Spring `96 Projects
These group projects are developed over the course of the semester.
The groups are self-selected and consist of between one to four students
to create and develop a unique Web resource of
some form of their own choosing within the
assigned criteria and deadlines.
Group projects are intended to provide an opportunity to explore areas
and aspects of the Web of particular interest or value to the students,
and to channel their creativity and enthusiasm toward a productive and
rewarding goal. Group members can complement each other's strengths
toward a common end, learning from each other and how to work as part of
a Web development team. Also, having developed a project of significance
will provide demonstrable skills and experience for students who will
seek opportunities in professional Web development, and perhaps even
allow them to make a names for themselves on the Web.

- Ashton Center
Residence Life Department Web Site
- Troy Tricker
Design a web site for the Residence Life Department in Ashton Center.
Pages will include staff, resident, building and program listings,
duty calendar, community council, etc.
- Boy Scout
Troop 170 Web Site
- Louise O'Connor
My proposed project will build a Web page for Boy Scout Troop 170 in
Bloomington, IN. This page will disseminate and retrieve information
concerning troop activities and functions. It will include such
information as newsletters, upcoming trips, calendar of events,
merit badge information and a want-ad listing. Scouts can submit
comments through email and suggestions made on feedback forms.
This page will also link up to other relevant Scout Web pages.
- Catalog of
Indiana University Motor Pool Fleet
- Patrick Hastings
Working alone, I would create a catalog of vehicles available
for rental by the Indiana University Motor Pool, and add it to
the existing home page. It would include pages that would contain
a color image of each type of vehicle, as well as a discription.
It would also contain a CGI application that would estimate the cost
of a planned rental.
- Jiayu Boa
Build a web site that will provide information and services for
those people who have an interest in China, including imagemaps of
major Chinese cities, links to Chinese newspapers, Universities,
newsgroups and other Chinese resources.
- Lucy Snyder
This one-person project will be an illustrated educational site that
gives people an overview of the natural history and pharmacology of
5-7 plants (such as the mayapple) which produce natural substances
that are used in chemotherapy. Each entry will include a photo or
illustration of the plant itself, a three-dimensional rendering
(in Kinemage format if I can't manage a version in Java) of its
pharamcologically active biomolecule, and graphics that illustrate
the drugs' physiological activity. I also intend to put in a short,
automatically-graded quiz so that people can use the pages as an

A site which informs and entertains the user about the American
governmental process with an overview of government as a whole,
an overview of the electoral process, pop quizzes, image maps and

Geoff Harmon, Brian Koehler
The Web site/application created by our group will be a place where
IU students can post information about themselves in a standard
format, to assist in locating other students who share similar
interests. The information, voluntarily posted by individuals, will
be categorized to provide easy searching methods and a standard user
interface. Although we anticipate that a large part of its usage will
come from students looking for dates, we hope that people will take
advantage of the space to meet new friends, to form clubs or bands,
or to participate in any other activity which brings people together.
Individualized Major Program Web Site
- Daniel McDeavitt,
An authorized web site for the Individualized Major Department
at Indiana University, offering information and services for IMP
Faculty, Staff, accepted and prospective Students, as well as the
- Jeff Smith
The proposed project will be a website that provides information
that some might find useful and some might find useless, but
none the less entertaining. The site, to be called "Insomnia"
will be an on line database of 24 hour restaurants throughout
the United States. The site will take into account many aspects
of the course. CGI scripts will be implemented for users to add
additional information to the database. CGI will also be used for
me to administrate the site, as well as to check all of the users
input and only add valuable information.
- IU Dance Marathon
- Shawn Hanna
My project is to Build a home page for the IU Dance Marathon.
It will be useful to sign people up for the marathon and to get
fundraising reports from the fundraising groups.
Locker Combination Lookup for SRSC
- Randy Streator
The project involves a service for SRSC members that have a locker at
the facility. These members will be able to go to the Recreational
Sports' homepage and be able to lookup their particular locker
combinations. The member will be asked to input their name and
some other information to check against known data to verify the
person is who they say they are. One possible solution to verifying
the person is to link into the university server and to verify the
person's network password.
Resource Systems Database Gateway
- Julie England
The project will involve creating a web form interface that will
allow access to a set of data collected during 1986 to 1990 at a
research institution at Indiana University. The data is stored in a
complex relational database which will be simplified and converted
to a usable format for the web interface. This will also include
formating and display of historical and background materials from
the database project.
- Pink Floyd
- Chris Pavicich
The primary goal for my semester project is to provide an archive
of lyrics, photos, and audio clips of the music of Pink Floyd.
The site is intended for entertainmnet purposes only.
Therapists of Indiana, Inc. Web Site
- Ken Stumpf,
The purpose of this project is to develop a web presence for the
professional organization, Recreation Therapists of Indiana (RTI),
Incorporated. This group is a non-profit organization with it's
primary offices in Indianapolis, and with members throughout the
state. RTI is recognized as a chapter of the American Therapeutic
Recreation Association (ATRA).
Calendar for Residence Hall Computer Assistants
- David Ehle
This appointment system will provide a more efficient system for
addressing the Networking needs of students in the residence halls.
It will include a menu system for determining the appropriate
Assistant, and provide a schedule of their available hours. The system
will then allow for the student to schedule an appointment.
Sociology Dept Web Site Enhancement
- Sarah Holmes
For this project, I propose to extend the services of an existing
departmental web site. There are three major areas that need
attention. 1) Convert an in-house, 100+ page computer guide to
HTML format. 2) Generate documentation in the form of outlines,
maps, procedures and tools for the site, which already contains over
150 subdocments. 3) Provide interactive services for the faculty
and students that will, hopefully, produce a site that can be not
only interesting, but useful.
Theatre Design Visualization Site
- David Gulbransen
The TDVS is designed to be a resource for Theatre Design processes
and new imaging technology. The Site will progress in two stages
of development: and informational stage and production stage.
The informational stage will consist of a database of Internet
resources centered around Theatre design and design processes. The
bulk of the site would consist of listings of Web sites, newsgroups,
and mailing lists concerned with Theatre production arts and design.
Stage two would consist of an interactive design workshop, consisting
of means for production crew conferencing, and design interaction.

Using Java to write a 2 player interactive Tic Tac Toe game. The two
players will play against each other over the Internet using two
browsers. With possible enhancment for the game to be a 3-D Tic
Used Computer Clearinghouse
- Jeff Cook, Andrew Granger,
Zac Bir, James Ison
The purpose of our project is to set up a web site which contains
automated CGI scripts for placing an ad, and managing files.
The inital pages will contain a list of "ads" containing a username
and byline. When a link is clicked on you will be taken to page
posted by the seller which gives all of the pertinent information.
Users will also be able to place an "ad" by filling in a form.
Once that "ad" is placed a date will be set to it. and in 30 days
from that date the ad and it's link on the links page will be removed.
Virtual Bars of Bloomington
- Andy Stone, Tadas Paegle,
Tom Hanselman, Kerry Bodine
For our project, we plan on doing virtual bars of Bloomington.
We would like to have an overhead view of Bloomington that we could
turn into a virtual world in which the user can click on a bar and he
or she is transported to that bar and its corresponding virtual world.
- Adrian Hosey
Webhack is a fantasy adventure game in the tradition of Wizardry
and The Bard's Tale. The player takes on an alter ego of a fantasy
adventurer and enters a maze on a quest. He must find his way
through the maze and must overcome the monsters and other "bad guys"
West Bengal/Calcutta Web Site
- Mousumi Duttaray,
For the last few months we have been organizing, collecting and
designing materials on our native state of West Bengal in India and
especially on the city of Calcutta. The richness of the information
that we already collected is notable including the imagemaps and
the pictures. Other text based information are also quiet extensive.
- Jon Alan Hall
Westminster is a collection of documents from the branch of Christian
theology known as Reformed Theology. The purpose of this project is
to provide information about and to aid in the instruction of the
beliefs of the Reformed faith. Future additions will include the
King James Version of the Bible, John Calvin's Institutes of the
Christian Religion, and a quiz generating script. If possible,
this project will be modified to run locally (for those who do not
have Internet access) on a Macintosh using a web browser and MacPerl.
