Web Applications for Everybody
Hello and welcome to my site where you can learn to build database-backed
web sites using PHP, MySQL, JQuery, and Handlebars.
You can use this web site many different ways:
You browse my videos and course materials under Lessons. The materials
I have developed
for this class are all provided with a Creative Commons license so you can download or link to
them to incorporate them into your own teaching if you like.
If you log in to this site
it is as if you have joined a free, global
open and online course. You have a grade book, autograded assignments, a discussion forum, and can earn
badges for your efforts.
If you want to use these Creative Commons Licensed materials
in your own classes you can download or link to the artifacts on this site,
export the course material as an
IMS Common Cartridge®, or apply for
an IMS Learning Tools Interoperability® (LTI®)
key and secret
to launch the autograders from your LMS.
The code for this site including the autograders, slides, and course content is all available on
GitHub. That means you could make your own
copy of the course site, publish it and remix it any way you like. Even more exciting, you could translate
the entire site (course) into your own language and publish it.
This site uses Tsugi
framework to embed a learning
management system into this site and handle the autograders.
If you are interested in collaborating
to build these kinds of sites for yourself, please see the
