The web site is good place to look for a wide variety of information, such as college catalog, course description, phone numbers, etc.
Class Hours This is an online class, with no lectures, but I will be at the Morgan Hill site 3 evenings (Monday/Wednesday/Thursday) during the first 5 weeks of the Summer session, where you can get help on the homework. The lab at the Morgan Hill site is available for you to work during that time. You can also get access to computers at any of the three sites (Gilroy, Hollister, or Morgan Hill) when they are open.
class will be easier for you if you have some familiarity with HTML. (You
don't need to be an expert!)
If you would like to review or learn some simple HTML, please see one of the online tutorials below:
This one is a straight-forward tutorial.
This one lets you edit their examples and see the effect immediately.
Student Responsibilities: Read the text. You need to spend several hours EVERY week on this class. If you disappear AND stop working on this class, I may drop you.
You can save yourself a lot of wasted time and learn a lot more if you read the textbook. Read the first 3 chapters of the book the first week.
This is a class for beginners, but you will need some basic skills in text editing and operating system use such as opening and saving files. You can probably learn most of the windows basics in the class.
You do not need a computer at home to do this class,
but you can do homework outside class on other computers. The computer labs on
Attend class: Do not get behind in the class. The class is accumulative. What you learn this week will be used to do the work next week. If you miss classes you will soon be lost. Plan to miss no classes. Bring your textbook and all handouts to class each meeting.
Grading: This course has Credit/No Credit Option. You will normally get a grade in the class, but if you fill out a Credit/No Credit petition before 1/3 of the class has passed, you can take the class for credit/no credit. Petitions are available at the office or registrar. Please tell me if you do request a Credit/No Credit Option. In order to get a Credit, you need to earn at least a C grade.
Course Learning Outcomes
If you want or need a good grade because you want to transfer to a 4-year school, are on academic probation, want a scholarship, or just want good grades do the work for a good grade. Donít bother telling me you need a good grade the last week if you have not done the work for a good grade.
Drops: If you stop attending class, you must fill out a class drop form or you will get an F grade in the class. This does not do you, me, or the school any good. So if you stop taking the class, drop it at the A&R office.
Special needs: If you have special needs such as hearing problem, visual problems, or other needs, please tell me after class and I will try to assist you.
After all that, this is a fun class. You will learn a lot that will help you in your other classes and help you obtain useful job skills. I am interested in suggestions about assignments, lectures, and the material covered
