There is no class meeting on Thursday, February 14.

This course is a hybrid class. In addition to the online course we’ll meet in the classroom for 3 meetings during the 8-week course. The location of the 3 classroom meetings will be AET 105. Below are the following dates. You must be present at all 3 classroom meetings.

Thursday, February 28 at 2:00pm – 5:05pm
Thursday, March 21 at 2:00pm – 5:05pm
Thursday, April 4 at 2:00pm – 5:05pm

For those of you who have already introduced yourself— thank you! It was great hearing a little about all of you.

If you haven’t introduced yourself yet, please do so in the Discussion section of the course site. It’s the way I take attendance for the first week of class.

Please start the course by reading the Class 01A & 01B notes (get to it by using the right-hand side “class notes” navigation) and complete the Assignment 01 for next week.

Friendly Reminders
  • Please be sure that you get the Fourth edition of “Learning Web Design: A Beginner’s Guide to HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Web Graphics” for this class.
  • Please remember to post the URL (web address) of your Tumblr blog to the comments sections located at the bottom of the page on the Week 01 class notes.
  • Most of you have not taken the Class Goals survey. The survey is really helpful so I have a better idea of your existing skills and goals for the class. There is a link to the Class Goals surgery under “Exercise”  in the Week 01 class notes.
  • We are using Photoshop CS5 or CS6 and Dreamweaver CS5 or CS6 in this class.  If you need to purchase software for this class, I have several online resources for software at a student discount on the FAQ page of this site.
  • Your Assignment 1 is due Monday, February 18 at 8:00am. Please refer to the Week 01 notes for details on your assignments. In addition to reading the textbook and watching the videos, you have exercises (Part 1 and Part 2) that need to be uploaded to the Dropbox on the course site. When you upload your zip file to the Dropbox, please be sure to include your name in your file names. For example:
