CS 100 - Computer Literacy, Spring 2006

MP 1 - Create your own home page

Due Date: Tuesday 2/14/2006 Wednesday 2/15/2006 at 11:59 pm

There are no constraints here: your network identity is in your own hands. Once you create your home page, the UIC will automatically make it available to the world. You are free to look as brilliant (or stupid) as you choose. Needless to say, however, you must steer clear of obscenity, slander, copyright violation, and the like. (See the ACCC Computer Usage Policy statement for more information).

Your page must contain the following (you may do more than this):

  1. a title (preferably your name)
  2. your name somewhere in the body of the page
  3. your e-mail address (write this with AT and DOT for @ and .)
  4. the time of your lab
  5. two paragraphs about yourself (where you're from, what you're interested in, etc.). Remember a paragraph is a collection of multiple sentences.
  6. a picture created by you (you can scan it in - there is a scanner in the ACCC computer lab in SSB 2300). A good idea is to put a picture of yourself on your homepage.
  7. another picture, grabbed from somewhere on the web, with a link to the page that you grabbed it from. Be sure to state the web site were you got this picture from, otherwise you could be accused of plagerism. These pictures should not be modified and do NOT grab copyrighted images. Royalty-free images can be obtained from web at http://www.freeimages.com/photos, http://www.freeimages.co.uk/ or http://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/image/
  8. a link back to the CS 100 home page.
  9. at least three additional links to other Web pages on the Internet reflecting your interests

Grading is straighforward. It will be out of a maximum of 100 points.

One or more misspelled words will also cost you five points. If your page is not accessible, you will receive zero (0) points for the assignment.

Project Submission

You are to make this page your home page on your Icarus account or available from a link on your Icarus account. If you don't want the assignments for CS 100 to be your UIC Home Page (i.e. in the file index.html), let us know. We can set up a different link on the Student Access Page.

You are also to submit your project electronically. This can be done by emailing your project to the CS 100 instructor account or by using the Unix turnin. Future assignments will require you to use turnin, so I suggest that everyone try to use turnin for this assignment also.
