 Javascript Tutorial 10: Show and Hide Logical Divisions with Javascript, CSS and HTML | File Type: video/quicktime | Duration: 0:08:25

With just a little Javascript knowledge you can create a sliding div effect that is commonly seen on the web. In this video tutorial, Mark will show you how to create a sliding div within the browser. The sliding div reveals it’s content as the div opens and completely disappears once the div is closed.

 Javascript Tutorial 9: Simple Ajax Example | File Type: video/quicktime | Duration: 0:00:01

Ajax is an important technology that is behind the front end of many of today’s web sites. Ajax technology, which is coded in Javascript, allows your page to communicate with the server behind the scenes. This behind the scenes communication allows web pages to be updated without refreshing the entire page. Ajax leads to a more seamless, desktop like experience for users.

 Javascript Tutorial 8: getElementById() | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:10:26

The Javascript getElementById method is, perhaps, one of the most important methods in the language. It allows you to access in HTML element that has an id attribute and value. Once you access the element you can manipulate its stylesheet, read its content, or change its internal HTML. In this tutorial Mark demonstrates the Javascript getElementById method and explains how you can use it most effectively.

 Javascript Video Tutorial 7: Functions | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:09:47

Functions allow you to create a piece of code and execute at any point during the execution of the program. This video discusses functions, function calls, passing arguments to a function, returning values from a function, and the scope of variables within a function.

 Javascript Video Tutorial 6: The String Object | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:11:28

String and the string object allow you to work with text in Javascript. This video introduces creating strings and using the string object. The string.length property is demonstrated as well as several important methods you can use with Strings.

 Javascript Video Tutorial 5: Arrays | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:12:51

Arrays are important objects in all programming languages. The concept of arrays in Javascript allows you to store several values in a single variable. For example, you could store an entire list of names, or an entire list of GPA's in a single array. This tutorial will show you several methods for declaring an array. You will also learn how to modify the values stored in an array. Additionally, to methods of extracting array values with loops will be discussed.

 Javascript Video Tutorials 4: Loops | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:08:37

 Javascript Video Tutorials 3: Branching and Conditionals | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:13:52

In this segment of the Javascript Tutorial we’ll look at conditionals– namely the “if” statement. The if statement is used for a program to make a decision based on some logical test. For example “if” the player’s score is higher than the high score, than the players score is the new high score. Each if statement is paired with an expression which evaluates to true or false and the if code block as associated else blocks are– or are not– executed. It’s easy!

In this second tutorial on the Javascript language we’ll take a close look at variables. Variables are a central concept in all programming languages. This tutorial covers declaring variables, initializing variables, combined declaration and initialization of variables, the assignment operator, concatenation operator, mathematical operators and string verus number variables.

 Javascript Video Tutorials 1: Hello World | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:09:21

Javascript is growing in use and importance. Learning Javascript is critical for most web, software and eLearning developers. This lesson is a gentle introduction to Javascript.
