At present, I am teaching HTML at church to a group of adults, for the very first time ever. As I go I am writing easy-to-understand lessons using Microsoft Word documents, complete with pictures of what to click on, how things should look, etc. If you want to follow along, download each lesson, and print it out if you find it easier to read that way. Follow the directions exactly, keeping all your work in a single folder while you do the course.

At the end of each section is a small quiz. Come back online to check your answers. Things may be added later.

  • IBM website
  • Living Christianity
  • USPS - United States Postal Office
  • Debbie's CWOW homepage
