JAIMEZ-GONZALEZ, Carlos R.. Web portal with HTML and CSS digital learning resources. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.15, pp.833-860. ISSN 2007-7467.

This article focuses on a web portal with a variety of online resources for learning hypertext markup language (HTML) and cascading style sheets (CSS). This content is not only useful for undergraduate students of static web design, but also for individuals looking for an introduction to basic web development using HTML and CSS.

The article discusses the web portal’s layout and site sections, as well as the teaching objectives of each section. Concrete examples are included of each type of online resource that was developed. An applied practical evaluation is also included to demonstrate what students are capable of doing with the help of this online content. According to the results of the practical evaluation, students showed strong skill development; 75% of the students were able to build more than 80% of the web site requested in the evaluation.

To evaluate the web portal, an assessment tool was created to rate the following aspects: interface design, usefulness, and educational characteristics. Students of static web development at the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Unidad Cuajimalpa, took part in the evaluation. More than 90% of the students who responded to the evaluation reported that the web portal’s educational resources had enhanced their comprehension and learning, and had reinforced the themes covered in their studies of static web development, thereby verifying that the web portal had fulfilled its objective.

Keywords : Learning HTML; CSS; Web Portal; Online Learning Resources; Static Web Development.
