WSC Offers Hybrid Class on Web Development
The Computer Technology and Information Systems (CTIS) Department at Wayne State College is offering a special course for individuals who wish to enhance their knowledge and skills regarding the creation of Web pages and Web sites.
The course is being offered as a hybrid course, with part of the course delivered as face-to-face classroom instruction and part as online Internet-based instruction. The face-to-face portions will be delivered as evening class meetings.
The CSC-0396H0 (Call Number 10031) Web Development Tool course will give an introduction to tools for creating Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) using Adobe Air and Adobe Flex. The use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to create menus and creative page layout will be introduced. Web programming using Rails and Ruby on Rails will be introduced.
Students should have a basic knowledge of Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). Educators, web designers, computer enthusiasts, persons responsible for creation or maintenance of their organization's web content, and other interested individuals who have had some experience with Web page or Web site creation will find this course useful and valuable.
The course will begin June 3 and will conclude Aug. 6, but there are only three (3) face-to-face class meetings. The dates for those meetings are June 3, June 17, and June 24. Those dates are all Wednesday evenings and the class will meet in Gardner Hall Room 211 on those dates from 6:30 to 9:15 p.m. on each of those evenings. The rest of the course will be delivered online, so students will need reliable access to the Internet during the early June to early August time period.
Preregistration is required. Early registration is encouraged as space in each course is limited and available seats in the course are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
