Creating a Web Page

Tip Sheet No .21

1. Send in your application for a web page as soon as possible.

2. Develop the skills in Windows and Netscape you will need before you start.

3. Browse through others’ web pages to get good ideas for yours. Don’t reinvent the wheel.

4. Web Documents are publications and designing them should be approached in this manner.

5. Use lots of white space for readability and visual appeal. (Favor lists and tables).

6. To move information from one program to another in Windows machines: Cut or Copy material from the first program, Press CTRL plus Escape for the “Switch To” box and select the other program, then Paste your material into the new program.


Teaching with or about Information from Web Pages

1. You may need to teach students how to “surf”-- it’s very likely they will need this information in future jobs/careers.

2. Have students bring you relevant websites for course credit. You can use those web sites on your class web page.

3. Give students an assignment to survey 2 web sites and compare and contrast them.

4. Have students create a web page as a writing assignment. It requires the same basic steps as a traditional paper.

5. Look at other instructors’ syllabi and exams for help with planning your own course. Look at the World Lecture Hall Web site--
