Navigating the Internet

Fall 1997

CIS3066: Navigating the Internet provides concentrated study in Internet-based programs and systems including email, usenet, gopher, ftp, talk, IRC, muds, and Web authoring techniques. The class begins with a study of Unix followed by an introduction to text based Internet programs that can be accessed from a Unix shell. Students proceed to learning about GUI Internet clients in the Windows NT and XWindows environments. The second half of the term is spent learning the basics of HTML programming and all of the latest Web authoring techniques including graphics, tables, frames, legal issues, video, sound, forms, Java basics, ActiveX basics and dynamic HTML. Web pages are created through writing straight HTML code and using Web authoring tools and programs. Students practice these skills in the creation of their own personal Web pages and work in groups to create Web pages for local organizations. This provides valuable experience in working in teams towards professional goals. This class is an excellent resume builder!
