CATALOG DESCRIPTION

(1999-2000 TCC Catalog)
This course is intended to provide students with an overview of the tools available to design and develop an effective personal or corporate presence on the World Wide Web. This will be accomplished through the use of hands-on projects and exercises. Lecture and laboratory 1 hour.

(Previous Description)
This course will serve as a basic introduction to hypertext markup language (HTML).  Students will learn how to locate, download, and install web page editors; how to construct personal, resume, and/or small business web pages; and how to locate IPPs/ISPs and place and publicize their pages on the World Wide Web.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS

Because this is a skills-development course, attendance is crucial.  Some moderately light reading is required.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

The purpose of this course is to help students learn how to construct web pages.  Acquisition of HTML editors and graphics libraries, and sites for storing web pages will also be covered.

TEACHING METHODS

This class will be taught using a workshop approach.  This means that guided exercises will be conducted in class, with assistance from the professor.  Some class time will also be available for independent exploration by the student.  Because of the size of the class and the nature of the guided exercises, however, it is important that the student avoid independent exploration during class unless instructed to do so.

EVALUATION TECHNIQUES

Grades for this course will be determined by attendance.

GRADING SYSTEM

Your final grade will be determined using the following criteria:
Satisfactory = 75 - 100% attendance.
Unsatisfactory = less than 75% attendance.

ATTENDANCE POLICY

School policy requires your attendance in class and use of common-sense should suggest that it is to your advantage to attend class.  I will not, however, penalize you for missing a single class.  You are responsible for any information missed due to an absence.  It is your responsibility to find out what you missed and to get any assignments for the next class.  You can do this by checking the class web page.

LATE ASSIGNMENTS AND MAKE-UP TEST POLICY

There are no exams, but there are several required assignments that I use to check attendance.  Expect that you will need to email me at the class email address shown above every class night.

CLASSROOM ETHICS AND BEHAVIOR

Students are required to abide by the Acceptable Use Policy, the Computing Resource Guidelines, any other regulations set by TCC, and the conventions for Internet use.

READING ASSIGNMENTS

No specific assignments, but scan the text for material relevant to your needs.
