Welcome to COT 207B, Web Site Construction and Management. This course is designed for those who want an overview of and hands on experience with creating web sites. We will cover various concepts, methods and tools for creating and debugging HTML and scripted documents and then publish them to a web server. This class has a prerequisite although this will be waived by the instructor if you have a basic knowledge of computers and keyboarding skills. Time will be available in class to do your assignments as there is an extensive hands-on component to this course.
