I have seen a few other threads on this topic, but they do not seem to be asking what I wan to ask. Firstly, no this is no homework / class project. It is something that I am doing in my free time.
I impart a training session which lasts two hours and uses powerpoint completely. At the end of the training session, trainees have to pass an exam to be certified. I would like very much that the slides of the presentation be put up online such that a trainee can view them and at the end of it he/she may take the online exam. What I want to achieve is
1) A user should be able to create a username which can be his email and the email can be verified by sending him an email with a link for verification.
2) Once verified the user should be able to view the slides of the training presentation.
3) Following the presentation the user will be presented 10 questions based on the material just viewed (the questions can be stored in a database and 10 questions can be displayed at random) as part of the test.
So here is the real question - I am a programmer, but a systems programmer who survives by tinkering with compilers, assemblers and linker; I know squat about web programming. So can somebody, given my requirements, tell me what technology / programming language will I need to learn in order to achieve the 3 reqmnts above. If so can you point me to your favourite learning resource ? I do not want to be spoonfed, as much as be pointed in the right direction about what I'll need to know.
Thanks in advance and apologies for this long post.
