Web Design Students:
TWO DAY ASSIGNMENT: All Web Design students should click on the link below:
Adaptive Technology for Blind and Visually Impaired Web Users
Please Note: Refresh your browser often. I have access to my email, and I am addressing your concerns between my other activities.
- Go to your Personal Website, and double check that you have all of the items called for in the CSS Tutorial for Dreamweaver CS6. Enter any missing elements into your CSS document.
- If you are sure that you have all of the elements described in the tutorial, add a background color to your CSS. Use the lightest version of whatever color you choose to maximize contrast and readability. Work with all of the CSS elements to fine-tune your CSS, including fonts, colors, sizes, and alignment.
Your TWO DAY ASSIGNMENT is to go to the business page, and compete the following Chapter 4: Consumer Purchasing and Protection assignments:
Your assignment is to compete the following Chapter 7: The Finances of Housing assignments:
Q: Your HTML and CSS assignments are too hard for High School students. Can you please stop assigning them to us?
A: I'm not so sure about that... Click here for another perspective, courtesy of B.H., OAHS class of 2015.
Q: I misspelled my password for my Google account a few times, and then they disabled my account and I can't access Google docs. I'm doing the assignment you asked us to do today on this account if that's okay. What should I do about the account?
A: The short answer is that Google has a recovery system, and you should use it. It may involve your phone- it's different in different cases. There should be a link to it right underneath the message telling you that your account has been disabled.
The long answer is that you need to write down the account name, user name (it's the same in this case), and the password every time you make an account online. No exceptions! Don't trust your memory! I taught this until I was blue in the face before you joined the course, so you missed that little gem. Even so, a good handful of students have come to me saying their accounts didn't work, and they all had one thing in common. They ignored my advice, and didn't write down the user name and password.
If worse comes to worse, you can always create another account. But this time, I know that you will write down the user name and password!
Q: I have fallen behind on my work- can I come after school for extra help?
A: Yes, I am generally available Monday through Thursday starting right at 2 p.m. Just let me know you're coming. I would be happy to help.
Q: I got a bad grade on my assignment. Is there anything I can do?
A: Yes. To start, correct all of the problems (not just some of them). Then, make an appointment to meet with me after school on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday- the choice is yours. I will re-evaluate your work and raise your grade if everything is corrected, and if you do this in a timely fashion. The reevaluation usually doesn't take very long.
Q: I decided not to do any work today during our class lab time, because I was not in the mood. You don't mind if I come in during your prep period for extra help, do you?
A: Yes, I mind. The reason I give you lab time during class is so that I'm available to help you if you need it. I need my Prep Period in order to prepare lessons, grade student work, and a variety of other professional responsibilities. The solution to this problem is for you to do your work during your scheduled lab time.
Q: I'm stuck and don't know how to do the next thing on my website. What should I do- wait for you to help me?
A: I will help you individually as time permits, but no, don't wait for me. Virtually every step that you need to follow is in the directions I provided on my website. Reread the directions on my website, and you will probably find the answer. If you still have a question, do your best to find the answer on the Internet. Everything I know about web design is on the Internet. Also, the last item in the menu bar in almost every application is labeled Help. Click on this menu, and look for your answer. The answer to every web design question you could possibly have can be found in one of these three places.
It is your responsibility to find the answers if I am not available to help you at that moment. Don't wait for me.
Q: You didn't help me during class, so I sat and didn't do anything because I was stuck. I can get an extension, can't I?
A: Probably not. It is your responsibility to get the work done by the deadlines that I have set. My expectation is that you will work independently, and solve 95% of your web design problems on your own, or in collaboration with the people that are seated near you. See the previous question.
Q: The picture on the left of the screen on the page nomad-c.htm covers up the bulleted list. How do I fix that?
A: Here is a solution to your problem:
Many of you have reported a problem with the bulleted list on the page nomad-c.htm. I researched the problem this morning, and found a website that has a possible solution. By adding padding to the right side of the image, the bulleted list becomes visible once again. Try this solution:
Search the code for the image tag <img> for your image.
To add Right Padding, insert the following style attributes after the url in the image tag <img>:
When you're done, the code should look like this:
