Website Deployment Prerequisites
A web page is a document, typically written in HTML/XHTML, that is almost always accessible via HTTP, a protocol that transfers information from the website's server to display in the user's web browser.
The pages of a website will be accessed from a common root URL called the homepage, and usually reside on the same physical server.
The URLs of the pages organize them into a hierarchy, although the hyperlinks between them control how the reader perceives the overall structure and how the traffic flows between the
different parts of the sites.
You can take this course on
- Macintosh, or
- Linux platforms.
You will need to decompress the software for this course.
The course resources will be discussed in the next lesson.
Online students are usually adults, who are either working or planning to join the workforce. They are self-motivated, disciplined individuals serious about the course they have enrolled in.
A good study environment is essential for them to succeed, while maintaining the balance between home and family.
Online educators design courses with this specific point in view and you will be surprised at the amount of planning that goes into creating an instruction style that will suit the learning style of different individuals to give them the perfect learning experience.
Can Traditional Instruction Strategies be Adapted To an Online Environment? Unlike a physical classroom where the student depends on the instructor for data and information, the teacher in an online course plays the role of a collaborator
who facilitates the learning process with the help of a curriculum designed to guide the student to work out a solution.
Traditional teaching models are combined while designing online courses, to come out with the best fit for an online environment with its unique needs.
Which Are The Traditional Adult Learning Strategies Commonly Used? Adapting to the different demands of online education, instructors and learners have shifted to a new teaching-learning environment,
where students have become responsible enough to take control of the learning process. Educators customize various elements of adult learning, such as discussions, lectures, small group work,
and collaborative work to create an environment of round the clock, across the world, joint study, aided by multimedia communication facilities.
How Can I Create My Own Working Environment?
As a motivated and disciplined learner, follow some simple tips:
Create you own timeline; set your routine and schedule your coursework according to the study time available to you. Finish your assignments before time to avoid a last-minute rush; if required, set deadlines with buffer days.
Communicate well; since you do not come face to face with your instructor and peer group, it is important to clarify things when in doubt and not assume. Think from the perspective of other participants in your group.
Do not get impatient if things move a little slow; this is expected as you may be working in different time zones.
Schedule all meetings, online conferences, submissions, and any other requirement with the same degree of seriousness as you would do if you were in a campus
