AMERICAN STUDIES LAB
Wednesday, 4-5:30, Bryan 203
General introduction to working on/for the web.
- During this Lab we'll explore the Web Browser, discuss fundamentals of HTML coding, create a basic homepage, and discuss the ways in
which content can be generated and installed.
- We'll begin working on this HTML Tutorial in class.
- We'll also review this material on
use and web citation.
- We'll also decide on editors for sections of the American Studies Yellow Pages.
- For future reference, you may want to bookmark these pages:
NOTE: Whichever tutorial you use, please try to preview the materials up to Tables and Frames for this lab.
Intermediate HTML: Tables and Frames
After class, install home page links to subordinate pages for 1) American Studies
resources and 2) technical resources for web design. These will be the places where you can build both your personal resource base for doing American Studies and your toolkit for web design over the next two years.
For next week, sign up for a section of William Welles Brown, Clotelle: Or the Colored Heroine on the tagging sheet on my office door (Bryan 427); follow the directions and post your section to your homepage by next Wednesday.
