Policy on lecture course material pages
|Computer Laboratory > Policy on lecture course material pages|
With the proliferation of lecturers who wish to place material on the web, the Laboratory has decided to rationalise location and management of individual course web pages.
Each year a new set of directories is created to ensure that
outdated material is not left in the main student access path. Each
course now has its own directory, which this year can be found at:
A template file, index.tmpl, has been placed in the
directory, containing basic information about the course. The main index file, index.html, is derived from the template file. A principal
lecturer has been assigned for each course. This person is the owner
of the directory and of all the files in it and is responsible for
the content of the directory. He or she is encouraged to add
appropriate files to the directory and to modify index.tmpl
so that students can access these files. To recreate the index.html file from the index.tmpl file, run the UNIX command:
Information on writing HTML is available.
