This free online CSS styling course has been put together to upskill website designers and creators to style professional websites using CSS. The course kicks off by teaching you the basics of CSS and how to set it up, before learning the meanings and functions of selectors, properties, values and units, how to do comments, implement colors to elements in CSS, the functions of margins and padding, differences between classes and IDs and the roles of grouping and nesting in styling websites. Manipulating text properties and borders is the next bit of content that is discussed and then some other themes explored include the various types of pseudo-classes, shorthand properties, and how to implement background images to the scene.

The focus then shifts to pseudo-elements and the manipulation thereof as well as one of the most important sections which explores layouts. Getting the website layout right is a critical part of the user experience and some of the layout types you will become familiar with are the static layout, relative layout, and absolute layout, among a few others. Styling individual elements adds a great aesthetic to websites and this CSS tutorial teaches you float and clear properties, how to create rounded corners for elements in CSS, creating shadows, advanced selectors and -colours, how to use the attribute selector, transitions and transformations, and how to apply different CSS rules to different devices using media query.

Styling a website is very important because it provides a good user experience and it makes the website and pages aesthetically pleasing to users. This, in turn, will determine how often people visit your website and how long they stay on your website. A well-styled website can help create a good impression on prospective customers and also helps your website visitors’ access and navigate your website with ease. If you are a website development professional or otherwise involved in programming, then knowing how to use CSS to style websites can give you a great boost in your career and open a range of job opportunities.
