Your username's and password's have been received and will be dispursed during lecture on Monday, July 6, 2009.

I've yet to receive the Username's & Password's from the System Administrator. As soon as I receive the accounts I will forward them along to you.

To clarify the requirements for lab 1, you are to use paragraphs, not lists, to define the various markup languages. Each paragraph should have an associated heading describing the markup language being defined.

Welcome to CS120, Introduction to Website Design! The class meets on Monday (Lecture) from 9:50AM-11:30AM, and Wednesdays (Lab) from 9:00AM-11:30AM. The Website may appear bare now, but as the quarter progresses we will add more content to the site.

A few policies that require mentioning:


All e-mails MUST have the following subject, "CS 120 - Summer 2009". Simply copy and paste this subject into your e-mail prior to sending. I receive quite a bit of e-mails each day, and utilize a filter to sort through them. If your e-mail does not contain the exact subject line, your e-mail WILL NOT BE READ.


Your assignments will be graded in class and online. To receive credit for your assignments you must submit your source files, along with all accompanying documents (css, images, etc...), to the CSNS Website. Along with these files should be a file linking directly to your "live", working assignment on the CS1 server. If you do not submit your original work to the CSNS Website, or if you fail to submit a link to your site, you will not receive credit for the assignment. NO EXCEPTIONS.

All assignments must be deployed on the CS1 server and accessible via the Internet. If they do not work as specified in the assignment, you will not receive credit for your work.

Course Notes

Each lecture/lab, different student's will be assigned the responsibility of taking notes for the class. These notes will be made available on the Course Website no later than one (1) day after the completion of lecture. These notes constitute 5% of your overall grade so be sure to turn them in on time. All notes must be at least 1-page in length, and typed in Microsoft Word format (.doc). Upload your document(s) directly to the CSNS Website before the deadline to receive credit.
