    Seeing just how differently the new forms behave in different browsers showed just how far HTML5 still has to go. I’ll have to be really careful before adopting too many of them without having solid javascript/jQuery backups for them.

    Now that we’ve had our last session, what do you want to know?
    What could we have done better?
    This session ended up feeling a bit rushed in the last hour. Lots of stuff just touched upon rather than explored. I can understand that it’s a lot of content. Hoping we delve deeper into some elements in the 5.3 course.

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?

    — Actually learned few interesting things in this class — like how Canvas and SVG work, learned about new forms, learned about font-faces and media queries, a bit about Java-script coding which will be useful for the next course, how to handle audio and video for different browsers.

    What did you learn from that?
    How to use them in web pages

    What will you do with that knowledge?

    Will be using them in my works whenever required

    Questions?

    Now that we’ve had our last session, what do you want to know?

    How to build dynamic websites

    What could we have done better?

    So far so good

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?

    very interested in media queries as this seems like a very dynamic way to load websites to various devices.

    What did you learn from that?
    how to disaply them in on different devices very easily.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    will try this at work since we have to support ipads and laptops with specific resolutions.

    Now that we’ve had our last session, what do you want to know?
    implementation using jquery (or other javascript)

    What could we have done better? would like more lab work for these new concepts but i guess that is why there is html5 3.

      Hi Yuki,
      Yes: Now that we’ve talked about and worked with the Semantic aspects of HTML5 we can take more time with the lab work and hands-on aspects of HTML5 features that need JavaScript in the HTML5 3 course. See you tomorrow.

  4. Liz Gosselin says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Media queries and web fonts.

    What did you learn from that?
    So many tools out there. How can you keep track?

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Find some time to create a useful set of bookmarks, or better yet, a webpage.

    Now that we’ve had our last session, what do you want to know?
    Not sure.

    What could we have done better?
    The pace was good. It was all good.

    • JimUBC says:

      Hi Liz,
      Yes – it’s time to start building some web pages. We are going to put a greater emphasis on that in the next course. See you tomorrow.

    Isn’t Google Webfonts a better standard of web fonts than @fontface? Alot of fonts that look nice are commercial fonts that you probably can’t just embed. Things like typekit cost money, and @fontface requires multiple versions to be practical in all browsers. Can we use google web fonts for the final assignment instead?

  6. Albert. says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? What did you learn from that? What will you do with that knowledge?

    Fonts was the most valuable. There are so many resources and tools to use. I will apply it to my personal blogs and to my work.

    • What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    >>Although the graphics (SVG or canvas element) is still a bit confusing, I thought getting an introduction to it was a great start. The web tools and reading links suggested in class will be extremely useful/valuable for me!
    • What did you learn from that?
    >>I learned that there are still a lot more things I need to know before being able to build a great web page.
    • What will you do with that knowledge?
    >>I plan to self-study/review all of the items encountered in both the HTML5 1 and 2 class (the two classes introduced a lot of things fairly quickly!). From there, I plan to further my HTML5 knowledge by taking more courses in the new year, after some pre-reading on Javascript and CSS.
    • Now that we’ve had our last session, what do you want to know?
    >>While completing assignment 4, I had a couple of questions for the form element:
    1. Regarding the “action” attribute, where should I send the form-data? Should I create a file name on my own…How does this work?
    2. What should I put in my “for” attribute in the label tag? I tried to validate my page but it says “the for attribute must refer to a form control”? Hmm…
    • What could we have done better?
    >>Nothing, HTML5 2 has been great. I look forward to learning more in the future. Thanks! Take care.
