ENGW 3332: Writing Online

Week 4: Content Management Systems; Working with Images

I enjoyed looking at the drafts of your résumé projects in class yesterday, and I’m excited to see how they turn out. Some of you are ready to put the finishing touches on your Unit #1 project, while others may need to spend more time revising the structure of your résumé or cleaning up your code. (The W3C Validator is a harsh master!) Don’t forget that Unit #1 is due at the beginning of class on Tuesday. Please review the assignment details before you submit your project, and don’t forget the final piece of the assignment: a one-page memo explaining and justifying the choices you made as worked on your résumé.

After you submit your résumé projects, we’ll be ready to move on to Unit #2, the Print-to-Web Conversion Project. Here’s how we’ll start:

  • On Tuesday, we will discuss the difference between static websites and dynamic websites powered by content management systems. Before you come to class, please read “Why Do I Need a Content Management System?” and “Designing for Content Management Systems.”
  • On Thursday, we will talk about how to find, edit, and insert images into webpages. Please read Hours 10 and 11 in the Sams book before you come to class.

If you have any questions about these plans, or if you want to reserve a time to see me during office hours on Monday, let me know.
