Seminar: 3rd Week
URL of our Class Page:
Raise this week's page on your computer in Netscape or Explorer.
Today's tasks: Create or transfer some content in(to) your home page and
use a "search engine":
- Recall your public_html subdirectory (cd public_html). Once there,
open an "empty" new file, call it "intro.html" and type: pico intro.html .
Type or "copy & paste" the following code at the top of this page:
<FONT FACE="Comic Sans MS" Color = "navy">
<CENTER><H2>My Introduction</H2> </CENTER>
Now either write two sentences about your background (whatever you feel
comfortable with) and separate this paragraph from the next by typing:
<P> [P stands for "paragraph" and will insert some extra space
between your two paragraphs]
Then write two short sentences about your academic and career plans
(again, only what you feel comfortable with).
Alternatively, you can "copy and paste" what you may already have
contributed on our "Discussion Page"
highlight your contribution, go to EDIT, then "copy", go to your open
"intro.html" file in dante and "paste" it into the right place.
Then, finish your newly created page by closing the code from the top of

Work in groups of 2 or 3 and use your (or partner's) favorite search
engine (or pick a search engine from this list. Identify, copy and share the

Please also indicate the name of the search engine you used and identify

- address the advantages or
- drawbacks/constraints of telecommuting or telework
- If you have time between now and
next Wednesday, you may want to return to your Web directory and your home
page file and practice your newly learned skills. Open your Dante account,
and type in "S" (Shell) at
your first menu. Then type "cd public_html", then: "pico index.html" (to
open your initial file), etc.
To close the file and get out of Dante: Type Ctrl X, "Yes", "Enter", then,
at the prompt, type: exit.
