design approach, which teaches code in a highly visual manner. Each page of the book introduces a new topic using straightforward explanations accompanied by bite-sized code samples. At the end of each chapter there is an in-depth example that puts together the techniques it has covered. The academic resources were created with the same attention to detail as the book, providing up-to-date, visually inspiring tools for those teaching HTML & CSS.

In a recent book review for HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites, Patrick McNeil, author of The Web Designers’ Idea Book and content director for HOW Interactive Design, states, “If you´re trying to learn code for the first time, this book will be a remarkable companion. And as someone who coaches many designers moving into the development world, I´ve found a new go-to manual.” McNeil continues, “Bottom line, if you´re relatively new to HTML and CSS, this book will be an invaluable asset. I definitely expect to see it showing up as required reading in the design departments of many universities.”

HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites is available for purchase online and at retailers nationwide. Educational discounts for bulk purchases of the book are available via Wiley´s academic sales representatives.
