I have seen several posts recently referring to great resources for those learning web design.  I invite you to drop your favorites here so there is a common thread.  I am always on the look-out for good resources to use in the classroom.  :teehee:

One of the best ways (IMO) of learning HTML basics is having someone installa CMS (content management system) on your host, and that way you have a fully functional site.  Then you can play with HTML goodies within announcments, user created pages and such, and still have your site operational.

My best adice for people new to web design, is to learn the actually HTML. It's really not that hard. Once you know it, you'll be so glad you do!For a great HTML editor, HTML-Kit.My favorite site to learn HTML is LissaExplains.com, but there are TONS of sites out there.Once you've got HTML down, go for CSS!!!

I've also used Crimson Editor and would recommend it B) I like it because it is simple and doesn't really have the tools found in other editors like HTML-Kit etc.Editors like HTML-Kit are great for webdesign, I like Crimson editor for other languages like Perl etc.

I can honestly say that I learned 50% of all my HTML knowledge from http://www.htmlgoodies.com/A very informative site and *perfect* for beginners.

Nowadays a website is usually interactive to some extent and requires a database. So if you're not a PHP programmer install a CMS. I use Joomla! but I think for choice Drupal may be a close 2nd. MHOFWIW.If you make websites do consider accessibility. Google "accessible websites" to research this subject.

Can'tIt's been just a bit of a time since this thread was last visited.  We are now using Moodle to set up our academic web sites.  We will be offering much of our course offerings next year based upon Moodle.  Moodle is open source to boot.  We sure prefer it to Drupal around my area.
