Hi, Howard. Over the past year I’ve worked with a lot of faculty and all but one were producing their courses using an LMS, Word, PDF, etc., as you describe. One lone faculty member was not; he was using a website building tool, but strictly in WYSIWYG mode – he didn’t have any understanding of the HTML or other code behind his site. It would make some aspects of my professional life easier if faculty were authoring HTML, but I’m not finding that many faculty have that knowledge, skill, or interest.

I’m interested to hear if others are observing different behaviors elsewhere.

Subject: [Athen] how many instructors are writing HTML for their courses?

Hello All:

I'm working on putting together a syllabus for a short MOOC on inclusive instruction. One question that came up is whether faculty are creating their own HTML pages and therefore, should this topic be covered. My sense is that almost all course content is being created through LMS, Word, PPT and PDF documents and video. But I thought I'd see if anyone had a different take on this. Are there still a significant amount of instructors writing their own web pages?
