September 1, 2004

Welcome to the Web Surfing and Design Class. The first assignment will make use of offline surfing. Below is a repeat of the readme file for this class in case you will be repeating this at home. For this assignment, you should go to the CYBERMEME WEBSITE and look for the article on Hurricane Hugo. Read the article and make an outline of it in NOTEPAD (see below) and save on your diskette. Proportion your time to do this during the class period. This is Objective W01 (see below). The content and the techniques you use for doing this are both important.

README File from the CD Folder webcl01

Welcome to the offline surfing of the Cybermeme websites system of Bro. James. This folder is an off-line alternative to use when the outside internet connection is not available. This is contained in the webcl01 folder which stands for web class 01.

There are 2 START files. START01 will take you to a menu for the Virtual Yearbook which is not in this folder. Just go to the index page and then to the Cybermeme website. START02 will only work if you select Internet Explorer to open it. The links to each part of the several websites only work within the website. The outside links will not work offline.

Each assignment you do in this class is called an Objective and these are numbered starting from Objective W01.

Please follow the instructions from your teacher as to what you are to surf and read.
The assignment may be either handwritten on loose-leaf paper according to the assignment rules which were given to you previously or they may be simply typed using NOTEPAD (not WORDPAD or WORD). Using NOTEPAD will enable you to become ready for writing html code in later classes. NOTEPAD does not have much formatting which eliminates problems in the writing of html. You can simply type you Student number, Name, Objective Number and title when you begin and then do whatever writing is required of you. Then save the NOTEPAD file as w01
on your diskette. Do not save anything else on your diskette unless told otherwise.

This README file is written in RTF format and is not a NOTEPAD file.

Send email to sjhs@islands.vi (paste or write the address into the mail to be sent in your web-based mail program).


September 2,3, 2004

Congratulations to all students for your participation in yesterday's class. If your computer does not have the virtual websites folder on it, take the time first to use one of the CD's to place it in the computer. The best place to keep the folder is "My Documents" so that other classes don't accidentally erase it.

If everyone has the internet working today, then you may not have to use it. Today, you should observe the St. Joseph High School website from the links on the CD or online at http://www.islands.vi/~sjhs/ and if you are reading this you are there already.

Observe as many of the pages and links as possible - especially the ones on the website. For this assignment, don't spend too much time on offsite links. While observing, do Objective W-02 which consists of listing and writing about what each part of the website contains. Try to identify any techniques that are used so you can be aware of them when you make your own webpages. Look at the filenames that appear for each of the links. Take your time and spend the entire period doing this. Be sure to write descriptions in your own words. Do not just cut and paste.

Do it all in Notepad again and save the file with you student ID number followed by the Objective number, there should be no spaces and all should be lower case. This is important that we are consistent in doing this so when we do any class projects, we can easily link the various files. As an example, if your student ID number is 217 and the Objective number is w-02, save the file exactly as 217w02 without any suffix (notepad doesn't show the .txt suffix so don't type it in - as you may wind up with 2 suffixes.

Be careful of spelling and be sure to use all of the class time. Points will be deducted from this assignment if you don't follow these instructions exactly and if you don't have many details written down.

Be sure to turn in your completed assignment on the diskette before your leave.

Be sure to follow -

September 23, 2004

1) Your grades are posted at gradeconnect. 4 students still need to register for gradeconnect and 3 need to send email. To caculate your current grade, add the total of your 8 assignment grades and divide it by 72 and change it to a %. Then add that number to your test grade and divide by 2 to find your current average. For example if you had all 9's, the sum is 72 and when you divide by 72 and change it to a % it becomes 100%. If you got 80% on your test, then add it to 100% and the total is 180%. Divide 180% by 2 and your average is 90%.

2) Finish W10 by submitting the written paper of send the email describing the weather forecast for today.

2) Finish Objective W13 and all the items requested of you for September 27, 2004.

3) Then do Objective W15 - Making a Web Page for your book report on "The Tell-Tale Heart"

A) Use notepad and the usual file type (ID # and w15) but save it as html or htm on you diskette when you are finished . Your final saved file could look like 218w15.html if your number was 218. You need to consider what was taken in class about the html or htm not being visible and not being repeated twice. See below about starting the file in the usual way. Use small case letters for the html codes

B) Your web page should make use of all of the HTML that was taken in class and should include the head title and section titles. You should have at least 3 or more paragraphs with at least 3 or more sentences in each and with a space between each paragraph and a larger, centered main title with "by" and your full name centered underneath the title. You should have a separate section title (with letters a little smaller than the main title about Edgar Allan Poe. You can start by making a new blank notepad file (as usual - not html). Copy and paste the words of your book report into the new file. Then start adding the proper html codes to turn your book report into a web page as specified. When finished with all of the html code then save the file with the html suffix and delete the original file without the html. Again be careful so you don't delete the html file if it is not visible.

C) To test your web page, go to Internet Explorer and open your html file. It should contain all of the elements and be neatly arranged. You can view your html from Internet Explorer by viewing the source but you can't edit it from there. Do not save it as an Internet Explorer file.

D) You will be graded on your use of the html taken in class only and its appearance on Internet Explorer. Do not add any other html. You are responsible for proper spelling, grammar and punctuation. Use the online dictionary if necessary.

4) If you finish before the end of class, go to the SJHS Web Portal, then to the Online Literature Library, and then to Charles Darwin, The Voyage of the Beagle, Chapter 17, Galapagos Archipelago. Read that selection until the end of class.

It should show have a meaningful title and show how you put together the various items of information that you read. Type this in notepad and save 2 copies on your diskette. Use one copy to convert to a web page by adding the proper html to it. You will eventually save it as 218w26.html where 218 is your number. You will be linking to this from your simple opening index page. Do not use any graphics.

3) Prepare a simple index page with notepad and save it as index.html on your diskette. It should say A Science Research Paper by (your name) and then have a link to 218w26.html (which need not be finished yet). You will use this page to start your tripod web page beginning on October 19, 2004.

4) W26 will be your exam grade and will be determined by what you place online and how well you did W23 and W24. W26 will be a percentage grade and will count 20% of your final grade. It includes the proper signing up for a free web site at tripod and your returning of the parent/guardian form.

1) Today, first make sure that you have your index.html file ready as indicated for October 18,2004. Hold off in doing your research paper until you register for a tripod page and then after confirming your registration, you will be uploading your index.html file to your tripod page using the cuteftp program which has been installed on all of the computers.

2) First observe the tripod webpage which was registered and uploaded from the computer room. Because it is a free page you will see ads on the top. Go to this page at http://sjhswebsite.tripod.com/ Your index page will show up the same way and your address will be your ID in place of sjhswebsite.

3) Next, go to http://www.tripod.lycos.com/ and click on " NewUsers Sign Up". Then go to "Tripod Free SignUp" Follow the instructions given on the handout and explained in class for signing up. Your ID should be yuor number in this class followed by your first name. If that does not take, then also place your number after your first name. Use a password that you will remember-write it down if your must but keep it secret. It is very important that you don't forget your password as it can be very difficult to finish the registratiion - and there goes your exam grade! Don't give your street address or phone number on the registration but do give your correct email address and age and other information. For this current webpage, choose "Home and Family" only for your ad content and don't check any of the special offers. Then be sure to place the hard-to-see confirmation number into the box.

4) When you have been accepted for tripod registration, send the URL of your website to sjhs@islands.vi and open the CuteFTP software. In the upper left hand corner, click on FTP - Site Manager and go to Cute FTP sites- Anonymous FTP sites -predefined sites-CuteFTP Related Sites and connect on the one site that is shown. It should take you to the Cute FTP with its software in the column on the right and your computer's files are on the left. Don't transfer any files, this was a test to show you how the FTP works.

5) Next, Go back to the top of the the Site Manager and edit the tripod.com site. You need to place your exact tripod ID and password down on the form and then go to Connect. It may take 5 minutes of more to connect especially if everyone is doing it at the same time and it will only work if you have your exact ID and password and if ftp.tripod.com is already on the form. If you are successful, then you will find your index.html file on the left column and transfer it to your website column and delete the other index.htm which is already there. Check out your website to see if it comes up to your index page and the go and continue to finish your science report page. Be sure to remove your ID and password from the CuteFTP as anyone will be able to open up your website and edit it.

6) During your extra time be sure to check out the TERMS AND CONDITIONS for Tripod. You are responsible to follow them and there are restrictions for those under 18 in visiting or taking part in some of the tripod websites or activities.There are other restrictions for those who are 13 or younger.
