    Closely linked with HTML5, W3C's SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) standard is quickly becoming a key, non-proprietary technology that every Web developer needs to master in the future, especially when creating "rich", interactive sites. A case in point: SVG will be available in Internet Explorer 9. That means that soon all major browsers will include native support for this exciting technology.

    Beginning on Monday 10th January, this four week course taught by W3C experts will introduce you to SVG. You will learn:

    • How do you create great-looking graphics using SVG?
    • How do you transform graphics, add borders, gradients and more?
    • What can you do with SVG better than any other technology?

    An optional further 2 weeks cover animation and user interaction.

    The course is for you if:

    • you are familiar with Web site design and creation;
    • you have at least basic familiarity with editing HTML and/or XML source code;
    • you are familiar with terms like "bitmap", "dithering", "anti-aliasing", ""RGB", "dots per inch", and "pixels" (or can find out them before the course starts);
    • you want to be able to include great-looking dynamic graphics in your designs.

    SVG is not an alternative to things like JPEG, GIF or PNG. Nor is it an alternative to CSS. It's SVG. It's different, it's exciting - it's time you knew about it! Full details of the course are available.

    The course will be taught by Professor of Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania. Professor Dailey has written extensively about the subject for more than 6 years, and is continuing work on the SVG Primer.

    The full price of the course is €165

The W3C offers a number of online training courses through this portal.

All courses follow a similar format: weekly modules include 'lectures' (i.e. instructive texts), usually with links to further resources, as well as some sort of activity. This might be a quiz or a Tutor Marked Assignment. A discussion forum allows participants to discuss the course with each other and with the instructors.

Instructors are always either some of those involved directly with the creation of the relevant W3C standard or others who have a close association.

Participants can expect to spend 2 - 3 hours per week on the course when running.
