Take INSY426 Internet Authoring with Dan Bidwell and Bill Greenley.

Demonstrate skills learned in this course in my personal web page, in the Leadership home page, and by providing consulting and training to Leadership participants.

The techniques that I learned in this course are documented in my_web.html, and include the use of graphics for animation and 'image maps' for graphical menu selection, tables, frames, forms with scripting for data collection, and database access scripts.  Continuing development now includes security access and logging scripts, and the use of themes and cascading style sheets.

Development Plan Portfolio Documentation

Facilitate the development of the ITS web as an effective information resource.

Document initiatives implemented in the ITS web site, and reactions to them.

A first draft of the ITS web site was created in late 1998.  Minutes of the Administrative Computing Committee, which were archived back to mid 1996, were moved to this site.  Major developments for the site were planned as part of initiative to implement a portal on the Andrews web page.  Prior to this, the site as not promoted, and its existence was referred to only in response to specific requests, such as for our policies or organizational structure, or for specific projects, such as Y2K and the Wireless Networking initiative.

When the site has developed to the point that it can be formally announced, reactions will be noted and reported here.

These are just some of the links available from the ITS web site: 

  1. Y2K
