Date, Time & Place: This class meets entirely online. During the Summer 6-week session, I will be at the Morgan Hill site on Monday/Wednesday/Thursday evenings. You can get help on the course during those days. 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: Fundamentals of JavaScript client-side programming for Web pages requiring data collection or other user interaction. Students will create Web pages that execute on the client (personal system) using JavaScript. This course may be repeated one time for credit. This course has the option of a letter grade or credit/no credit.
Objectives: JavaScript is used on Web pages to interact with the user of the page. In this class we will teach you how to write JavaScript programs that will be placed inside Web pages.
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: The texts being used for the current semester are listed below:
JavaScript by Example (2nd Edition, 2011), ISBN 0-13-705489-0. An older edition seems to be very similar to the new edition and is much cheaper if you buy it on the Web. JavaScript by Example by Ellie Quigley, Prentice-Hall, ISBN 0-13-140162-9 (2003). The books are available in the Gavilan bookstore or online.
Syllabus: For more details, you can see the class syllabus for the current semester.
