Why take this course? As time goes on, fewer and fewer users are accessing websites from desktop computers. A lot of browsing the web has moved to smartphones and tablets, as well as TVs and even watches. You need to be able to design websites to be responsive – to look good – no matter what device people choose to view them from. 

This course will show you how to do that by teaching you responsive web design and through creating your own web page.
