Web Design: Introductory, Fifth Edition is intended for a one-unit introductory web design course, or a web authoring course that teaches web design techniques and also covers HTML, creating device- and platform independent websites using responsive web design techniques, CSS, and SEO. The objectives of this book are to:

• Present a practical approach to web design using a blend of traditional development guidelines with current technologies and trends, including responsive web design

• Give students an in-depth understanding of web design concepts and techniques that are essential to planning, creating, testing, publishing, and maintaining web sites

• Define and describe in detail the six steps in developing a solid web design plan: identify the website’s purpose and target audience; determine the website’s general content; select the website’s structure; specify the website’s navigation system; design the look and feel of the website; and test, publish, and maintain the website

• Present the material in a full-color, visually appealing and exciting, easy-to-read manner with a format that invites students to learn

• Provide students with Toolkit marginal elements that indicate related content available in the appendices

• Direct students to the web to do additional research and allow them to evaluate and assess the design techniques and technologies discussed in the book by providing them with search terms in the Q&A marginal elements, Your Turn exercises, and end- of-chapter exercises

• Provide an ongoing case study and assignments that promote student participation in learning about web design

This course provides the beginning programmer with a guide to developing applications using the Java programming language. Java is popular among professional programmers because it can be used to build visually interesting graphical user interface (GUI) and Web-based applications. Java also provides an excellent environment for the beginning programmer—a student can quickly build useful programs while learning the basics of structured and object-oriented programming techniques.

Indigenous Research Methodologies and Methods  focuses on the cultural aspect of Indigenous research methods as they relate to all sciences. Included are current theories of Indigenous research, explorations of the purpose of Indigenous research, both historical and contemporary; roles and responsibilities of an Indigenous researcher; oral and recorded traditions and sources of information; and other important issues that face Indigenous researchers, both now and in future. To this end, the following questions are emphasized: to whom does the research belong? Whose benefit and interests are at stake? Who is the researcher and what is their relationship to the research community? Who carries out the research? Who controls and disseminates the results?

A project-based approach will be used. Topics include:formulas and functions, charts, Web queries, what-if analysis, data tables, worksheet as a database, working with multiple worksheets and workbooks, solver, goal seeking, macros and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), formula auditing, data validation, importing data, pivot charts, and pivot tables.
