Introduction to Dreamweaver CS6 Online Class

Introduction to Dreamweaver CS6 Online Class

Introduction to Dreamweaver CS6You’ve taken your first steps into Web design, and your fingers are beginning to cramp from all that typing—but don’t panic! Developing your coding skills has not been in vain! You’re ready for Dreamweaver—Adobe’s preeminent Web development application—which has been designed from the ground up to make developing websites easier.

You’ll begin by touring the Dreamweaver workspace and configuring it for your specific site-management needs. You’ll learn how to use Dreamweaver’s intuitive tool set to structure text, and investigate the myriad formatting options CSS provides. Along the way, you’ll work with images, build navigation elements, discuss effective layout methods, learn where and when to use tables, and examine successful site planning strategies. By the end of the course, you’ll have successfully built a website and know how to use Dreamweaver’s built-in FTP tools to upload to the server of your choice.

Students who have enrolled in this class agree that it’s a great one. There’s what a few have said:

This was my first time taking an online course. I found it to be concise and easy to follow while giving me a great overview of Dreamweaver while giving me all the tools I needed in order to start making a website. In other words, it has given me a great foundation.

This course was very helpful for me. I am an Oracle developer/analyst who is transitioning into the web design/development/social media world. This course has given me a great foundation upon which to build. I will definitely be taking other courses from KSU continuing education department. Thanks for the knowledge.

Great class, Great Instructor! This is not my first class with Robert Fuller and won’t be my last. I have taken many class’s through ed2go but I always have learned the most with him as my instructor, not slighting the others because I know they are good but something about his style I connect with. I thoroughly enjoyed this class and learned enough to be dangerous. Looking forward to more classes.

Sounds like a good class, doesn’t it?

Imagine how excited you’ll be to have the skills you need to create your Website with Dreamweaver!

Converting Text to Columns in Excel

Today, I taught myself how to separate text in an Excel column into two columns with the Text To Columns function. This can be a huge time-saver when you have a lot of data to convert.

I have a spreadsheet with student info…name, email address, etc. The first and last names were in one column separated with a comma. Well, I needed the names in separate columns, and discovered the Text to Columns function. Now, I would like to share it with you.

It’s a good idea to create empty columns for your converted data to the right of the column holding the text you’d like to convert or split (first and last names for me). Then select the column you’d like to split and click Text to Columns on the Data tab on the Ribbon.

Text to Columns command on the Data tab in Excel

Text to Columns command on the Data tab in Excel

When you click the Text to Columns command, the Convert Text to Column Wizard dialog box appears with a two choices…Delimited or Fixed width. Use Delimited if the text in the column is separated with a comma, tab, semicolon, or a space; and choose Fixed if the text is aligned in columns with spaces between each field.

In the next step of the Wizard, you’ll choose the column format, like Text or General; and the destination column for your output. If you don’t choose a destination, the converted text will replace the original text in the column you selected earlier and flow into the column or columns to the right when you click Finish. It’s so easy and it works with Microsoft Excel 2007 or 2010 (Windows) and Excel 2011 (Mac). So cool!

I need to use this function two times a year; so if I forget it, I’ll refer to this blog post to refresh my memory. And,you can do the same.

I hope you found this Excel tip helpful. Post a comment if you have an Excel question for me!
