The company is offering DVD for download for readers of the eBook. Digital Classroom is trying to ensure that the video tutorials relate directly to the concepts covered in the HTML5 Digital Classroom. The DVD has relevant content from the books expert authors from AGI Training.

The HTML5 Digital Classroom covers topics like essential capabilities of HTML5, how to code cutting-edge Web pages and Web applications using new HTML5 tags, how to create HTML5 Web forms, and how to add multimedia content, the company said in a statement.

The company claims that besides showing how to use the Canvas element to create graphics and how to combine styling and animation technologies of CSS3, the video tutorials of HTML5 Digital Classroom makes an excellent HTML5 textbook for schools teaching HTML5.

Digital Classroom is making availability of the authors of the HTML5 Digital Classroom for teaching HTML5 classes. There will also be live online HTML5 classes and in-person HTML5 classes at AGI’s classroom locations.

The main advantage is that the authors also are available for workshops and private HTML5 classes for groups, schools, and corporations. These HTML5 classes help Web designers and Web developers gain new HTML5 skills to take advantage of new HTML5 tags and CSS3 capabilities, the company said.
