In this unit, you will create web sites that provide an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices. The basics of developing web pages will first be discussed, along with the theory and practice to support this development. Then, using responsive design, you will develop solutions that adapt the layout of the viewing environment by using fluid grids, proportional images and layout rules. A mobile-first approach is taken, where you will learn problem solving and programming skills to provide progressive enhancement, producing innovative and engaging digital content for mobile devices and for desktop systems.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Each 6-credit Postgraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

Australian Computer Society (ACS) recognises the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA). SFIA is in use in over 100 countries
and provides a widely used and consistent definition of ICT skills. SFIA is increasingly being used when developing job descriptions and
ACS members can use the tool MySFIA to build a skills profile at https://www.acs.org.au/professionalrecognition/mysfia-b2c.html
This unit contributes to the following workplace skills as defined by SFIA. The SFIA code is included:
(1) User experience analysis (UNAN)
(2) User experience evaluation (USEV)
(3) Information content publishing (ICPM)
(4) Program ming/software development (PROG)
(5) Testing (TEST)
