HTML or XHTML and CSS

Posted in Uncategorized on December 9, 2008 by sagustine

That’s the reason I am going back to school again.  I took some online a while ago using simple HTML. It worked in the class, but then when I agree to working on a community project, turned out that I have no clue about it at all. I guest you could say the same about xhtml.  In most articles and sites I read that convinces that XHTML really only offers two major advantages — to a document author — which aren’t available in HTML: the ability to mix in content from other markup languages more or less seamlessly (via XMLnamespaces), and the ability to use standard XML tools to work with your documents. Anne’s websblog stated that Xhtml is more suitable for the web. In the Anne’s weblogs also mentioned that what is most clear to most people that HTML consisted “of superfluous TABLE and FONT elements and that for XHTML you needed to use CSS which can be cached and therefore saves bandwidth”.  However, the articles at Lachy’s web blog stated that XHTML is not for beginner. I kind of agree with that, for being very little understand what is HTML, XHTML is a blank canvas for me.  There is blog by Robert Nyman offers good articles regarding this subject which sugested that choosing HTML or XHTML is depending what you needs and what you want to accomplish. I think I won’t fully understand until I am really is trying to understands both HTML and XHTML and fully put them into practice.

As for CSS, as what I found in my reading is, I understand that CSS gives more control over the appearance of a Web page to the page creator than to the browser designer or the viewer. Basicly this is the advance of HTML which have advntage like:   Separation of content ,design and efficient control over large document sets, and CSS supports more formatting option than plain HTML tags.The most powerful implementaions of CSS will allow site designers to control the graphics and of thousands of pages by modifying a single master style sheet document.  I think when I relate to this I have to say just like you have a master page in layout program like adobe in design or Quark X-press.

Web 2.0 in Education

Posted in IMD Fundamentals, Uncategorized on October 9, 2008 by sagustine

What is actually Web 2.0 is? Well I heard about it but I was’n sure what it is. I thought it was another version of operating system to use to create a website. I am close, I am almost got it right.

What my understand from my first day of IMD Fundamentals class about this Web 2.0 is the next generation of technology tools and solutions where interactive content is the norm. It’s mean this is different meaning for every organizations or individual based on what their purpose, who their audience and what they want to accomplish.

According to Alexandra Krasne that Web 2.0 is an important tools for non-profit organization. It can help them be heard, and allows the non-profit supporters to build movements for social, environmental, economic, and political change.

Derek’s Blog have the same concern of my own concern about teacher and education in general. This Web 2.0 tools could be one of the solutions to increase the quality of education. It could help the teacher to connect with others educator to social networking, share teaching tips or other skills, resources, or just chat to relieve each other loads. For Students, this is the perfect media. Most kids like internet and other interactive media. I know my daughter more exciting study through the computer and other interactive media, and I am sure other children/students out there, which almost all of them are growing up on the web, are exciting and less boring as my daughter when the studying with through interactive media rather than traditionally taught.

So, web 2.0 is not only a platform just for developer like google, myspace and others. But its a web platform build virtually for everyone. As according to Andy that Web 2.0 is a state of mind which are providing a service, encourage user to contribute and collaborate, make it easy to use, and create community sense belonging.

Wow, now I get it, and I can say that “I know that myspace and facebook are using web 2.0”. And this is also proofs that not only female who likes chat and talk. Male also talk and chat, and sometimes too much. Hah!!!
