Course Description

192-Web-Based Programming For Engineers - Part 3

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 final part of a series on web-based programming. This course presents topics on the JavaScript scripting language. This course uses screenshots and an easily readable click-by-click narrative that engages participants as they proceed through the topics. This course starts with an overview of the branching and looping structures in JavaScript, followed by an in-depth presentation of JavaScript objects. Techniques to manipulate the web browser as well as handling of errors are also presented. Examples from various fields are presented to illustrate the application of the fundamental concepts in real world situations. On completion of this course, participants will be able to create fully functional interactive web pages and web applications that can be used to input and output data, as well as run complex algorithms. 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.

There are no required pre-requisites for this course. However, it will be helpful to understand the basics of creating web pages as well as the fundamentals of scripting languages as presented in the earlier parts of this course series.

The correct answer for exam question. . . is (a), not (c) as given in the exam results. I answered correctly, but was marked wrong. This needs to be fixed. Otherwise, this was an OK course.
You missed the word NOT in the question. It now appears in all caps, bold and underlined.

Portions of the review have been removed because they disclosed the answer to a question.

The entire web-based programming series is well written and builds upon each course. I took all three and highly recommend them. The only reason I am not giving this particular course five stars is because the test needs to be reviewed. In particular, three questions had problems. One was different than the practice test. In another, all choices were incorrect, and in a third, the explanation in the test is right but the answer itself is wrong. If this is fixed, this course would rate 5 stars.

This was more difficult than the other two courses. Since I don't really have any programming experience, I got confused in correlating the examples in the text with the questions on the test. I also felt that the answers to two of test questions were not correct ( questions 4 and 14). I believe question 4 should have been .... In question 14 I do not understand how the date was arrived. The date was given as ...

This is an extensive coverage of the basics of Web based programming. I appreciate how much effort the author took to develop a course that has value. Either I just do not understand something or the answer given to question #4 is incorrect? One of the other answers seemed incorrect until I went back and reviewed it again. Then I figured out that I was a victim of previous experience with programming! Thanks for a fine course. Hope you develop more!

This review is for all 3 parts of Web Based Programming. Very well written and very useful courses to get an intense but quick start to HTML and Javascript. I was actually surprised at how much value I received here as I wasn't really expecting much. Very good courses.

The course content is superb. It presents essential information in a direct fashion with good examples. Quiz question 14 appears to have a typo. Some of the quiz questions were tricky.
