Student Websites from the class "Web Development"
The students' websites were built on a responsive CSS framework called Skeleton, which changes the layout of their content depending on whether their site is viewed on a tablet, smartphone, or computer. In most instances, students wrote custom styles targeted to each type of device to ensure that their content was presented in the best possible way. Most all of the students used CSS3 style rules and incorporated jQuery plugins to present their photographs, videos, and/or graphics in a slideshow or HTML5 video player.
