I've read that Applets are deprecated, but it seems that people still develop Applets and they still teach Applets at the local technical college where I live.
Is it that just some methods for developing Apples are deprecated?
Also, do Applets run on the client-side so you have to have Java installed and enabled in the browser for an Applet to work.
I have heard that the Apple iPod Touch does not have Java on the client-side. So this means that Applets won't work on the iPod Touch, right. (I suppose that Applets won't work on the Apple iPhone either. Is that true?

No, applets are not deprecated. I think they have gone out of fashion because of competition from Flash, but they are still regarded as mainstream Java.
