W3C is delighted to announce its latest online training course:
Introduction to SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics).

The course ran successfully in October and so we're excited about 
running it again in the new year with a slightly different structure 
following the feedback received. Less intense than the first run, the 
new course makes the more advanced topics around animation and 
user-interaction an optional extension to the main curriculum. Once 
again it will be lead by Professor David Dailey of Slippery Rock 
University, Pennsylvania, who is writing the W3C Primer on the topic.

During the core 4 weeks you will:

   - create SVG documents;
   - learn how to use basic elements to create effective graphics quickly
     and easily;
   - add border effects, linear and radial gradients;
   - re-use components;
   - rescale, rotate and translate images.

Optionally, you can take the final two weeks in which you will learn how to:

   - add animation using SMIL;
   - use scripting to transform and manipulate images;
   - make your graphics interactive and responsive to user input.

Interest in SVG has grown dramatically in recent months following 
Microsoft's announcement that IE 9 will join all other major browsers in 
supporting the format. The only pre-requisite for the course is that you 
have some familiarity with HTML/XML and the ability to edit source code 
directly. The optional weeks (5 & 6) will be of most benefit to those 
with some background in scripting.

Participants will have access to lectures and assignments guided by W3C 
experts on this topic. You will also be able to discuss and share
experiences with your peers who are faced with the same challenges of 
Web design.

Full details: the content, the timing, who it's for and more, is
available at http://kwz.me/aH. Registration is now open and the full
price of the course is 165 but *Early bird* registration is available
until Thursday 23rd December at just 125.

If you've looked through the course description and have further
questions, do get in touch.

Hope you can join us!
