review- Web Design for Kids

Leave a comment


I am an html dunce. I can kind of follow basic tutorials to create buttons and gizmos for my blog, but I never really understood what I was doing or why it worked.

Enter Web Design for Kids (and Curious Grown-Ups!). It is a DVD that teaches html basics. It was a perfect fit for some like me! Brian Richardson assumes that the viewer knows nothing and even includes a lesson on File & Folder Management. Here a few of the subjects covered:

  • The 10 Basic Lines of Code
  • Coloring the Background and Letters
  • Making Letters Move Across the Screen
  • Designer Backgrounds
  • Changing Fonts
  • Adding Pictures

Funny Girl(12) and I watched the DVD while following along on the computer. In no time at all she had created a web page with a background, pictures, and scrolling text. I was thrilled to learn what some of the different abbreviations meant and how to change an existing code.

The Nitty Gritty:

There is a Summer Special price of $19.99 + $3.99 s&h for a limited time only.

Things I Like:

  • the ability to pause the DVD while we work on each step
  • detailed, but simple, instructions
  • lots of explanation – Brian would tell us to do something and just as I wondering why it was done that way, he would pop in and answer that very question
  • Click Drag Solutions supports several charities through the sale of this DVD

Value: I would definitely pay $19.99 for this product (not so sure about full price though). I have read pages of free tutorials on the web, but none of them presented html in a way that I could follow like this program does. (Ok, all you computer whizzes can quit snickering now :-)
