For your Responsive Website Development and Design Specialization Capstone Project, you will create a complete, responsive, multi-user, data-driven website which aims to solve a particular problem. We encourage you to create a website addressing a problem that you are interested in! However, if you don’t have an idea of your own, we have several that we will suggest in the course.
In the capstone project, you will:
1. Develop a complete website using the full range of skills learned during the specialisation
2. Work through a structured process from idea generation to product delivery
3. Document and receive feedback on the development of your project from an idea to a fully functional piece of software in a series of structured assignments including peer interactions
Participation in or completion of this online course will not confer academic credit for University of London programmes.
