Briefly met with Julie. She has flow charts to modify and she will
get them to me to refine eventually.

Big project deadline for Tansie and Julie due Friday, so I am going
to not bother them for the rest of the week.

I need to find out how to save and then send the completed
course, including the zip file with the graphics. For some reason, it
won’t attach though it did previously.

Worked on Web Course…Stephen suggested ways around attachment obstacle.

Late in the day, Julie brought me the flow charts to redo in VISIO.
I did the first one today. The other will wait until Monday.

R Curry/ETP Development Process

I developed web-based courses using the NSC Ready/Go program. For my

ETP, I have used my new-found skills to replicate a similar web course
development using Dreamweaver and Mozilla Composer.

Using web editors, such as MS Word (at NSC), Dreamweaver and Mozilla
Composer (on my own computers), I designed a template for the class
tutorials and started inserting content, links and questions.
See project, now online, at
Since I do not have access to any web editor other than MS Word at the
worksite, I will need to work on much of the ETP plan off site. Whatever I do
at NSC, ends up having to be redone later.

For the content, I am using chapter summaries from the district’s adopted
text programs.
The images are linked to their source on the web and can serve as catalysts
of interest for the students as they browse them.
