Hemos visto mucho sobre texto en este curso, pero la web sería realmente aburrida solo con eso. Empezemos a aprender como hacer que la web se sienta viva, con mucho más contenido interesante! Este módulo enseña como incluir multimedia a tus paginas web, incluyendo como añadir imágenes de diferentes maneras, y como insertar un video, audio, e incluso otras páginas enteras.


Antes de empezar, deberías tener un buen conocimiento de las bases de HTML, enseñadas en Introduction to HTML. Si no has estado trabajando en este módulo (o alguno similar), hazlo y luego vuelve!

Nota: Si estas trabajando en un ordenador/tablet/u otro aparato donde no puedas crear tus propios archivos, puedes probar (la mayoría) los ejemplos de codigo en programas online de codificado como JSBin o Thimble.


Este módulo tiene los siguientes temas, los cuales te enseñaran todo lo fundamental sobre introducir multmedia en paginas web.

Imágenes en HTML
There are other types of multimedia to consider, but it is logical to start with the humble <img> element, used to embed a simple image in a webpage. In this article we'll look at how to use it in depth, including basics, annotating it with captions using <figure>, and how it relates to CSS background images.
Video and audio content
Next, we'll look at how to use the HTML5 <video> and <audio> elements to embed video and audio on our pages, including basics, providing access to different file formats to different browsers, adding captions and subtitles, and how to add fallbacks for older browsers.
From <object> to <iframe> — other embedding technologies
At this point we'd like to take somewhat of a sideways step, looking at a couple of elements that allow you to embed a wide variety of content types into your webpages: the <iframe><embed> and <object> elements. <iframe>s are for embedding other web pages, and the other two allow you to embed PDFs, SVG, and even Flash — a technology that is on the way out, but which you'll still see semi-regularly.
Adding vector graphics to the Web
Vector graphics can be very useful in certain situations. Unlike regular formats like PNG/JPG, they don't distort/pixellate when zoomed in — they can remain smooth when scaled. This article introduces you to what vector graphics are, and how to include the popular SVG format in web pages.
Responsive images
With so many differerent device types now able to browse the Web — from mobile phones to desktop computers — an essential concept to master in the modern web world is responsive design. This refers to the creation of webpages that can automatically change their features to suit different screen sizes, resolutions, etc. This will be looked at in much more detail in a CSS module later on, but for now we'll look at the tools HTML has available to create responsive images, including the <picture> element.


The following assessments will test your understanding of the HTML basics covered in the guides above.

Mozilla splash page
In this assessment, we'll test your knowledge of some of the techniques discussed in this module's articles, getting you to add some images and video to a funky splash page all about Mozilla!

Image maps provide a mechanism to make different parts of an image link to different places (think of a map, linking through to further information about each different country you click on.) This technique can sometimes be useful.
