This unit was previously known as DIG251 Internet Design Introduction.

This unit introduces students to the concepts, skills and toolsets required to understand and apply user-focus design for the web. The unit will enable students to create a basic website that employs the most current web authoring standards. By synthesising web usability theory with a project-centre approach, students will learn to develop and iterate upon an effective user-centred website interface.
