Unit 5: Scripting


In this course, you have learned to create web pages from the ground up. You started in Unit 2 by creating the content and structure of web pages using HTML. In Unit 3 you learned to control the presentation of your content using CSS, and in Unit 4 you learned to create graphics to supplement that presentation. Now, in Unit 5, you will learn to add behavior to your pages using scripts. Scripts make web pages interactive. They make it possible to change content and presentation dynamically as the user interacts with the page. You will learn the difference between client-side and server-side scripting, and will get some hands-on experience using the most common client-side scripting language, JavaScript. Finally, you will learn to apply elements of everything you've learned in this course—HTML, CSS, JavaScript, standards, and accessibility— in order to add video to web pages.
