Course Objectives

Introduce students to the interdisciplinary aspects of Web Design and related technologies.  Explore standards based methods of preparing and presenting information via the World Wide Web.

On-time attendance is expected.  Students are responsible for material covered in a missed class.  Unexcused absence on the day of a test will result in a failing grade for that test. Class Participation is 30% of your grade!  On-time attendance is part of that, and is worth a half-point for each class (28 meetings = 14 grade points potential).  Late arrival will not receive attendance points.

Electronic Devices
This class requires us to access web pages from a variety of devices.  Devices are encouraged however: personal phone calls, texts, email, social media, etc. are not allowed.  We want to focus on the course curriculum and not have other distractions. Please silence all notifications during class time and refrain from answering any device notification.       

Grading / Evaluation
Class and Lab Participation:  40%
Final Project:  40%
2 Exams:  10% each

Letter grades will be assigned as follows:

























Study, Lab, and Project Work Policies
All reading should be done prior to the class discussion.  Students must be prepared to discuss assigned topics.  Each in-class contribution will be worth a half-point.  Students can accumulate up to 10 points in this manner, resulting in up to 4 points of extra credit.

Students should expect to perform their lab work during their scheduled lab time.  Many labs will be co-operative (ie, working as teams). Lab assignments are due before the beginning of the following lab session.  Late work will not be accepted for credit.  The cumulative value of lab work is 10%.

The final project is worth 40% of the grade.  There will be interim checkpoints for the projects as described in the course calendar.  Student project presentations will be in-lieu of a final exam, and will demonstrate the application of the concepts covered in class. 

Academic Honesty
Students are expected to practice academic honesty.  Cheating in any form will result in severe sanctions, including possible dismissal from the course.   Collaboration and the use of online resources is encouraged, however,  the presentation of anyone else’s material as a student’s own is strictly prohibited.

Students with disabilities may request accommodations as provided with federal law. All such requests should be made by contacting Robin Goodall, Learning Specialist, in the Center for Academic Success (Conant 224). She can be reached by phone at extension 1278 or by email at  Information regarding services and support, as well as documentation requirements, is available at the Center for Academic Success.
