EDUC 370 - Instructional Technology: Agenda for February 1, 2007

FTP

A web page is just a local document until it is published. I have a place for you to place things on my web server. The following tutorial will help you post your web page on the Internet. I will distribute the ftp login information in class.

Resources

HTML Basics

For a perspective and a chance to practice some more use Webmonkey, a site full of web authoring tutorials. Note that these pages are constructed to allow you to print them out if you wish. The directions are a bit chatty, but give you a quick introduction to the subject.

First, read through the following to get a general understanding of HTML

Then, use the Webmonkey Teaching Tool to learn the following skills and tags:

In each case, be sure to practice the tag by completing the "try it" link at the end of the article if one is present.

Web Graphics

The HTML

You will always use "inline" graphics. They are placed using the <img src="url"> tag. The URL can be absolute or relative, but 99% of the time you will use relative (linking to another person's links is both bad form and risky, as who knows with they will move them?).

Exercisegarlic

  1. Download this file - sample.gif
  2. Place it in the same foler as last week's index.html
  3. Create a link on your index.html by typing <img src="sample.gif">
  4. Upload the new version of index.html and the sample.gif file
  5. View in browser

Graphics Work

I'd like you to take a fair amount of time and work on graphics. There are a number of links available to help you at any level. Please view the table on the right for places to help your graphics work.

I strongly suggest going through Graphics 101.
