Date, Time & Place: This class is a regular lecture class meeting Monday/Wednesday/Thursday at 4:10 PM at the Morgan Hill site. Since all assignments are available online, students can also take it as an online class. Students that attend lectures consistently get higher grades for the course, especially if you do not have prior computer experience. While close to 100% of the students attend lectures complete the course with a high grade, less then 70% complete the course that do not attend lectures.
Students will be required to complete assigned readings, writings, online discussion, quizzes or exams, and projects each week. There will be weekly due dates, but students may log on to complete work at any time during the week. 
Description: An introduction to using Hypertext Mark-Up Language (HTML) and Extensible HTML (XHTML) to create web pages which can be uploaded and displayed on the World Wide Web. Students will use HTML/XHTML to create web pages with text in various sizes and colors, links to other sites, background color or patterns, graphics, tables and mailto links. Principles of design and color as they apply to screen presentations will be included. This course has the option of a letter grade or credit/no credit. May be repeated three times for credit. Also listed as LIB 6 and DM 6.
Objectives: Students will learn how to create Web pages using HTML.   HTML is the language used to create valid Web pages. This the first course in our Web page classes. HTML skills are necessary before taking our other Web classes such as Flash, DreamWeaver, and JavaScript. The ability to create and modify Web pages is necessary for many other courses and occupations and a good item to list on a resume.
Web Orientations: The Gavilan Library will offer several orientations to online courses during the first two weeks of the semester. If you have never taken an online course, this orientation will provide critical information to help you be successful in this class. If you are unable to attend an orientation on campus, an online tutorial will be available. For more details see the schedule of orientations
Texts: HTML5 and CSS: Complete by Shelly & Woods, Course Technology, (ISBN 1-1335-2612-8 [7th edition]) or see course syllabus for other editions. If you plan to take the next HTML course, CSIS 7 Web Page Authoring II, you should buy the larger edition of this book, HTML COMPREHENSIVE Concepts and Techniques by Shelly, Cashman, & Woods. Look at the syllabus for CSIS 07.
The books are available in the Gavilan bookstore or online.
