This is a program for an introductory XML course. It is based on my course at Webster University, Geneva. This is not the official syllabus nor the official program. See the (closed) World classroom (Canvas).


We shall introduce roughly one topic per week. Also see the complete official syllabus for an overview.

Course level outcomes:

1.Create and validate XML documents
2.Use DTD, namespaces and schemas
3.Bind XML data with a browser (cancelled, since this old proprietary technology)
4.Become familiar with XML Editors
5.Format XML documents with CSS and XSLT
6.Apply the basics of XML DOM (only the principle, since I can't teach XML parsing in an 8-week COAP class)
