Intro HTML course for Reporters
Are you interested in learning about HTML and writing for the open web? Or, are you already comfortable with HTML and eager to share your skills with friends and colleagues?
We’re joining our friends over at Hacks/Hackers who did the hard work of getting together to offer a free, helpful class for reporters and other ONA members who want that reminder or kick-in-the-pants to get down some of the basics and beyond of one of the foundational languages of the open web.
Do you post your content to a content management system? Do you want to make small style edits to your blog? Do you have an online portfolio or want to learn how to make one? Or are you simply a trained journalist and feel a little shameful to not know even the basics of how words get written one way and displayed another online?
Well come on out to this shame free zone.
During the workshop, we’ll use and explain “hacktivity kits,” a kit for running learning events. We’ll use a kit designed especially for journalists and talk about hacking the kits to fit other learning objectives. We’ll go through some exercises and discuss tips and tactics for leading informal learning sessions as we conduct the workshop. Participants will leave with more familiarity with HTML and additional resources (and excitement!) for leading learning sessions.
This event is BYOL – Bring Your Own Laptop!
(Really, an actual laptop. If you don’t have one, folks can partner up, but tablets/mobile devices won’t work.)
