Welcome

(soft jingle) - [Voiceover] Hi there, and welcome to Muse Essential Training. My name is Justin Seeley, and I'm a staff author here at Lynda.com. If you're a designer interested in creating websites, but not sure where to start, you've come to the right place. Adobe Muse is an application that lets you create fully functioning websites without ever writing a single line of code. In this course, I'll walk you through everything Muse has to offer. We'll start off by planning our website, and creating a site map using the planning environment inside of Adobe Muse.

From there, you and I will work together to create webpages that incorporate dynamic menus, showcase images using slideshows, contain functioning contact forms, and a whole lot more. Once we're all finished designing the desktop version of our site, I'll walk you through the basics of creating tablet and mobile versions of your website, as well. And then, when it's all said and done, I'll show you just how easy it is to get your site out of Muse and onto the web. I'm really excited to show you how you can use these tools to begin your web design education.

We've got quite a bit to cover, though. So if you're ready, let's jump right in and begin Muse Essential Training.
