Welcome


Hello and welcome to the Bathurst web class for 2008. This will be a great year I think.

So that we can keep in contact, I'll be posting lesson notes here on the cert IV weblog which might be worth bookmarking (perhaps in a del.icio.us account).

During the course I'll be asking you to post material on-line; reflections, interesting finds and assignment answers (for a great example from last year's class, check out Sharlene's blog) If you don't already have one, I'd like you to create a blog of your own. Blogger is a good free offering, but there are many others.

Once you have a blog set up, bookmark it, write an introduction about yourself and what you hope to get from this course and then come back here and leave me a comment with the web address of your space (copy and paste from the browser's address bar) - when I get the URL I'll add it to the hall of fame on the right :).

Another tool we'll be using a lot this year is the Training O2 website. Create an account there and then search for htmldog. Visit the link that comes up for the html beginner tutorial and work through the first four lessons: getting started; tags, attributes and elements; page titles; paragraphs and headings. After you've worn yourself out go back to the detail page for htmldog on the training o2 site and leave a comment on what you thought of the tutorials. For bonus marks see if you can figure out how to vote for the htmldog web site.

Whew, that's probably just about a brainfull for the first day, but if you want to do more, post another entry on your blog about your impressions of the web course so far - I'd love to hear what you think.
