Three Down, Seven to Go!

Well I've just realised that I hadn't updated this blog, having completed the third week of my course in Web Page Design, so here goes!

Week Three was a bit of a challenge, not least as I was tired going into the college that night, after what seemed a long working day, it wasn't particularly a long day, but so much crammed into the day, and I didn't have a great night's sleep the night before, so that didn't help either!

So, into college I went, and into the class, I tried to get there early, so I could get cracking, which I did, and this week, I kicked off learning about Lists and how to build an ordered list & unordered list to start off with, so I could find out how to have lists with numbers, and also roman numerals, then moving onto nested lists which combined both.

Having completed the exercise in that workbook, it was time to move on to using Tables in web pages, and this was certainly a bulky part of the workbook, with different subjects covering:

  • Size of the tables,
  • Borders,
  • Positioning data within a cell,
  • Multiple cells & rows,
  • How to centre a table on a page,
  • Controlling space in and around cells,

Then completing an exercise on that, which also included adding colour to the table.

Having completed that, and it did take me a while to complete it, it was time to move on to Spanning a cell across columns & rows, this included two or three exercises, which again took up most of my time, and unfortunately by the end of this part, my eyes had just had it!

So, I upped and left half an hour prior to the end of the scheduled finishing time, something you are obviously free to do as an adult doing night school, it feels weird, as you still feel like asking the teacher if you can leave early, like you would of had to do had you been at school, only at school, the teacher would have refused your request point blank, so it's nice to have the freedom at this stage in life!!

So, on my way out, and perhaps as I was feeling sort of guilty at leaving early, I picked up the next couple of workbooks, which I'm going to work on tonight, before heading back to college tomorrow.

The next two sections being Frames & Linking Frames, so hopefully I'll know a bit more about those by the time the morning comes round!!!

That's it for tonight, I'll post another update for Week 4 in a couple of days time.
