My business partner Jans & I recently taught a 2-week, 4-night, 12-hour course on Web Design1 for CAIT, the Center for the Application of Information Technology at Washington University in St. Louis. It was a great course that was broken down into 9 sections:

  1. Design Patterns
  2. Design Theory: The Vitruvian Triad
  3. Design Principles
  4. The Design Process
  5. Design Structure: Design Patterns in Action
  6. Multimedia: Images, Audio, Video
  7. Color
  8. Fonts & Formatting
  9. Our Toolkit: What WebSanity Uses

I’m happy to share the slides from the course with everyone. They’re under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License, with the specific terms available on my website.

They’re available, so go nuts with ’em!

  1. I’m quite happy to announce that the next time we teach it, it’s going to be a 3-week, 6-night, 18-hour course instead. We’re scheduled for July, so if you’re interested, contact CAIT & sign up.
