How Are Webpages Created?

1. A webpage is made with HTML

2. The page is formatted using CSS

3. Interactive elements are added in Javascript

Videos from Google Code University that provide a more in depth look at how HTML, CSS, and Javascript work together.


Get Started Making Websites with HTML

Interactive HTML exercises - For beginners from CodeAcademy

A begginer's tutorial from W3Schools - Includes an online HTML editor

An in-depth set of tutorial from HTML Dog - A clean and well-written tutorial.  Use in combination with Thimble.


Next Steps

Learn Javascript to add interactive elements to your website:

Get started with jQuery, a very popular and useful library that makes javascript more powerful:


Assorted Tools
