We shall examine the structure of the Internet and the World Wide Web as well as design and create web sites. Students who have obtained credit for, or are currently enrolled in a CMPT course at the 200 division or higher, CMPT 125, 135 or 170, or IAT 265 or 267 may not take CMPT 165 for further credit. Breadth-Science.


This course introduces the basic techniques and technology of creating simple web sites. You'll learn how to use HTML5 to mark-up text, CSS to specify visual look and feel, and basic JavaScript to create more interactive and interesting web pages. In addition, we will discuss how some of the basic rules of good visual design apply to the creation of web pages. No previous experience with the web or programming is needed, although you will need access to a computer and Internet access (any operating system is acceptable). Please note that there is no required book for this course. Some students like to have a physical book as a reference, but all necessary HTML, CSS, and JavaScript resources are easily available online.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University.
