The entire Web Workshop is a training tool. This page sumarizes and gives links to the various training resources on the Webshop pages, and also points to other training resources that cover topics that we don't. 

For example, our pages on software used for making Web pages focus mainly on the programs we use. On this page we provide an outline of the topics covered by our Webware pages, but we also provide links to other ways of learning about software -- most of them discuss programs or types of programs that we don't cover, and some of them express opinions that we don't share.

Training Resources on the Internet  

Introduction to Web Design and Web Design -- More Than Meets the Eye are two tutorials from The Web Developer's Virtual Library.  The first covers "the nuts and bolts of HTML," while the second approaches the topic from "architectural principles" intended to optomize the users experience and benefit.  The information architecture approach is explored further in Design in Infospace

The WDVL covers many other topics just as richly, with tutorials, resources, links, tools and whatever else is available that's relevant, provided for each topic -- Graphics, much more about HTML, Multimedia, Software ... go see for yourself.

Basic Training (Boot Camp)

"When I first got my computer I was afraid to push all the buttons for fear it would break or some god-awful thing happen. The more familiar I became with it, the more confident I was and my fear diminished."
