What is your subject about? A brief overview
This subject provides an in-depth study of various internet technologies, from web applications to the
underlying communication technologies. The main emphasis is to combine technical concepts with a
high-level understanding of networks and the different protocol layers and communication media
used in the internet. The subject covers emerging internet technologies and explores topics in detail
such as network and data communication models. It further explores the concept of Internet of
Everything (IoE) by introducing the pillars of IoE and the idea of connecting the unconnected. It
discusses the design of web sites using programming languages such as Extensible HyperText
Markup Language (XHTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). The subject provides in-depth
information on how communication amongst different web applications occurs by discussing and
analysing different networking concepts along with the internet infrastructure. It discusses the next
generation Internet Protocol (IP) system for the Internet and explains IPv6. In the application layer, it
discusses the standard client-server protocols and Peer-to-Peer Paradigm.

How you are expected to engage with the subject

All of your subject materials are available on the Subject Interact2 site under the Topics link in the left
hand side menu. I suggest that for each topic you read the learning objectives carefully, read the
overview, follow the reading material in the text and then do the activity as suggested in the topic.
Once you have a feel for what the topic is about try and make a good set of notes for your reference.
The reading material and activities have been designed to help you complete assessment items
successfully.

In this subject there are many of opportunities for you to engage with me, with your peers and with the
subject. I will be holding 2 hours of lecture and a 1 hour tutorial every week throughout the session
where we can discuss content issues and assessment items.

Before you attend a class you need to have looked at the relevant topic in the Interact2 site and read
the text so that you can contribute to the class and derive more meaning from the activities that we will
do. We will spend class time working through the topic questions, discussing them and preparing
responses.

It is helpful to have a small task to complete early in the session so that you have a focus in the subject
from the very first day. This subject includes three topics (3, 4 & 5) related to Internet of Everything
(IoE) from the CISCO Network Academy course. You need to be enrolled in the CISCO Network
Academy to access these topics, so you are required to enrol by the end of the second week of session.
I will ask you to provide your working email account so your CISCO Network Academy account
details can be sent. Once you provide the email address, I will enrol you in the CISCO Network
Academy course. For topics 3 - 5, there is a practice quiz at the end of each topic that you need to
attempt once you finish the topic. Your first assessment item, online quiz, is based on these practice
quizzes. If you are not enrolled in the CISCO Network Academy by the end of the second week of
session, I may contact you by phone or email to have a chat about study and if there are any issues that
I can help you with.Don't forget I am here to help - so contact me if you have any questions or chat
with your peers on the discussion board.

Task

You may have a personal portfolio website for a number of reasons. If you’re a freelancer, then you’d
need one to showcase your work and allow people to contact you. For a student (or unemployed), the
portfolio can be used to show your work to prospective employers. If you’re part of a studio, then
you might use one to blog about your design life, show people what you’re doing and build your
online presence. Include all the skills you have achieved, the activities you are involved in, previous
experience, qualification and more about yourself.

A personal portfolio website is all about promoting you. You are a brand, and your name is a brand
name. No one is going to know about your brand unless you get it out there; and if you’re a Web
designer, developer, writer, gamer etc, then it’s essential that you have a good portfolio website.

Getting Web Server Account on CSU Web Servers

Do these steps early, if you have difficulties accessing the Web Server contact Student Central in the
first instance. If you can’t resolve problems quickly, contact your Subject Coordinator as soon as
possible.

1. Go to the web site http://www.csu.edu.au/webpublishing/personal.htm
2. Go to “Students? Your personal publishing information is "here” link and follow the
instruction to get the web server account and how to publish your information.
3. Keep in mind that the CSU web server allows a maximum size of data files up to 20MB. So
your data files should be within this limit.
4. At the completion of registration process, you should have a webpage address similar to
http://csusap.csu.edu.au/~username (where username is your actual username) It will NOT
be active until you place some files on the server.

Then complete the following:

1. Create a new HTML5 file named index.htm and save it in a folder with your Data Files.
2. Add the appropriate doctype for HTML5 to the beginning of the file.
3. Add a comment to the document head describing the document’s content and containing
your name and the date.
4. Add an appropriate page title to the document head.
5. Set the character set of the file to UTF-8.
6. Include at least one example of each of the following:
1. structural elements such as the header, footer, section and aside elements
2. grouping elements including a heading and a paragraph
3. a text-level element
4. an inline image
5. a character entity reference or a character encoding number
6. ordered or unordered list
7. include an Internal Style Sheet which provides at least 2 type selectors and
a universal selector
7. Validate the web page(s) you have created using https://validator.w3.org (there should be no
errors for HTML5)
8. Structure your HTML5 code so that it’s easy for others to read and understand.
9. Save your changes to the file, and then open it in your Web browser to verify that is
readable.

Charles Sturt University Subject Outline
ITC560 201730 SM I-14 January 2017-Version 1 Page 10 of 16
10. Upload your files to the web server account you have created on CSU web server. Verify
that the web page you have created is linked to your own homepage e.g.
http://csusap.csu.edu.au/~student
11. Submit a document containing the full URL of your homepage through Turnitin (PDF or
Word document, NOT both). You do not need to submit your other files. Note that the files
are date stamped on the server so should not be modified after submission, otherwise a late
penalty will be applied.

This website must be unique (not part of a previous submission or exist elsewhere on the Internet),
and it must be hand coded. The use of Dreamweaver or other Web page creation software will not be
accepted and will result in zero marks being awarded to this assessment item.

Rationale

This assessment covers the following learning objective:

be able to apply basic knowledge of creation of web pages using HTML5 and CSS.

Assessment Information
Learning materials
Details of learning materials that support your success in this subject can be found in the
Interact2 Subject Site.

Referencing
Referencing is an important component of academic work. All assessment tasks should be
appropriately referenced. The specific details of the referencing requirements are included in
each assessment task description. Get referencing style guides and help
(http://student.csu.edu.au/library/integrity/referencing-at-csu) to use for your assessments.

Plagiarism
CSU treats plagiarism seriously. We may use Turnitin to check your submitted work for plagiarism.
You can use Turnitin to check for plagiarism
(http://student.csu.edu.au/library/integrity/referencing-at-csu/checking) in your assessments before
submission.

How to apply for special consideration
Academic regulations provide for special consideration to be given if you suffer misadventure or
extenuating circumstances during the session (including the examination period) which prevents
you from meeting acceptable standards or deadlines. Find the form on the Student Portal Special
Consideration, Misadventure, Advice and Appeals (http://student.csu.edu.au/study/academic-advice)
page.

Extensions
In order to ensure that students who hand their assignments in on time are not disadvantaged, and to
enable the lecturer to comply with the requirement to return assignments to the class within 21
days, the following rules about extensions will be strictly enforced:

1. Extensions cannot be granted for online tests, as these have to be done within a specific time
frame, after which the answers are released to the class automatically.

Charles Sturt University Subject Outline
ITC560 201730 SM I-14 January 2017-Version 1 Page 13 of 16
2. Computer problems and normal work-related pressures and family commitments do not
constitute sufficient reasons for the granting of extensions.

3. If it becomes obvious that you are not going to be able to submit an assignment on time
because of an unavoidable problem, you must submit your request for an extension to the
Subject Coordinator in writing (email or post) prior to the due date.

Requests for extensions will not be granted on or after the due date so you must make sure
that any extension is requested prior to the day on which the assignment is due.

You are expected to do all you can to meet assignment deadlines. Work and family related
pressures do not normally constitute sufficient reasons for the granting of extensions or
incomplete grades.

4. If you apply for an extension, you may be asked to email your lecturer on what you
have done so far on the assignment.

5. You must be able to provide documentary evidence (such as a certificate from a doctor or
counsellor) justifying the need for an extension as soon as practicable - but please note that if
the circumstances giving rise to the request for an extension arise on a day when you cannot
get documentary evidence, you must still apply for the extension before the due date and
submit the documentary evidence afterwards.

6. Given the tight deadlines involved in returning assignments to students and putting feedback
on Interact, the maximum extension granted generally will be seven (7) days from the
due date.

7. Assignments received more than 10 days after the due date or extension date will not be
marked unless the staff member decides otherwise. Items received late will be penalised at
10% of the mark available for the assessment item per day it is late (see below).

8. Note that for purposes of measuring lateness, the 'day' begins just after 00.00 hrs AEST - so
an assignment received after midnight of the due date will be penalised 10% for lateness.
This rule will be applied to all students uniformly.

Penalties for Late Submission
The penalty for late submission of an assessment task (without obtaining the Subject
Coordinator's approval for an extension) will be:

10% deduction per day, including weekends, of the maximum marks allocated for the assessment
task, i.e. 1 day late 10% deduction, or 2 days late 20% deduction.

An example of the calculation would be:

Maximum marks allocated = 20
Penalty for one day late = 2 marks (so, a score of 18/20 becomes 16/20 and a score of 12/20
becomes 10/20).

If an assignment is due on a Friday but is not submitted until the following Tuesday, then the penalty
will be four days (40% deduction or 8 marks in the example above).

Submissions more than 10 days late will be acknowledged as received but will not be marked.

Resubmission
Under normal circumstances resubmission of assessment items will not be accepted for any of
the assessments required in this subject.

Online Submission
Assignments should be submitted through TurnItIn. Please meet with your respective lecturer to enroll
in the Turnitin (If you do not receive any email from Turnitin).

Assessments such as Blogs, Quizzes and Journals are required to submit in the Interact2.

TurnItIn does not accept Excel files and PDF files.

Assignment/s must be submitted through Turnitin by midnight (AEST) according to the date
mentioned in the subject outline.

Postal Submission
Under normal circumstances postal submissions will not be accepted for any of the
assessments required.

Hand Delivered Submission
Under normal circumstances hand delivered submissions will not be accepted for any of the
assessments required.

Feedback
Feedback for assessment items will be provided by subject lecturer/s.

Assignment Return
You should normally expect your marked assignment to be returned to you within 15 working days
of the due date, if your assignment was submitted on time. If you submitted your assignment on time
but have not returned by the return date, you should make enquiries in the first instance to the
subject lecturer. If the subject lecturer is not available, contact Level 1, Reception.

Student Feedback and Learning Analytics
Evaluation of Subjects
CSU values constructive feedback and relies on high response rates to Subject Experience Surveys
(SES) to enhance teaching. Responses are fed back anonymously to Subject Coordinators and
Heads of Schools to form the basis for subject enhancement and recognition of excellence in
teaching. Schools report on their evaluation data; highlighting good practice and documenting how
problems have been addressed. You can view a summary of survey results via the Student Portal
SES Results (https://student.csu.edu.au/study/subject-experience-survey-results) page.

We strongly encourage you to complete your online Subject Experience Surveys. You will be
provided with links to your surveys via email when they open three [3] weeks before the end of
session.
