IP489S13A HTML5 Crash Course – Session Five Notes

HTML5 logo

I’ll have more for you a little later but I wanted to get back to you with the notes for the final assignment.

Due August 10th (a little extra time)

In PeerWise:

  • Add three more questions
  • Answer all unanswered questions (please rate them and add comments as appropriate)

Web pages

  • Migrate your work from jsbin to web pages.
  • These pages should include semantic elements (article, section, cite, figure, and more) and at least one feature that you activate with JavaScript (canvas, offline storage, geolocation), -OR- build a small application in JavaScript (interactive form).
  • Your pages should pass the validation tests and the outlines should make sense (use the links in the footer of your template).
  • Please include a paragraph or two about the meaning and significance of the term “Semantic Web”. Feel free to use the links in the course web site (to articles and videos) and any other resources you like. But please provide links to your sources. (use <cite> and <blockquotes> as appropriate).

Preferred:
Please put the web pages on the UBC server (same as we were doing in WebMatrix) or on a public website if you prefer. Send me a link to your pages. You can use the email address in the first email from me from which I sent you the access codes.

If you cannot publish to the UBC server:
If you cannot get WebMatrix to work or have challenges with FTP – please send all your files to me in a compressed folder format – emailed as an attachment. You can use the email address in the first email from me from which I sent you the access codes.

Hope you had a great time this week. It was great to work with you.

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you in this session?
    Various syntax for constructing functions

    What did you learn from that?
    Functions can be named or anonymous, especially useful when the function is short and will probably not be used again anywhere else in the code

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Understand the different ways of creating functions and when it is useful to which one

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you in this session?
    Learning about objects and JSON.

    What did you learn from that?
    That objects are very useful because they are stored by name and property, and we can even put AJAX info into them and call later. The stringify/parse function allows lots of information to be stored easily.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Consider what kind of stored information would improve user experience on my sites
