Monday session : Question about the assignment

Task 2.6 states that video cameras are not the only source of video.
What does this mean?

You can produce a video in iPhoto by moving or zooming in a image.

Task 2.8 states to describe the organisatin/structure of the web site.
Does this mean a hierarchical tree diagram?

Yes, but with the right balance : you don't need everything

Task 2.9 states a navigational menu for all pages is needed in thesite. Does this refer to frames or organised links within the website?

I would prefer not to see frame, which bring bad Karma according to web usability rules.
The notion of the navigational menu are exposed here :
See Chapter 6 of the text book for more details

The idea is that all the pages should offer a similar set of tools (navigational and not)

W e have access to a video camera but do not have access to a firewire cable to transfer the video to the computer. Would it be possible to borrow one? and how would we go about doing this?

The package you can borrow from Pam contains the firewire cable. So use your video camera for more freedom, and borrow the package from Pam when you need to transfer your video.
If you were not there when I did the demonstration of the video, come on Monday and I'll do it ag


I want the header graphic of each page to be centre aligned. I've
called this up in a <div> but it doesn't align as intended.
Here's a sample of the code in the HTML:
<div class="pageheader" align="center">
<img src="images/home.jpg">
And in the CSS:
width: 800px;
position: relative;
top: 20px;
