If you have personal images that you wish to use for the assignment, be sure that you cite them correctly according to APA guidelines.

All of the images that you use should be cited in the Sources document that accompanies this assignment.

IMPORTANT! Make sure that the version of each image that you use for the slideshow is less than 500K. Ten images at 500K is 5 MB, and adding the document should total no more than 7 MB.

Part B: Research Slideshow Code

Do some research on the Web to find code that will let you take your photos and build a slideshow on a page. Try to find code that is CSS based and doesn’t require a lot of JavaScript.

One example is  

Part C: Build Page and Document Sources

Create the slideshow according to your selected research, using the images that you located in step 1.

The slideshow should run automatically and should contain a text-based title for each slide.

Write a description of the process that the slideshow uses to cycle through the slides and cite the source of your code.

Part D: Complete the Lab Report

Download the CIS363 Lab Report document from Doc Sharing.

The lab report must be completed for all labs. The key parts of the report include the following.

Objectives: A one-paragraph explanation of the purpose of the lab.

Results: Include a screenshot of the working website or page.

Conclusions: A one-paragraph explanation of what you learned while completing the lab, any challenges you had to work through, and how you can use what you learned going forward. 

Submit Deliverables

Copy files from the Citrix server (if necessary).

Zip all of the files from Parts A, B, and C into a single zip file.

Submit your zip file to the Dropbox.









Based on the site, page layout, and navigation developed in prior steps, begin to add content to your site. Include appropriate typography, colors, and imagery as per the lecture and iLab assignments. Begin to implement the box model through the use of <div> tags and absolute positioning.
