To Quote the almighty course guide:
This course aims to
- understand introductory technologies and practices relevant to the placing
of text and image within networked digital environments
- learn strategies for resolving technical questions and problems in digital and
- Learn writing and publishing basic HTML
- Learn about placing images online
So in regards to these learning outcomes and objectives of the course, the text relates on many levels to the Network Media course. What makes this text so applicable is the fact that it acts as a foundation for all online activity, outlining the very nature of Hypertext and how we interpret and perceive it. When looking at, “understanding introductory technologies and practices relevant to the placing of text and image within networked digital environments” the ideal of centrality in relation to Hypertext is incredibly important. When we place text and image within networked digital environments, the act of placing it suggests location within Hypertext. Through understanding the notion of a subjective and fluctuating center in Hypertext, the placing of images can be more strategically placed, and influential in the subjective view on centrality by the reader. Furthermore an understanding of the idea of a Hypertext’s centrality, in regards to, “learning writing and publishing in HTML”, will result in more effective published HTML websites.
