“Hello, World” HTML files

Your “Hello, World” files should be text files, titled YourLastName_HelloWorld.html, that contain correctly formatted HTML such that the file displays in a web browser.

At minimum, your “Hello, World” page  should contain the following elements:

  • two levels of headings
  • two paragraphs
  • a link
  • a bulleted or numbered list
  • an image
  • an HTML5 video element (you can download an .mp4 from archive.org)

At a later stage, we will also create CSS files to accompany your .html file. Title this file YourLastName_HelloWorld_CSS.css.

The CSS version of your “Hello, World” page should contain at minimum, in addition to the elements above, the following stylistic features:

  • two text colors
  • two font sizes
  • centered and left justified text
  • a serif and sans serif font
  • one stylistic change to the image (such as alignment or a border)
  • one stylistic change to the video (such as alignment or a border)

Instructions for posting your Chapter Video Remix to your personal websites

Even though you are working in groups on this project, because you have individual personal websites each member of the group needs to post the video to the portfolio page on their own site. (NOTE: If I noted problems on that page at the time of your last submission, you should correct those problems prior to submitting this project.)

The entry on the portfolio page should consist of:

  1. An embedded video of the project (instructions for embedding YouTube videos). To add the embed code you will need to access the “HTML” view of the page, not the “Visual” one (see pp. 178-179  of MM for details on the HTML view).
  2. A descriptive title (not “Ch. 3 of Rheingold” but “Participatory Culture and Net Smarts”) and a short summary of the video’s content (so readers will know what they are clicking on).

To make your page seem a unified whole, you should work on making this entry visually similar to the entry for your multimodal analysis.
