Volunteer assignment:

HTML specialist


The main purpose of this appointment is to assist authors to make sure that their course material appears in HTML pages the way they had intended. Many PEOI's authors do not have sufficient knowledge of HTML to upload their text and graphics to PEOI's server.

Each HTML specialist will be teamed up with an author. The HTML specialist will receive email attachments that need to be inserted into the course under construction. The HTML specialist will use the "Edit HTML text" procedure located in the "Authors" section to insert the course material in the proper chapter and section. If there are images, graphs or audio files to be inserted, the "Upload image" and the "Upload audio" procedures are available. There are several other procedures in the "Authors" section that may need to be used as well.

The HTML specialist is also expected to assist in improving the functioning of the "Edit HTML text" procedure by reporting and working on any observed procedure deficiency. There may also be other projects to improve the appearance and functionality of PEOI's web site.

Additional explanations of PEOI course file structure can be found in the "Authors" section which explains the course files structure. Courses can be viewed in the "Courses" section.
