Course Outline

In this HTML5 training class, you'll start by getting your hands dirty and jumping right into HTML5 code. You'll learn about the new HTML5 structural, semantic, and form tags, how to use Canvas to create drawings natively in the browser, how to work with HTML5 audio and video, the new methods for storing variables client-side, and how you build applications that work offline. Along the way, you'll learn about the current state of browser support for HTML5 and the theory behind all the changes that have been made.

If you are new to HTML, you should take our Introduction to HTML class first. Everything covered in that course is relevant to HTML5 and is prerequisite knowledge for this class.
