Sign up to Coursera courses for free Learn how

If you want to take your website to the next level, the ability to incorporate interactivity is a must. But adding some of these types of capabilities requires a stronger programming language than HTML5 or CSS3, and JavaScript can provide just what you need. With just a basic understanding of the language, you can create a page that will react to common events such as page loads, mouse clicks & movements, and even keyboard input.

This course will introduce you to the basics of the JavaScript language. We will cover concepts such as variables, looping, functions, and even a little bit about debugging tools. You will understand how the Document Object Model (DOM) is used by JavaScript to identify and modify specific parts of your page. After the course, learners will be able to react to DOM Events and dynamically alter the contents and style of their page. The class will culminate in a final project - the creation of an interactive HTML5 form that accepts and verifies input.

This is the third course in the Web Design For Everybody specialization. A basic understanding of HTML and CSS is expected when you enroll in this class. Additional courses focus on enhancing the styling with responsive design and completing a capstone project.

Good class! These lessons got my brain thinking about the uses of JS to make my page interactive, and really inspired me to do more. I would like to see a class on back-end JavaScript with nodeJS and perhaps a class on ReactJS. I hope those will be coming soon, but this class was good!

This was a good class for those beginning in JavaScript. I wished the class had been a little longer, perhaps diving into back-end JavaScript, but overall this is a great course to add functionality and interactivity to your website.
