15 Projects-based Tutorials to Practice HTML and CSS Skills


You can create real world projects using project-based HTML and CSS tutorials. All you have to do is choose one of the 15 projects and follow the tutorial to created it.

There are a lot of courses that teach HTML and CSS online. However most of them usually teach based on the features of the languages.

I have nothing against that teaching method. It works. But not for everyone.

If you learn better by buiding products, you need a project based tutorial.

I created this list of tutorials to help you along the journey as you learn by creating real world projects.

1. Dash Assembly (Website)

Dash Assembly course teaches you HTML and CSS skills by creating 3 projects. The course takes you from knowing nothing to:

  • Building a personal website
  • Building a responsive tumblr theme
  • Creating a small business website.
  • creating a robot on the webpage using CSS
  • Creating a Madlib game


The last project, creating a Madlib game, will introduce you to the world of Javascript. This quiz project that you will be making can be played on the browser.

I once taught a class of 8-12 year old on making websites based on content from this course and they really enjoyed it. They particularly loved Making the robot using CSS project.
