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.

There is a lot of support and you should definitely use it if you have questions or encounter a problem. We are hear to help you succeed! Please take advantage of that.
To repeat: If you need help with something, now would be the time to ask your questions!
Uploading to the Web: We got to this this week - earlier than usual. So here are notes on using cisweb.
In my notes I talk about Things have changed and you should now use and the port number should be 220.
You can also check the notes on the Smartboard and the accompanying audio as well as the notes below.
Again: To load things up on the Internet, we use WINSCP. Please read the WINSCP and cisweb information: (note that in my examples I use as the host and 22 as the port, we are now using as the host and 220 as the port.
Here is information about using cisweb and WINSCP at BCC
Talks more specifically about portfolio We will be looking at making a portfolio later in the semester.
If you want to download WINSCP at home, you can find it at this address.
Remember the host is and the port is 220.
The goal this week is to look at uploading to the server, Links and start Tables. The information about Links and tables is under HTML5/HTML5 sample code.

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.
Assignments to turn in:

Week #1
Week of September 2nd
Because classes start on Tuesday, September 3rd your first class will be on Monday, September 9th. 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.
