Web publishing is a large and important industry. It can be considered as part of the computing or publishing industry, and it has important implications in other areas. USQ graduates in computing, and many other disciplines, need expertise in this area. This course will provide them with skills in document creation, publishing, and the more technical aspects of web publishing. The course will emphasise the generation of web materials in accordance with relevant standards and recommendations.

This course conveys the essential skills and knowledge required to create and maintain high quality web documents. The course will cover document design and preparation, as well as the more technical issues of web-publishing such as client-side scripting and input validation. Program material may only be available via the web. Practical classes will be provided for internal students. While the course will use Javascript as the programming language, prior experience with it is not required. However, both a general understanding of and basic experience with programming in a high level language is essential. Limited experience with using Linux/Unix is also recommended.
