Back to Syllabus
OVERVIEW: The class project will give you a chance to delve
deeply into an Internet topic of your choice. Students should create
a series of web pages and present the results of your research in a 10
minute talk in front of the class. As a minimum, you should have
a series of at least five web pages using proper web design. These
pages should include a title, your name, UVM, CDAE 195 Internet Applications,
a date, an e-mail link, have ten links to URLs related to your topic, three
pictures, backgrounds, and some animation. Use good site navigation
such as including a navigation table or bar on each page to make it easy
for your visitor to go to any page in your site. You are encouraged
to use things you will learn in this course such as tables, counters, guest
your web pages more attractive and interactive.
