Bringing Interactivity to the Web: The JAVA Solution.
Knee, Richard H.; Cafolla, Ralph
Java is an object-oriented programming language of the Internet. It's popularity lies in its ability to create interactive Web sites across platforms. The most common Java programs are applications and applets, which adhere to a set of conventions that lets them run within a Java-compatible browser. Java is becoming an essential subject matter and teaching tool within corporate and academic settings. JavaScript was developed to fill the considerable gaps in functionality between HTML, CGI and Java. One of Java's great advantages is its inherent security. There is a challenge involved in integrating Java into traditional education programs. The following outline is suggested for providing educators with the Java skills to meet their instructional objectives: (1) draw up a detailed outline for the class; (2) create a template for content, demonstrations and projects; (3) research content for topics that apply to education, note change; (4) configure technological environment, know your lab and its limitations; (5) design technology demos--use of student work from previous courses; (6) develop the lecture content; (7) develop a resource list of tools, Web sites and projects; (8) develop student and instructor notes via presentation tools; (9) create a plan for updating course materials; (10) develop a list of student objectives or outcomes.
