Online course materials (WWW) are advantageous in many ways. The courses are easily kept current. In Computing Information Systems it is critical to be learning relevant information in an ever changing field. Online course materials make it possible for courses to share materials. This method also allows those with a preference for print based materials to have hard copies. Should you choose to print all or parts of your course, we offer the following hints and suggestions.
Printing your WWW Course Pages from your Browser
To save and print page(s) you want in hard copy click on the pull down menu under "File". Under 'File' in the top menu bar of your browser, the pull-down menu will have three print-related options:
If your printer does not print the links, set the links' color to black in your browser's Preferences, "Colors", and then change them back to blue when done printing.
Layout and Ordering of Web Pages
Web pages are designed sequentially and logically. When printing course materials, print the Cover Page, (Table of Contents) and print linked pages in the order they occur on the screen.
Printing your WWW Course Pages using Copy and Paste and a Text Editor
A quick method to print the studyguide, and related materials, is to start at the first page of the Web materials, highlight all of the text, and then select "edit", and then "copy" from your browser's toolbar. Next open Notepad, and select "edit" and "paste" from the Notepad toolbar. Print this page, and then go back to the next page of the studyguide, and do the same thing. Continue this until you have printed off all of the pages you wish to.
