- [Voiceover] Hello, my name is Ray Villalobos. Welcome to Creating and Adaptive Web Site for Multiple Screens. In this course, we'll be designing a single website, which will adapt to display differently on different types of devices: desktops, handhelds, and tablets. We'll start by designing and customizing a series of interactive webpages that display on a desktop. We'll take a look at how to load pages and other content dynamically using jQuery and AJAX. Next, we'll look at how to customize the site's layout for handheld devices like iPhone and Android.

We'll also cover how to deal with problems and inconsistencies that pop up when displaying the site on different devices. Finally, we'll make coding and design adjustments to make the pages work well on tablet devices. Now, let's get started with Creating an Adaptive Web Site for Multiple Screens.
