The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) which is the main international standards organization for the Web has recently joined the edX platform. W3C has been instrumental in developing and hosting open-source tools that are used every day by millions of Web developers.


The first course of W3C on edX, HTML5 Part 1, taught by University Côte d’Azur professor Michael Buffa, is 6 weeks long starting June 1st and is now open for enrollment. This HTML5 MOOC course will give students an opportunity to learn the new features introduced, directly from the experts who helped create HTML5.It covers how to:

  • Learn the new simplified HTML5 tags, and how to use micro data
  • Play with the audio and video tags, draw and animate fun Web graphics.
  • Practice coding techniques thanks to multiple interactive examples and many more.

HTML5 which is the standard language of the Web was developed by W3C and will continue to be the essential technology for organizations delivering applications across multiple platforms.

As such, HTML5 is now supported on mobile phones, connected objects, game consoles, automobile dashboards, and devices that haven’t even been considered yet. Write once and deploy anywhere! Additionally this tutorial on HTML also teaches you everything about the basics.
