Course Description
This course provides an introduction to the various languages, tools, and programming techniques used to program on the World Wide Web. The fundamentals of client-server programming will be emphasized. These topics will be covered: HTML, cascading style sheets, Dynamic HTML, JavaScript, applets. Due to the particularly dynamic nature of the Web environment, course content will change as appropriate. Prerequisites: CS 219. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy

To provide the students with an in-depth understanding of client-side web programming, it does not address server-side programming in depth.  Students will be assigned projects to enforce the learning objectives of topics presented.  Students must read all chapters prior to each scheduled class meeting. Students are expected to be well-prepared to discuss examples and assignments provided at the end of each chapter or handed out by the instructor. Discussion of these examples and assignments will be part of the basis of the class participation grade. Students will also complete one web development term project outside of class and also prepare a presentation at the end of the course.

Academic Honesty
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.

Plagiarism
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing.

Attendance Policy
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "WH".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
