Website Design Tutorials
Article by Elijah James
If you were to ask most website owners (keep in mind that we’re not necessarily talking about professional web designers or other IT professionals here) what the best way is to learn web design, they would say that they found website design tutorials to be the most helpful resource. Like any other kind of tutorial, they are designed to take you step by step through specific tasks so that you can see just what you have to do to get from beginning to end.
A lot of people prefer using tutorials on website design rather than using a book on a specific programming language, a piece of software or taking a series of web design classes since a tutorial’s approach to instruction is a more concrete, easy to use set of information. Each step is a specific action which you can do immediately; a tutorial teaches you how to perform complex tasks by breaking them down into a series of simple tasks. With a little repetition, it’s easy to master many things (including some aspects of website design) this way.
Another advantage of using tutorials to teach yourself website design is that a tutorial gives you just what you need to know right now. You don’t have to learn everything there is to know about, say, the Perl scripting language in order to do one small job when you could read a tutorial about exactly what you need to do at the moment. It is very difficult indeed to find a situation that someone else hasn’t already run into and written a tutorial about, at least in the field of web design.
Tutorials also allow you to learn whenever you like and at your own pace, unlike traditional classroom instruction. Whether the tutorial in question is a book, an article on a website or a video, you can read, watch, or listen to the tutorial whenever you like and if you’re trying to come to grips with an especially complex or difficult task, you can take all the time you need to master each step of the process before you move on to the next.
When you’re trying to learn web design or to solve a particular problem you’ve run into along the way as you build or maintain your site, chances are that you’d like to be able to overcome whatever hurdle you’ve come across so that you can move on to the next challenge. That’s where website design tutorials really excel. Since they’re generally short and focused on a particular issue, they are a great way to not only learn how to solve problems which you can’t find a solution to on your own, but if it fits with your learning style, to learn web design in general. If you enjoy problem solving, you can always teach yourself, turning to tutorials only when you’re truly stumped.
Many of us learn best from tutorials, since they allow us to see (whether in pictures or words) exactly how it’s done – and when you’re able to see something for yourself, you’re much more likely to understand and remember what you’ve learned
