Spring 1998

 

Web Works

The Internet . . . that vast, growing, overwhelming maze of text, images, and sound. . . do you have a compass?

Navigate the web and efficiently locate the information you need through skills you'll gain taking Weekend College courses offered at Central Missouri's Ward Edwards Library. One such class is Introduction to the Internet via the Internet, taught through the Department of Library Science and Information Services. This class meets in person twice, at the beginning and at the end of the semester. All other class activities are conducted over the Internet.

Once you are comfortable navigating the web, how about creating your own web site? Central Missouri's Advanced Internet class can teach you hypertext markup language (HTML), the building blocks with which you can create your own corner of the web.

Library faculty members V. Lonnie Lawson and John Small are your guides through this wonderful world of computer information. Of this experience, John Small said, "This course went very well, and we are very happy with the outcome, but were surprised at the amount of time and effort it took to offer it this way."

Fall 1997 was the first time the class was conducted with the Internet format. This was the first class offered for Central credit via the Internet. Internet courses are offered every semester through Extended Campus' Weekend College program.
