HTML 1.0 (posted 11 February 2004)
HAha...not only was this site helpful to me in learning/understanding HTML but it was also a mini example of a choose your own adventure...I was led by different links either through the story linearly or to different pages to show examples and then forced to press the back button to get back to where I just was. I think this is a fun way to learn the different parts of HTML and connecting it to what we have been previously discussing in class.
Yes, having each small step illustrated by an actual web page is a great idea, so you can see exactly what every change does.
I've been doing HTML for a while, but I could NEVER explain/teach it in such a simple way! Great job to MITH!
June, I like your idea of this tutorial as a Choose Your Own Adventure tutorial! haha
Argh, I tried to build the Haiku machine using an ISML tag, but ti doesn't seem to work on WAM.
I did the pull down thing during class since it was the first thing I thought of. Here is what I did http://www.wam.umd.edu/~timmfin/haiku.html. Nothing super fancy but it has the basic form elements to get the job done. Note, I don't actually have any lines of poetry in there, just nosensical examples.
I liked what Anastasia and Tim did for the Haiku machines. I'm not sure I'm up to that caliber yet, but the tutorial and the class refreshed what little HTML experience I have and reminded me of some of what I learned in UNIX a million years ago. I'm looking forward to doing some more work with HTML.
Tim, I like your approach, although you should put some poetry in there... ;-) Did anyone think of another way to implement it?
This is way late, but I finished my haiku machine during the last lab class. The link is here: http://www.wam.umd.edu/~apanagar/hello.html - I think this is actually done using the same method as Anastasia used, but I didn't double check. Anyway, sorry if it's redundant.
Looks good Ananth, thanks--
