Web.Comp May 2020

Beginners Stream

The Beginners stream has had a complete overhaul for this run of Web.Comp, including:

  • All new slides: We've simplified the language and updated the content to better suit students in early and middle high school. Topics include:
    • Intro to creating websites using HTML & CSS;
    • Styling text, changing fonts, and adding colour;
    • Adding images and background images;
    • Adding links to other pages and websites;
    • HTML document structure;
    • Page layout, including margins, borders, padding, layout modes, and grouping elements together;
    • Styling with classes, adding icons, and hover text.
  • Open-ended problems: The problems have been reworked to be more open-ended, allowing students to flex their creativity while practising new HTML/CSS skills! The problems will still be marked by our auto-marker to test student solutions and award points.
  • Tournament: Once again, the Beginners stream will culminate in the Design Tournament. We'll provide an HTML document for students to style with CSS. Designs can be submitted into the Design Tournament, where students can vote for their favourites.
