We all learn differently. Would anyone like to learn and also learn by teaching CSS?

Necessity being the mother of invention means I have to learn CSS.
I was thinking about my learning pattern. I seem to grasp content by having some sort of over-view of the topics, objectives and examples by doing. Others can learn simply by immersion. Teaching is the most thorough way of learning.

If I was to choose classic topics in CSS and list them. Would anyone be interested in selecting a topic, researching it and then teaching it to those who are interested. Off the top of my head a lead time of say three weeks?

We could use a forum; Boomers yolasite for the examples and instruction; any tutorial videos or anything that you felt would help you get points across and impress the concepts and practice. You really could structure this anyway you feel that you learn or teach best.

The teacher of the topic could be moderator/curator for their topic and anyone who accepted the position(?)could be the rouse-about or gopher for materials as directed, web-space, forum setup, IM setup anything.

I really like this idea Peter. I would be a willing student, not teacher though! I'm just not good at this stuff at all! I really hope people do jump on-board with this idea and share with us their knowledge of CSS.

A bit like the blind leading the blind Peter :-)

I would be very happy to select a topic from your list, do research and
report back with my fingings. Sounds like a good Idea.

And what's this nonsence about being the student Littleus ?
I've seen you helping out many with CSS.

Wax on....wax off ......

LU,
You are so good at leading people to feel comfortable using CSS. There really are a lot of examples of this. I can understand you doing it empirically. I think that your comfort with directing this would be a natural in for understanding it.

Of course it's your call and I don't want to push, I simply want to say that I think you do have the ability. I think this is also true for others who use it.

Boomer,

if these topics are too dry you can combine them with interesting examples of course. I don't think that we have to stick at such a model. Simply a foundations list.

Thanks for considering it Boomer. I'm sure you would have a very grateful class on any topic that you may choose.

I'm flattered that you both think I have the know-how regarding CSS. Truth be told though, I'm very good at manipulating CSS but not creating them. Once these tutorials come into play, I'm sure that I'll have a much better handle on how to create CSS and understand how it actually works. Then, I'll be ready to graduate! =)

This is the W3C initial list of topics.

I think a good starting point. There are further topics but this is the foundation.

CSS Topics List

1. What is CSS?
2. CSS Syntax
3. CSS How To use CSS
3.(a) How to Insert a Style Sheet
4. CSS Background
5. CSS Text
6. CSS Font
7. CSS Border
8. CSS Outlines
9. CSS Margin
10. CSS Padding
11. CSS List
12. CSS Table

If anyone wants to include self diagnostic or proficiency testing by creating a quiz on any of the topics, I highly recommend http://proprofs.com Easy to embed or link the created quizz to a site.

Yeh I would be interested in this perhaps, I'm trying to learn css outside of Yola but mainly find myself copying and pasting, but at least it makes me comfortable with it!
