In fact, over the past several years, technology has improved so much that there is now software that can be used to help create and build websites ... even if you are not a computer programmer and don't know any coding language. Dreamweaver is a popular web authoring software and you can learn it in this online class: Introduction to Dreamweaver CS5.
Dreamweaver is the industry-leading web authoring and editing software that provides both visual and code-level capabilities for creating standards-based websites and designs for the desktop, smartphones, tablets, and other devices.

Even with easy to use web-authoring software, you will probably want to pick up some basic html coding language knowledge so that you can get the most from your software and save yourself a little time and headache. You can take a highly recommended class called
