Advanced Styling with Responsive Design

This course is a part of Web Design for Everybody: Basics of Web Development & Coding, a 5-course Specialization series from Coursera.

It used to be the case that everyone viewed webpages on about the same size screen. But with the explosion of the use of smartphones to access the Internet, the landscape of design has completely changed. People viewing your site will now expect that it will perform regardless of the platform (smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer). This ability to respond to any platform is called responsive design. This course will expand upon the basic knowledge of CSS3 to include topics such as wireframes, fluid design, media queries, and the use of existing styling paradigms such as Bootstrap. After the course, learners will be able to: ** Explain the mobile-first paradigm and the importance of wireframes in the design phase ** Create sites that behave across a range of platforms ** Utilize existing design frameworks such as Bootstrap This is the fourth course in the Web Design For Everybody specialization. A basic understanding of HTML and CSS is expected when you enroll in this class. Additional courses focus on adding interactivity with the JavaScript Programming Language and completing a capstone project.

responsive design in 25 reviews

Responsive design was a bit mysterious to me before I took this course, and now I feel confident in how to design a mobile-first site that will look great on any screen size.

I was aware of responsive design before starting this course but this really helped to strengthen my knowledge.

It was a great introduction to responsive design and bootstrap.

I missed more responsive design techniques for those who wants to code by themselves.

This course changed my ignorance now understood the importance of frame work.Thank you very much for effective teaching.Regards, Thank you so much for this very informative course on responsive design.

thnx Great Course for any web designer.

Really great basic concepts for beginners in the web design It was simple and clear.

This was a great course for those just getting started with Web Design or those who need a refresher course.

She gives a good real world experience without any fluff, If I see other (web design related) courses taught by her, I'm already 50% likely to take the course because of that before I have a clue what the course is about.

And Colleen van Lent is an excellent teacher!

I am not an expert yet in Responsive Design, but she gave me the tools and the motivation to become one.Merci beaucoup, Colleen van Lent!

I am really happy with this course as with the other 3 courses I finished from the Web Design for Everybody specialisation by Ms. Colleen van Lent and her team!

Dr. Colleen van Lent presents a solid overview of the covered topics.

Thanks Dr. Colleen Van Lent, University of Michigan and Coursera to make possible the wishes of many students!

The course introduces the concept of responsive design both through manually coding your own webpages and using frameworks, taking Bootstrap as an example.Over three short videos the instructor gives just enough for students to start using Bootstrap while also giving them the tools to continue their later independent development.Colleen van Lent is an exceptional instructor who manages to be engaging and motivating while always remaining 'human'.I am not altogether happy with the decision to make all peer reviewed assignments optional, even though I understand the reasoning.

Colleen van Lent is a fantastic instructor.
