Got here at 7:58…call it 8AM…only 30 min lunch so I will leave at 4:30PM. Lunch with the other iismes. 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.

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 www.sjteach.org/tutor6.html

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. http://sjteach.org/SS6_Tutorial_6_1.html
