ITIY3 Introduction to Web Publishing – 5 ECTS
This is a separate English version of the ITIY3 course, taught completely in English in periods 2 and 4! The Finnish version of the course (strongly recommended for Finnish speaking students) is available in periods 1 and 3.
NOTE! If you have enrolled for the course and you are only in cue or not accepted, you may still join the course if there are cancellations. You can inquire about vacancies after the first teaching session by contacting the course teacher.
The ITIY3 course is a basic course. You are not required to have previous web publishing experience. We are working with simple tools to edit text documents to create web pages, online tools to edit images and try the tools to create a WordPress site. During the course we use Google Chrome web browser to preview and to analyse web pages (Developer tool). The classes are in a computer classroom with Windows based computers and pre-installed software. You may use your own computer, install the same tools (all free, see the bottom of the page) or may use different software/ operation systems.
