Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Susan Simkins, and welcome to my course, Semantic HTML. I am a senior web designer at Oracle. HTML is a foundation of the web, and yet one of the most overlooked aspects of websites and applications. Many HTML elements aren't well understood or get misused. While visually there may be little difference, using semantic markups is one of the best single ways to improve usability, especially in regards to accessibility. In this course, we'll learn the how and why of using different semantic elements. First, we'll learn about text elements that group content and add meaning to words and phrases. Next, we'll learn how to use semantic elements to enhance forms and tables. Finally, we'll learn about sectioning elements, document outlines, and how they can improve the accessibility and search engine optimization of websites. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create semantic markup that will set the foundation for great user experiences in your projects. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with HTML. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to create better web experiences with the Semantic HTML course, at Pluralsight.
