The World Wide Web and Scripts
Knowledge-Values Courses: Natural Science in Context
This course introduces students to the World Wide Web from the point of view of a user who surfs the Web, as well as from the point of view of an author who develops websites on the Internet. It describes web standards, networking protocols, and the latest development in various markup languages, such as HTML and XHTML. Students learn to create their own static web pages in part one, using features available from the markup languages. In part two, students use the knowledge learned in part one to incorporate dynamic content into their web pages, and learn to turn their information-only web pages into an interactive, goal-oriented website.
