LIS-5362 - Design and Production of Networked Multimedia

Welcome to the Course!

This front page - in Canvas - is the primary source of material for this course; everything you need for the course will be available here. Many links go through (including a mirror of this page for backup and emergency purposes); feel free to browse that as well.

The live portion of the course will be administered in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra: Here is the link:

Contacting me should only be done through regular email, at ( It is my informed opinion that "Canvas Conversations" should be avoided by all, standard email much better respects autonomy and privacy.)

Discord is an absolutely fantastic tool for grownups doing groupwork, and will be supported, but NOT required, for this class and all of my classes. Instructions and information on Discord here. Invite to discord forthcoming.

You don't need to do anything for the first day besides show up in Collaborate, link below. The syllabus is below, and schedules and procedures will be discussed in class on the first day. The following readings are recommended but not presently required. Nothing except your presence is required for the first day.

So basic, but a good place to start:


Good discussion of the "Is HTML a Language" thing.

Week 2 - Linux, Files, and Servers

File Transfer
(You don't NEED to read past "Using SSH with Github" — and even the key stuff might be a little obtuse, but we will go over it)

Text editing (solid, but not perfect rundown)

Week 1 - Intro to the Modern Web


Time permitting : A clever thing on CODE in general. Huge, but I've found it to be worth it.
