Course Name: Adobe Dreamweaver Level 1

What is Dreamweaver:

Dreamweaver is a professional visual design solution for building websites and Internet application features, without having to write any HTML code by hand. It's designed to be "what you see is what you get". What you design in the Dreamweaver 'document window' will be coded and placed in the document, so that the browser will display the page just as you see it in your Dreamweaver window. Making it a perfect choice for anyone without any web development experience. Dreamweaver has a larger array of features and functions, including some site management functions.

Course Overview

This course is designed primarily for new or prospective web designers, web developers, and visual designers who want to learn the basic features of Adobe Dreamweaver to design, build, and upload professional-looking websites. After completing this course, users will be able to create Web sites that include: Text, Tables, Graphics, and Links using the industry's leading web authoring tool.


  • To ensure your success, you must have a good understanding of your computer's filing system. For example, you should know how to manage files and folders, create and save files. It would be useful if you also had experience of navigating the Internet and websites. The course does not require any previous knowledge of HTML (language of the World Wide Web) but any HTML and/or CSS skills you may have would not be wasted.
