There is no cost for the tutorial.
For people who want to learn more, there is also an advanced tutorial.
It's part of the larger WebMonkey website which includes, among other things, tutorials for other languages.
There are code snippets to study/integrate into websites.
Type of Material:
This material can supplement a standard programming course or lab sections.
The tutorials are fun and readable. They can be used in a flipped classroom approach (assign a topic/section/coding tryout before a class discussion).
Identify Major Learning Goals:
The student can -
- learn the basics of computer programming
- learn about the Document Object Model
Target Student Population:
College, high school, working professionals, beginners, intermediate, and advanced learners (advanced section).
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Knowledge of HTML/CSS basics.
For the programming portion:Solid foundation and understanding of math such as; algorithms, variables, statements, and functions.
-Contains multiple examples
-Content is broken into logical chunks
-Includes foundational knowledge
-Provides additional resources
-Exercises to cement the learning
-code snippets "to steal" and learn from them
-articles to think through the material and to become aware of the current trends in web design
The reading is LONG-perhaps break up some of the content and label the tutorials (beginner, intermediate, advanced, programming background needed).
Please add a question/answer instructor section.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
Clean material in a conversational reading style.
Clear, up to date examples.
Good resources for additional studying
Question/answer session or a wiki for the studnets.
There are a lot of inappropriate/irrelevant commercials at the bottom of each page (the price of free space for a great tutorial). There should be a warning at the beginning of the tutorial to ignore these commercials-they are distracting).
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
Excellent and clearly presented material
Good templates and "code snippets"
Excellent section on color coding
Very nice reference section
Streamline the navigation so that there are links to all lessons (Table of Contents).
Please make more font/background contrasting (it's a bit too light).
