Workshop Presentation

HTML 5: An Overview and Demonstration of the Latest in Web Technology.

Kareem Dana
West Texas A&M University

This workshop will demonstrate many of the new features and capabilities of HTML5 including canvas, drag & drop, geolocation, and new multimedia elements. HTML5 is the fifth revision of the HTML standard and perhaps the most substantial. Even though it is still under development, it is supported by most web browsers and many websites make use of HTML5 features. Many of the HTML5 features that will be discussed and demonstrated in this workshop are what make web apps like Google's GMail, Google Docs, Facebook, and Amazon so rich and useful. In addition to demonstrating the state of the art in HTML, we hope this workshop will give the audience ideas and tips to incorporate elements of HTML5 into their curriculum as it is almost a requirement now in industry for websites (and mobile websites/apps) to make use of HTML5.

Targeted Attendees
Instructors/Professors within Information Systems that teach courses on HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc. or anyone with an interest in cutting edge web technologies or website development.
