The following two courses are linked here for historical completeness: they were originally designed as pre-cursor and follow-on to the HTML I and HTML II courses. They are not currently being taught in this form, and the Web pages have not been maintained. There are other on-line Introductions to the Internet that are more up-to-date.
So what's all this world wide web stuff about anyway? This course is designed with the complete WWW and computer novice in mind. We will first discuss the orgins of the WWW, what the goals and intents of it's original designers were, and how that has changed into something so mind-bogglingly useful that you can hardly pick up a magazine or newspaper that doesn't mention it somewhere. Definitions of terms and "Buzzwords" will be given so you can say things like "I was surfing through Yahoo yesterday and came across this great link to a Dilbert archive homepage, want me to mail you the URL?". Stun your friends and awe your enemies. Learn how to use Netscape like the pros do to navigate the web quickly and fearlessly.
