Weekly Schedule

Remember RE-SUBMIT. If you get back a homework with errors and without a grade it means it has not been graded - you need to fix and resubmit to get a grade. Remember, all assignments including inclass assignments must be done by everyone - that includes online students and students who missed the class..

Remember that the Smartboard notes I take in class and the audio I record are avalable under Smartboard notes and Audio notes under HTML5.

Week Information
Schedule Session Assignments due in the week after the assignment is given unless otherwise stated.
Note that the audio and Smartboard presentations for each class are posted within a couple of days.
I may add some things during the week, so double check the schedule each week!
Inclass exercises are still assignments and must be done by everyone if they appear under assignments.
Please keep copies of all work you submit until you receive your final grade at the end of the semester. Remember that I record all my classes and capture notes on the Smartboard. These are available to you under Audio and Smartboard.

Exercise: First: I want you to work on circle, rectangle and polygon. I want you to download an image - you can use something from my site or find something yourself. Once you have downloaded and sized it to the size you want to work with, I want you to map the image. The mapping should send control to an area within your page so we can keep this local. I want a minimum of three different mappings.
Second: I want you to experiment with frames.Try a nested frame with one row on the top and one row on the bottom and the bottom one divided into 3 columns.
Exercise we will start in class if we have time I want you to also add an image to the page and center it.

Please browse my website and become familiar with what is there.
Since we will be looking at both HTML5 and a little bit at XHTML, I am giving you a basic example of of both styles:
Code for a basic example of HTML5 Note that a lot of pages are now including the language in the html tag. So they would write <html lang="en">
Code for a basic example of XHTML
I want you to look at HTML5 sample code and then go to the examples under HTML5 - intro. Because I do the Smartboard, I have stopped doing the presentations and focused on the Smartboard explanations.
We will also look at validation in HTML5. The validator is located at W3. If you validate by File Upload and browse to find your file and then click on check, the validator will give you feedback.

Week #1
Week of January 21st
Because classes start on Tuesday, January 22nd your first class will be on Monday, January 28th. There is no required book for this course, but you might find it helpful to look up some resources and tutorials on HTML5 and CSS as well as JavaScript (later in the course) because we will start to look at using HTML in its various versions when we start the course. Please do not change any of the passwords we have given you. I need to be able to get to your site as does the IT staff if there is a problem.
