    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    – Learning about the new elements of HTML5 and how to use them (e.g. section versus article)

    What did you learn from that?
    – Semantic elements not only help organize the HTML for the person writing the code but assists programs so that the webpage is accessible to those with disabilities.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    – Use semantic elements in a way that best describes the message I’m trying to convey to the reader (e.g. section and articles). Also I’ll be using caniuse.com to make sure other new elements (not necessarily the semantic ones) are compatible with the browsers.

    Now that we’ve had our first session, what do you want to know?
    – What other fancy new elements we can use.

    What could we have done better?
    – So far so good

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

    I really enjoyed yesterday’s class as we were required to do some group work. There were two very valuable things I learned in yesterday’s class which was in the new elements in HTML 5, the other was about caniuse.com which is also very helpful.

    2)What did you learn from that?

    I learned that these elements can assist those with disabilities in terms of accessing webpages.

    3)What will you do with that knowledge?

    Along with using caniuse.com, I will use these new elements to provide a better understanding of what I want to communicate with the individual viewing the webpage.

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

    What could we have done better?
    I am looking forward to more classes.

    I was interested to learn about the different kinds of semantic elements that can help structure a page. I can now use that knowledge to improve the semantic structure on any webpages that I may create and understand that doing this can help search engines recognize what kind of content is on the page.

    Good to know and practice on how to organized content, with different sections and articles.
    knowing semantic elements help writing web content for both end user and web server.
    with this knowledge, can make the web site in best practices.
    hope will learn more new element and have more chance to use them.

    Hi Jim,

    I have been having some trouble logging into Web Matrix with the information you provided in the handout. The moment I log in, the program states connection error under dotnet.tech.ubc.ca. I have been trying to do my homework, but I’ve had an unsuccessful connection.

      Hi Enrique, (I replied earlier, but you posted your note in a different course so I’m replying again).

      If you cannot connect, then build the webpage locally on your machine and copy it to a USB key or email the file to yourself, and we can upload it to the server tomorrow night in the lab.

      Questions / Considerations

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Using semantic elements to create section outlines.
    What did you learn from that? That semantic elements are used for structure only and not for styling… that was confusing before.
