CMIS170 is her second computer course attempted after her return to UMUC in
summer of 2011. Makeda works for Johns Hopkins at the Bayview campus and
wears many hats. She is responsible for two websites. While studying and learning
XML she not only was getting
closer to her goal of graduation but also reviewing technology and thinking about
ways XML might be used at work.

Makeda definitely would recommend this class to other students. Tiffany Johnson
her professor was patient, fair and kind. To date they learned how to write well-
formed XML documents, how to write documents using DTD and schemas. This
week the students are learning style sheets (XLST) for XML documents and current
uses for XML.

This final project is primarily based on the first two projects using DTD and XSD
nomenclatures. If time permits Makeda definitely would like to use an XLST as well
to make the final product more acceptable.

Bela would wish more people would get to know
classes offered at UMUC - online.This class was
definately worth taking and Professor Johnson has
taught very well all the aspect of XML. I learned
how to write XML Vocabulary and complimenting DTD
as well as Schema.Understanding of Namespace is
also covered.

Overall this class has been stepping stone of the
future classes.
