How To Teach Basic HTML in One Hour.
King, David
This paper describes how librarians at the University of Southern Mississippi teach faculty, staff and students the basics of making a World Wide Web home page in a one-hour classroom setting. Following a brief description of the background to the class, three distinct parts of the class are discussed. Each class begins with a PowerPoint presentation that allows the presenter to introduce himself or herself and the topic, and to provide basic information that can be repeated during the demonstration part of the presentation. The PowerPoint presentation can be divided into four sections: Introductory Material, Definition of HTML, Basic HTML Tags, and Explanation of HTML Editors. After the PowerPoint presentation is finished, a real-time demonstration of basic home page construction is provided. The demonstration can be done in at least two ways: a hands-on demonstration where all attendees are seated at individual PCs, or a hands-off demonstration where the presenter creates a page while attendees watch and ask questions. The third part of the class consists of a handout of supplemental information given to all class attendees. The handout is divided into three sections: Basics, Extras, and For More Help. A sample handout is included in the appendix. (AEF)
