what track to do next for expanding on html forms

in the introduction is says that the form that we create 'will not actually submit anywhere because they requires additional server side code' just wondering which course i should talk after this one to learn how to take html forms one step further. For example lets say i wanted to create a student grading form input their grades then be about to print out a pdf format of a student report. what would be the best learning step for this process. any tips?

http://sourceforge.net/projects/php-gradebook/ there is already a project that does that. Just generate a report and print. Print as pdf with chrome browser. You don't have to reinvent the wheel.

Depending on your needs, PHP can also act as a direct bridge between the user's content generated from an html form and your email.
