This is the Web presentation for IT502 - Intermediate Web Design. Here, you will find all the information you will need to make it through the course: what we’ll cover, what you need to read, what coursework you’ll need to complete, where to turn for more information, and a whole lot more.

The contents of this site are subject to change throughout the semester. It is your responsibility to check for changes often. The list below will notify you of important changes. The latest changes are always at the top of the list. If you have any questions about the details of a given message, please contact your instructor at amgilder@cs.unh.edu.

5/2
I have just posted the link to Carter Quiet’s tutorial on the Tutorials page. You are not required to submit a critique for this tutorial (the grading has already been completed), but I have left the critique system open for those you who want to do so voluntarily. I’m sure Carter would appreciate the feeback!
4/30
I have posted the links for the Team Project presentations and implementations at the bottom of the Team Project page. Note that there are multiple links for one team’s presentation, and another team’s presentation may need to be downloaded and viewed locally since it is a .MOV file. If you need a compatible viewer, the best recommendation I can offer that’s cross platform is the VLC Media Player available from https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html. Also, please note that some of the presentations may be password protected. They’re the same sets of username and password that you’ve used for the individual presentation videos, so I’ve simply provided hints beside the links when they may be necessary.
4/24
I have updated the requirements for the Team Project to account for the “new normal”¬†of this semester. Rather than rewrite the entire page, I followed the approach I had previously used for the Individual Project and placed the necessary changes in the yellow box at the top of the page. This should allow you to easily identify what needs to be done differently. If I have further refinements to make, I will put each new update inside its own box at the top of the page.
4/23
I have posted links to the presentation videos for Jake Conte and Carter Quiet on the Schedule page. You are not required to submit critiques for either of these presentations (the grading has already been completed), but I plan to leave the critique system open for those you who want to do so voluntarily. I’m sure Jake and Carter would appreciate the feeback!
4/17
I have just posted the link to Jiwan Nepal’s tutorial on the Tutorials page. That leaves just one that has not yet been posted. As with Jake’s tutorial (discussed below), I am going to require critiques of Jiwan’s tutorial, while holding fast to the deadline previously established.
4/17
I have posted the link to Jake Conte’s tutorial on the Tutorials page. That leaves two that have not yet been posted. Since Jake’s was submitted within the expected timeframe, I am going to require critiques of his tutorial, but I am going to hold fast to the deadline of 11:59 PM on Tuesday, April 21. I cannot guarantee that any critiques submitted after that will be considered in the grading process, since I need to get the Individual Project grading wrapped up.
4/16
All of the tutorials that I currently have available to me have now been posted. The links are on the Tutorials page, and they’re all date-stamped accordingly. Note that there are currently three tutorials that I am not yet able to publish. When they become available I will make a decision about whether or not to require critiques of them. But for the moment, focus your energy on completing your critiques for the batch that I’ve just posted before 11:59 PM on Tuesday, April 21. Ideally, I want to be able to close off the submission of critiques at that point so I can finalize the Individual Project grades and send out grading reports before the April 28th deadline for choosing the P/F option.
4/15
I have made more video links available on the Schedule page. Please note that for a variety of reasons, I am not posting them in complete daily batches this week. As such, you will find that Jiwan’s video from last Tuesday is now available, James’s video for tomorrow is available ahead of time, and Jackson’s video from yesterday is not yet available. But I figured it makes the most sense at this point to batch them out as I can.
4/11
Since some of you had indicated in your critiques that the slides in Oliver Botthof’s presentation were difficult to read, Oliver has asked me to post his slides for you to download here. Use the same username and password you would use for my slides.
4/10
The tutorials that I have available from Thursday have been posted. The links are on the Tutorials page. Again if a link is not active, it simply means that I am not able to publish that tutorial at this time. I hope to include those in later batches (date stamped accordingly).
4/9
The tutorials that I have available from Tuesday have been posted. The links are on the Tutorials page. Again if a link is not active, it simply means that I am not able to publish that tutorial at this time. I hope to include those in later batches (date stamped accordingly).
4/3
All of the tutorials that have been submitted to date have been posted. The links are on the Tutorials page. Note that the navigational links for some of the tutorials were non-functional, so I have provided links to each individual page of those. Also note that the first one on the list (which had not previously been available is available as part of this batch. Use the dates in parentheses to determine which tutorials were posted at which times.
The links to yesterday’s presentation videos should now be active on the Schedule page.
3/31
The links to today’s presentation videos should now be active on the Schedule page.
3/29
Five of the six tutorials submitted last week have been posted. The links are on the Tutorials page. Note that the first name on the list is not currently a link. I am working to resolve some issues with this submission and hope to be able to publish it with a future batch. You’re only responsible for critiquing the tutorials that have been published. The date in parentheses following each link is there to help you identify which tutorials were published at which times. You have five days from that date to complete your critique of that tutorial.
3/26
The links to this week’s presentation videos should now be active on the Schedule page. Each presenter’s name on the schedule for whom a video has been published should now be a clickable link to their posted video. Personally, I have had the most consistent luck viewing the videos (especially those posted on Google Drive) using the Chrome browser. The videos posted on the wcit server are password protected. I have sent out the username and password via e-mail. Please note that you have five days to view these videos and submit your critiques to the online critique system. If you have not received either of the emails mentioned, please check your junk mail folder before asking for another copy.
3/24
I have added another colored box to the top of the Individual Project page to include an example of a simple multiple choice question in the additional format (described more fully in the second box).
3/19
I have further updated the requirements for the Individual Project with respect to the submission of exam questions. Please see the box at the top of the page dated March 19 for details.
3/17
I have updated the requirements for the Individual Project to account for the post-break adjustments necessitated by the Covid-19 outbreak. Rather than rewrite the entire page, I thought it would be clearer if I left the page as it had been since the beginning of the semester and simply discussed the necessary changes in the yellow box at the top of the page. Assuming you’ve already familiarized yourself with the rest of the page, this should allow you to easily identify what needs to be done differently. I suspect that I will have further refinements to make over time, and I will put each new update inside its own box at the top of the page so that you won’t have to dig through the whole page looking for updates.
2/19
The deadline for Checkpoint #2 of the Team Project has been moved to Tuesday, February 25.
2/19
Under the date February 20 on the Schedule page, I have added several download links to videos which you may find useful for purposes of reviewing material that was covered in IT403. Normally, I would cover the review of the CSS materials carefully in my IT502 lectures, but with us losing two classes already to delayed starts, I will need to make up time somewhere. Since the most logical material to cut from the course is the review, I have provided the CSS videos (plus some other materials) that I created some time ago when teaching IT403. I will let each of you decide for yourself how (and even if) you wish to utilize them.
1/31
The topics and due dates for the Individual Project have now been posted on the Schedule page, beginning on March 24th. These are hard deadlines for the presentations, and your tutorial and exam questions will be due by 11:59 PM on the date for which your presentation is scheduled. Please note that the order of the presentations within a given day’s schedule is subject to change without prior notice. There is also a possibility that the date of your presentation may be changed once we have met to discuss your project more fully, but this would only be done with significant advance notice and your agreement. Just to be safe, however, remember to check back and verify your presentation date a couple of days after that meeting.
