In addition my wife works 12 hour night shifts as an RN I cannot ensure your safety if you wake her after a particularly bad night. Please use the email listed below) Email Address: mm with the phrase WEBDEV in the subject line. This allows me to place your email into folders automatically and helps with the SPAM problem. Mail sent with no subject is automatically deleted. (This is your preferred contact method) Course Meets: Online (49A) and On Campus (00A) Friday 9:00 — 11:30 AM (see notes below) Course Purpose/Objectives: As a student in this course, you will learn the essential concepts of HTML, XHTM, and DHTML. You will begin with developing a basic Web page and move on to developing a basic Web site. You will also cover working with page design, working with tables, and working with frames. Next, you will cover creating Web page forms, working with cascading style sheets, and using multimedia on the Web. You will also learn about XHTML and working with JavaScript. You will then move into topics such as working with objects, working with special effects and working with windows and frames. Prerequisite: No prerequisites are necessary except a willingness to learn! Text/Materials: M: Carey, New Perspectives on HTML, XHTML, and DHTML, Comprehensive Course Technology, 2006. ISBN 0-619—26748~8 CL McLeod, Cool School Interactus HTML and XHTML Interactive Movie Tutorials ISBN 1-4188—3938—8 System Reguirements: A text editor (Microsoft Notepad as an example), and a Web browser that supports the current standards for HTML and either the W3C or Internet Explorer Document Object Model. Browsers meeting these requirements include the 6.0 (and higher) versions of Internet Explorer, Netscape, and Opera, and the 1.0 (and higher) versions of Safari for Macintosh and F irefox. I do not recommend use of a Netscape 4 level browser or Internet Explorer 5.2 for the Macintosh, as both browsers have compatibility issues with current standards. Users who wish to understand how to write code for Netscape 4 level browsers can review the material in Appendix J. You will need to install QuickTime (available on the CD) on your computer to utilize the CD and View the movies. In addition, we will explore some alternatives to a simple text editor. Software will all be provided for download or a link to a location to download. Expectations & Instructional Approach: This course is a biended combination of students. Some students are enrolled oniine, and others are enroiled for the on campus section. Because we want to give all students maximum flexibility, there are no points for attendance. There are however weekly assignments including reading, quizzes, and other assignments. I do expect you to read and study the assignments located on Blackboard inciuding additional hints/tips. See below for more information on this being a “blended” classroom. This is a substantial and rigorous course; however those who keep up with assignments, study, and ask questions where appropriate will do well. All Material will be submitted through Blackboard or put on your student web site when directed. We will be using several methods to submit material into the Blackboard; however no written assignments will be accepted from email. 1" his is for your protection as my spam filters will often strip out attachments, and you really do want me to grade your assignments. Really. Please do the assignments and submit via Blackboard. Your grade will thank you. This is aiso the reason for putting WEBDEV in the subject line to correctly route your email. Everyone in the class will get space on a publicly viewable web server. As such, I do reserve the right to remove any material found offensive or objectionable. You will also be on the honor system. Everyone will be using the same useruame and password. This means your fellow student’s websites are accessible to you. Please respect your feilow classmates and only look, don’t touch! 1 do this deliberately so that we can exchange ideas and work collectively at times. Many resources for additional information will be posted on Blackboard. One important area for this class will be the discussion boards. In addition to graded questions and answers, there will be the Teachers Corner, where you are encouraged to ask any questions that are not confidential in nature. If you have a question, most likely Others have the same or similar question. Do not use this to copy solutions or answers, as this will not be tolerated. This resource, as is everything in this course, designed for both the on campus and online students. You are also welcome to help assist your feilow students on the Instructors Corner if you know the answer before I am able to respond. I advise you to visit and participate in this area as often as possible. The discussion boards will also be used to host graded questions weekly. in addition to responding to the original post, you will also need to make a thoughtful response to a fellow classmate. These requirements may change depending on the topic, so make sure you read the instructions carefully. “I agree“, “Good Post”, “Way to go”, are not substantial and will not score any points. There will be additional material related to the requirements posted in Blackboard. There will be 2 due dates for discussion board questions, Friday of the week for an initial response and Tuesday for your responses to classmates. This class wiil end each academic week on Tuesday at 10:09 PM CST. All chapter quizzes (or tutorials as this book calls them) will be due at that time with no exception. Certain assignments wiil have other deadlines, and these wiii be posted to Blackboard as an announcement. Please make sure you check your email and Blackboard on a daily basis. One piece of advice is to start early in the week on the assignments and readings. This gives you more time to get a response to a question or use additionai resources. There is also an advantage to posting discussion board responses early as this gives others the chance to feed upon your wisdom and insight. Please do not wait until 9:30 pm on Tuesday to begin your studying for this course! Even though we do not all physically meet for class, it might be helpful to set up times during the week devoted to working on this course. ALL students regardless of whether they are enrolled online or on campus are welcome to attend the Friday class sessions. These will not be conventional “chalk and taik“ lecture classes, but wili be student driven including question and answer sessions, hands on help sessions in the iab, working on projects, discussion relating to relevant topics (and sometimes not so reievant), and other “hands on” types of activities. We are striving to give students the most flexibility with these classes. As these are held on Friday, consider it casual dress and do not expect me to be in a tie! This class may sound tough, seems to cover a lot of material, and wiil introduce new concepts. If you are having a panic attack, take a deep breath. Relax. You WILL make it through the class if you stay on top of the material, use your resources(such as the Video CD), ask questions (remember the discussion board called Instructors Corner), and take learning new ideas as a challenge not a hindrance! Note the large size of this text. It is to make sure you read this. There are classes you can take, read the book, take the quiz, and succeed. This class is not like that. You must be willing to take the time to practice these concepts and work with developing your web skills. Wouid you want to fly with a pilot who only read the textbook, or one who worked in the simulator and with other pilots? Because you are all adults, I wili assume that you are willing to put forth that effort. Some assignments will be done for credit, others will be recommended to be done as a good practice. Because I want to show you sample code of how I and others have solved these problems, the no late assignment policy will be rigorously applied to this class.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
