Entry requirements
Prior to attending this web development training course, students should be familiar with using personal computers with a mouse and keyboard and possess basic typing skills. You should be comfortable with using computers and have basic experience with the underlying operating system (Windows or Macintosh). Specifically, you should be able to launch (start) and close programs; navigate to information stored on the computer; and manage files and folders. Familiarity with web browsers would be an advantage.

What you need to know before you enrol
The Course will be taught on Apple mac computers in a bright, comfortable modern studio. It would be helpful if you have some familiarity with Macintosh computers and know how to use standard menus and commands. However this is not an essential requirement as these skills can be picked up during the course. As part of the course you will be asked to read tutorials, take notes and discuss related topics. As this is a computer-based course students will be encouraged to be aware of fatigue and eye strain and to take breaks when necessary. You may wish to revise and practise at home to reinforce what you have learned during the lesson. Information about computers and relevant software will be provided by the tutor. Many of the Art & Design studios have limited accessibility. If you have restricted mobility please contact the Art & Design Administrator before enrolling.

What you will need for your class
It would be helpful for you to bring a pen and notepad, as you may wish to take notes. Also recommended is a storage device such as USB Memory stick (minimum 8GB) or mini-hard drive. This is for storage of media during the course and of your work at the end. It would be beneficial to your studies if you possess the software for use at home. As a student of Morley College you are entitled to a discount on Adobe CC Software. Your tutor can advise you on how to apply for this.
