Course Description

190-Web-Based Programming For Engineers - Part 1

The objective of this course series is to present web-based computer programming to engineers. Engineers generally learn a conventional computer programming language such as FORTRAN, Pascal, C++, etc. Since the advent of the internet and the World Wide Web, web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc. have built-in capabilities to interpret and implement programmed instructions written in a class of programming languages called scripting languages. Web-based programming involves writing codes, called scripts, in a scripting language. The scripts are embedded in the structure of web pages. Unlike conventional general purpose programming languages, web-based programming does not require any special software to be installed. The scripts are interpreted and implemented directly by the web browser. Web-based programming is an increasingly relevant and advantageous tool for engineers competing in the global marketplace in the age of the internet and the World Wide Web. Once uploaded to the World Wide Web, web-based applications are immediately exposed to a global audience.

This course is the first of a series on web-based programming. This course prepares participants for learning scripting languages and web-based programming. This course uses screenshots and an easily readable click-by-click narrative that engages participants as they proceed through the topics. An introduction to computers and computer networks, the internet and the World Wide Web, is presented. The fundamentals of the Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML), for building web pages, are presented in detail. Several examples are presented to illustrate the creation and editing of web pages using HTML alone. At the end of this course, participants will be capable of building a web page from scratch, and editing and updating existing web pages. Upon completion of this course, participants will be prepared to begin learning how to program web-based applications. On completion of this course participants will be able to identify professional situations in which applying web-based programming will be of great benefit to them in their fields of specialty, and to their organizations.

Very well written; logical and clear development of the course material; towards the end of the course there were a few points made which assumed knowledge not presented in the course ... but not significantly so. Overall - An excellent course. I would highly recommend it.

Very understandable for someone with no prior HTML knowledge. I do not think the correct video played for the traffic analysis video embedding.
The course author has checked the html file, the video link and the embed code, and they work as designed. The objective of the exercise is to demonstrate how to create a video link on a web page and then how to embed a video on a web page. In the exercise the user creates the links and tests them. A successful test completes the exercise. The video link is called Traffic Data Analysis. The 27 minute video used for this demo shows general data analysis calculations. The user does not have to watch the entire video for any purpose to complete the course.

I've taken courses from this Author before and he does a really good job in preparing a quality useful course. In this course in some places he provides the general syntax then only provides an example in the full code. I would prefer to see a specific example with an explanation of it use with the general example first. I find it harder to follow to scroll down and look at it with a lot of other code around it. If I had seen it above, it would be easier to follow below. Also, I felt like I wanted to edit some parts and replace words like "the former" with the exact reference such as "column width" so it reads clearer. It is correct the way it is written but when one is learning, the brain bandwidth needs to be used on soaking in the concepts not interpreting the writing. This is only meant as feedback to help improve a very well done course. I not only find that this as a good course but the course is also a valuable reference for the future that I will keep to refer to. I will also repeat the course as I think it will be worth it to re-enforce the learning. I really appreciate the effort the author put into providing a quality course. It worth every penny and will be useful to me in my practice!

It wasn't clear to me how I supposed to do the downloads which were required in the text. I finally found the Download Free Software link in my Course Order Information. Then I was able to get the downloads. Even then it wasn't clear which one the files I was suppose to download. Sometimes the changes I was supposed to make were already in the download.

Very comprehensive course. Took more than 4 hours to complete. Could not locate the "pictures" link or other link referred to on the SunCam website.
Use the "Download Free Software" link on the course materials page that you receive when you purchase the course. It contains the photos, pdfs and other materials that were applied in the tutorials for this course.

Superb Entry HTML5 Course
ThosMason

I have tried to learn HTML several times - without success.

This course "thinks like I do".

I have no objections, but the Quiz for Part 1 was a little beyond Part 1 and used notation not identical to the course content. This forced a "stretch" in answering questions, but actually added to the learning.
