Abstract

Although many instructors now utilize the Web to supplement their courses, the Web pages they create are mostly "static" in nature. These HTML documents are written and then posted onto the Web server, where they sit until requested by a browser. Materials on these documents are outdated overtime until the Web developer revises them one page at a time, which requires considerable time and effort, especially as Web pages multiply. In the long run, a better strategy to maintain a Web site is to use "dynamic" pages linked to databases. These Web pages are "dynamic" in the sense that they are created "on the fly." They don't exist until a browser makes the request. Upon the information user's request, the database inserts the requested information into preformatted HTML templates. If the information in the database is updated, the Web page will display the new information the next time it is requested by the user. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of how educational Web sites can be more easily administered, modified, and customized by using Web-database connectivity.
