There aren't really any prerequisites for this course.
HTML is not a programming language per se, which otherwise has the provision of data types, operators and logical constructs to control the flow of execution in a given program; it's purely just a markup language used to define documents.
If you want to get into web development, one of the most popular and demanding careers of the current era, you have to begin with HTML no matter what kind of specialization you wish to do later on.
HTML is the fundamental building block of the World Wide Web. It works by marking up some pieces of text to have a special meaning with the help of elements. There is a large collection of elements in HTML. An HTML page is just an alamgamation of these elements together.
Learning HTML is extremely easy and intuitive. There isn't really that much to wrap the mind around in HTML — the grammar has a few rules, the basic terminology and concepts are very straightforward, and some advanced ideas are also pretty simple to digest. It's all peaches and cream to become capable of writing HTML in less than a week. Seriously.
This course makes sure that by the end of it, you have a profound knowledge of not just HTML but also what to learn up next and why, and even where to code.
Going into more details, by the end of this course, you'll have a firm grasp over the following:
- What exactly is HTML and what do the terms 'hypertext' and 'markup language' mean.
- How and where to write HTML, and then view its output in the browser. Also, we'll see what is Visual Studio Code and how it's the de facto editor these days for coding.
- The basics of HTML, including but not limited to: HTML elements and tags; setting the document's title, working with HTML attributes; a coding style guide to follow; and so on.
- The different ways to work with text in HTML, for example, as headings, paragraphs, bold and italic text, superscripts and subscripts, preformatted blocks, definitions, abbreviations, marked portions, quotations and citations, and much more.
- What are HTML entities, the different ways of denoting entities in HTML, and why we really need them.
- How to work with text representing code or the output generated by code or even the keyboard input involved in given programs, via the elements
- What is meant by 'metadata' and which elements in HTML are used to provide metadata for a given webpage. These include
<link>, in addition to a few others.

Foundation3 hrs 38 mins 13 chaptersDescription:
In this unit, we shall explore the very basics of HTML, starting with a detailed introduction to what exactly is HTML. We'll create our very first HTML program and then take it from there onwards to discover such different ideas as working with text (headings, paragraphs, definitions, quotations, etc.), adding characters using entities, working with text representing code, and setting up metadata elements.Introduction2 minsGet Started22 minsBasics19 minsBasics Quiz11 questionsBrief Intro ExerciseVery easyText16 minsText Quiz12 questionsPythagorean Theorem ExerciseVery easyTwo Paragraphs ExerciseVery easyLists12 minsLists Quiz8 questionsPound Cake ExerciseEasyAdvanced Text23 minsEntities6 minsCode6 minsDiv and Span13 minsMetadata23 minsURIs31 minsHyperlinks29 minsIframes16 mins

In this unit, we shall unravel all the elements in HTML that are used to set up metadata of an HTML document. These include, but aren't limited to,
<script>. We'll see the different kinds of metadata that could be configured for a document, such as the viewport's behavior, or the favicon.
Semantic HTML1 hr 23 mins 7 chaptersDescription:
In this unit, we shall talk about HTML from the perspective of semantics, i.e. meaning. We'll explore what exactly is meant by semantic HTML and how could, and ideally should, we leverage it in our websites. We'll cover a host of semantic HTML elements, such as
<section>, and so on.
Frequently asked questions
Is HTML easy to learn?
A big yes! HTML is one of the most simplest of web technologies to learn. In fact, people completely new to the world of web development are first made to learn HTML, since it forms the very foundation of the web.
