I would like to see concrete learning objectives for each lesson (c.f. Bloom's taxonomy): What will the learner be able to do when they have finished the lesson? ("Knowing" something is not doing.)

Learners probably come to this material wanting to learn how to make a website. It would be good to explicitly address that earlier on. They may not understand why they need all this history and theory up front. For example, "How does the Internet work?" could be "You need a hosting provider and here's why". They ultimately do need to know how to plan a website, but they may want to get their feet wet with by writing a simple HTML page first. I think taking more of a "Bauhaus" approach, with practice and theory more closely integrated, would help keep learners engaged.
