HTML & Web Page Class


I would like to give you a comment by Pat Asher. This was taken from the web with her permission: "Perhaps the most important thing I have learned is that it is NOT really a foreign language. It's just basic English with a few sneaky little "tags" thrown in. Think of it as a page in your word processor-- and instead of clicking a button to make BOLD text, you add a "tag" in HTML. Not nearly so scary when you think of it that way. Hang in there. You too, can be a webmaster......Pat Asher"
The class will last for 6 weeks, with a new lesson each week. The lesson for the week will be put up by Monday morning and you will have until Sunday night to do the exercises. There will be certain chapters assigned that you may read and exercises to be completed in Html. You will see in Class I a listing called "disscusion". When a student emails with a question or problem, it will be posted here along with the answer. The purpose is to let all students benefit from the question and answers. I am also adding a discussion list the this page. It will be at the end of this page, so look there for questions and answers. I will be available at certain times each day to give you any help needed but you may send emails at any time and I will check my mail as often as possible. There is a chart below of the times I expect to be at home. The "maybe" in the chart below means I probably will be home but I may have things come up that have to be done outside the home. Do not worry about getting behind in the class, you will be given time to catch up. My email address is: My phone number: 859-9481
I would like you to download now these three programs for future use in our lessons. WINZIP, WS_FTPLE, and 1st PAGE is a totally free program that we will use a little later but the first week we will use notepad.
To download a program, go to the download page where the program is located on the internet. Click on the word download and follow directions. Make a folder for your program on your desktop and drag the downloaded icon into it. Open the folder and double click on the icon. It will open winzip. Tell it to use the folder you just made and click on extract. Then it will unzip the program into your folder. When it is finished, open your folder and double click on the icon. When you look in your folder, your program should be there.
