    Highlights / Metacognition

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Learning how HTML, CSS, and JavaScript come together to create good websites
    What did you learn from that?
    Using just HTML alone isn’t a very good way of creating exciting or dynamic websites.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Continue learning CSS and pick up JavaScript.

    Questions?

    Now that we’ve had our first session, what do you want to know?
    I want to create an HTML5 website and see how the website will look with or without the use of Modernizr in different browsers. With the exception of IE8 and prior, will the website look much different?
    What could we have done better?
    So far so good!

      Hi Vinci,
      Modernizr won’t make things look different in any browser, but it will help you to create pages that allow you to test in real-time whether or not a particular feature (HTML5 or CSS feature) is supported. Once you know that you can work around missing features – even if you just tell the user what s/he is missing and suggest that s/he use a more modern browser.

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    The most important thing I learned in class was that html is used for structure, css is used for formatting and javascript is used for behaviors when it comes to building a website.

    What did you learn from that?
    I will use css and and javascript to make my website more appealing.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    I will continue to use css and javascript to help me build better website.

    Now that we’ve had our first session, what do you want to know?
    I just want to continue to build upon the knowledge I have acquired

    What could we have done better?
    Nothing, I just want to learn.

    Hi Jim,

    Learning about the different things one can accomplish with HTML 5 was quite interesting to me. It can be used to help distinguish the structure of the website (ie sections), and it was helpful to learn about the workarounds one can use if an older browser is used. This will all add to my general knowledge of HTML and will be useful when I update my personal website.

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Learning the different roles/features of HTML, CSS and Javascript to create a dynamic webpage.

    What did you learn from that?
    Well, it’s not just up to HTML5!

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Learn more about how the 3 languages work together.

    Questions?
    No.

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