The same professional training, now online.

Our live, instructor-led, virtual classes are capped at 20 students to guarantee the same level of personal attention you’d get in a traditional lecture room, with the same accountability for attendance and participation. This, combined with the convenience and accessibility of online training makes for a powerful and unique learning experience that offers the best of both worlds.

Interactive and personal.
Forget pre-recorded classes and one-size-fits-all assignments – our virtual classrooms combine the best of remote learning with live lectures and an interactive group of peers for a unique learning experience, every time.

Meet your lecturers_
Pierre Marqua

Pierre began his career in digital design in 2001. “Teaching is pure passion, it brings a deep sense of job satisfaction when you see the light bulbs go on.”

Please note all our lecturers work as a team, and are booked based on their independent schedules. As such, course allocations are subject to change.

Pierre is an absolutely fantastic teacher. I started actually using the skills I was learning from day one. It is so encouraging to learn in such a practical manner. Apart from being an awesome teacher, Pierre was great fun to be around!

I would suggest these classes to anyone – the lecturer can teach novices to extremely experienced learners. He has good classroom management skills and maintains open communication with all learners. This was an excellent learning experience for me.

Learn to create responsive, device agnostic websites with the latest HTML & CSS techniques.

Welcome to the world wide web! The internet has become ubiquitous in our daily lives, transcending desktops and extending connectivity to smartphones, tablets, cars, household appliances and other electronics. Accordingly, conventional web design no longer meets the requirements of an increasingly connected society that have demands for responsive flexibility and a great user experience.

In this 6 week course, learners will learn the principles and practice of becoming a modern web developer by taking a device­agnostic approach to web design in order to compete across multiple platforms (i.e. desktops, smartphones, tablets and phablets).

Starting from the very basics, learners will be introduced to the latest versions of HTML and CSS – ­the two core front­end languages of the web – in order to effectively structure information and bring their own visual web designs to life.

By taking part in this course you will gain technical insight about the web design process, learn how to structure a flexible website, handle typography and hierarchies, place images and media, create forms, build layouts and learn to use HTML frameworks (such as Twitter Bootstrap). With latest techniques in CSS3 you will learn how to effectively adapt a web page to multiple device sizes using media queries and enhance the experience with custom typefaces, animations and effects all using little or no JavaScript.

In this course you will learn the following skills:

Working With HTML5 / CSS3 | Working in a web environment | Working with tags | Connecting CSS to HTML | The box model | Web typography | Web color | Static web layout | Basic Menu generation | Working with background images | Advanced CSS selectors | Building forms | Adding basic javascript plugins to HTML
