Our courses are hosted on the RapidWeaver Academy Learning Management System (LMS). These courses are full featured and include step-by-step video tutorials along with meaningful activities and challenges.
Learn about web design
In the courses and projects we cover how to build modern, responsive web sites that are firmly focussed on being lightweight, well-optimised and fit for the modern web.
Learn about RapidWeaver and Stacks
Our courses also cover the use (and best practices) of using RapidWeaver and the Stacks plugin.
Learn about graphic design
Our projects and courses also make use of different graphics (e.g. images and SVG icons etc) and, where required, we look at the creation and manipulation of these to suit our projects and web pages.
...and much more!
The RapidWeaver Academy is run by Shaking the Habitual and offers a catalogue of projects and courses that are intended to be used as tools to help you get the most out of RapidWeaver and Stacks. The finished projects and course projects can of course be used as starting points for your own (or your client's) web pages too!
The only requirements are that you have RapidWeaver and the Stacks plugin. If there are additional requirements then these will be stated in the details section of the course or project. We try to use freely available stacks wherever possible.
We use Source 'micro' framework as the base for all of our courses and projects. The core set of Source stacks are completely free and this makes it an ideal starting point for our courses. To get the most out of the courses though the (very cheap) add-on pack is recommended.
Even if Source is not your framework of choice, you would still get a lot out of these courses in terms of design, workflow and concepts. These can all be applied to many of the other frameworks available.
Yes - please do! We aim to please and so if there are particular areas / design concepts / stacks that you would like to see covered in our courses then please get in touch and let us know.
