Community Attends Web Design Workshop at Rasmussen College

The Rasmussen College Fargo campus held an exciting web design workshop in August. The four hour workshop was packed with web design essentials, such as page analysis, design, concept development and site organization. The instructor then moved on to html structure, links and imagery and also dived pretty deep into CSS. The workshop ended with some banner animation in flash and a discussion of ftp space, domain names and blogs.

“Being introduced to web design essentials like html and flash was great,” said Sally Showalter who is currently looking for a job. Showalter was one of 15 attendees. Together they moved seamlessly throughout the workshop. They come from many different backgrounds, vocations, and skill levels. Some worked at the local Chamber of Commerce. Others local design companies, news outlets or have retired. Overall, attendees say they felt confident they gained the skills needed to start the web design process.

"I enjoyed learning something new about something I had been interested in, but knew very little about,” said Jamie Hagen, employee at Sanford Health. “It was a great basis to determine if I want to learn more."  

“It was empowering,” said Molly McLain of The Arts Center. “I learned how to make a website.”
