General Information


Course Description:

    A study of beginning computer programming using PHP and HTML. Requires "hands-on" programming independent of classroom instruction. Topics include variables, simple and complex data structures, object-oriented design, debugging, and language uses. The course will use PHP as the basis of understanding these concepts and to allow the students to learn how to create dynamic web pages.

Class Listserv:

  • The instructor will use the listserv system to communicate information to students throughout the class. It is your responsibility to read mail sent to that account listed in the class listserv, either by accessing the account directly or by forwarding mail sent to that account to another Internet e-mail account that you read on a regular basis. Contact the instructor if you need your email account on the list changed.

    Note: It is best that you use your UNT eaglemail account for course e-mail. Hotmail and other free e-mail services tend to block lists or places messages into a junk folder. Be sure to check often at the beginning of the semester that you are getting your course e-mail updates.

Class Meetings and On-Line Virtual Meetings Information:

    The class will meet three times face-to-face and the rest of the dates using the Created Realities Group Distributed Learning Software to receive additional course instruction. Details on downloading the software and using it will be discussed on the course listserv.
