The HTML and powerpoint classes taught by members of the LIS WebTeam are introductory classes intended to introduce you the basic principles and ideas of creating a basic set of web pages, or a basic presentation. By attending one or two of these classes, you will not magically transform into a highly-skilled webmaster or presentation guru. That takes time, patience, and lots of experience.
What these classes will offer you, however, is a foundation for basic web page creation and the insights needed for planning, organizing, and structuring a web site from beginning to end.
Every student will need to adapt what she or he has learned from these informational sessions and apply it to her or his own academic work, employment, and personal enrichment.
