  4. JavaScript Application Programming

    The free online course JavaScript Application Programming will introduce you in a step-by-step manner to JavaScript programming concepts and functionality. JavaScript was created by Brendan Eich in 1995, became an ECMA standard in 1997 and is now one the three main languages all web developers must learn: HTML5 is used to define the content of web pages, CSS3 is used to specify the layout and style of web pages, and JavaScript is used program the behavior of web pages.

    The course begins by introducing JavaScript variables, and programming concepts such as declaring variables using the var key word and naming JavaScript variables using identifiers. You will learn about HTML events such as onclick and how JavaScript methods can be used to work with events. You will learn about the different types of conditional statements, their correct syntax and examples of their use. You will learn about JavaScript functions which are blocks of code designed to perform a particular task, and how to write the correct syntax for functions.

    You will learn about the different types of JavaScript loops (for, for/in, while and do/while loops) and their correct syntax. You will learn about JavaScript arrays which are objects used to store multiple values in a single variable. You will also learn about the different types of 'falsy' values and 'truthy' values. Finally, you will learn about the main types of errors in JavaScript code and how to minimize these errors.

    This course will be of great interest to all learners who would like to learn about JavaScript coding techniques to enhance both the interactivity and functionality of their web pages.

  5. JavaScript - Working with the Document Object Model and jQuery Plugins

    The free online course JavaScript - Working with the Document Object Model and jQuery Plugins introduces you to the concept of the Document Object Model and how you can add greater functionality to your web pages using jQuery plugins. When a web page is loaded, the browser creates a Document Object Model (DOM) of the page.

    The HTML DOM model is constructed as a tree of objects and JavaScript can interact with elements in the DOM to add much greater functionality and interactivity to web pages. For example, you will learn how JavaScript can change all the HTML elements in the page, change all the HTML attributes in the page, change all the CSS styles in the page, remove existing HTML elements and attributes, add new HTML elements and attributes, react to all existing HTML events in the page and create new HTML events in the page.

    You will also learn about jQuery which is the most popular JavaScript library in use today. You will learn how jQuery's syntax is designed to make it easier to navigate a document, select DOM elements, create animations, handle events, and develop Ajax applications. You will learn about jQuery plug-ins which are available on the Web and cover a range of functions such as drag and drop, dynamic lists, events and many others. You will learn how to link your web pages to a jQuery plugin to add even more functionality to your web pages.

    This free course will be of great interest to all web developers who would like to learn more about using JavaScript to work with the DOM and jQuery plugins to enhance the functionality and interactivity of web pages.
