References from the lessons listed on Anne's World: Web Page Resources include many but not all of the additional resources from current classes. Others are listed but no longer included in revised lessons. Register at Virtual University for current classes. You can now get CEUs. The spring 1998 class is called Building Your Home on the Web (HTML for Beginners).
The winter 98 and spring 98 classes were revamped: Beginning HTML, Graphics and Web Page Design. Included are a new Lesson 4 on Getting Your Page to the Web, Lesson 5 Basic Buttons for your Web Page, and Lesson 6 Web Page Design. The new Lesson 2 covers color resources previously found in lesson 4 and making hyperlinks from lesson 3 and introduced information about HTML 4.0 and cascading style sheets on Inline Styles. The tables resources from the old Lesson 4 and sound resources from the old Lesson 6 are now combined in Lesson 3 along with graphics. Lesson 8 added mini topics on frames (in old lesson 4 and 6), accessibility, promoting your page, image maps, and additional resources. I re-ordered the resources to reflect the new lesson structure: current lesson (L-#) it is from instead of the old lesson. The fall 97 class was called HTML & Web Design 101.
