Creating and Maintaining Data-Driven Course Web Sites.
Heines, Jesse M.
This paper deals with techniques for reducing the amount of work that needs to be redone each semester when one prepares an existing course Web site for a new class. The key concept is algorithmic generation of common page elements while still allowing full control over page content via WYSIWYG tools like Microsoft FrontPage and Macromedia Dreamweaver. The paper explores both client- and server-side techniques and discusses their advantages and disadvantages. The most advanced techniques are those that encode control information in XML rather than HTML or JavaScript and apply that information on the server side using XSL and JavaServer Pages. The paper also touches on course organization techniques that might involve students in the creation and maintenance of course Web sites, thereby fostering more student-centered learning.
