Webpage assignment

List of Student Webpages

Students in my seminar are required to provide course resources in the form of webpages. In the 'early days' this assignment included a 'pre-assignment' where students learned the technology of webauthoring by preparing a personal hompage. In recent semesters I have found that that assignment was not necessary as a majority of the students in the class already had personal webpages or had prepared websites for other classes.

Below are the directions for the original assignment. Directions for the later pages can be found as links from that semester's seminar homepage. The personal webpages should include links to sites on other, course related, topics.

Explanation and Guidelines for the PERSONAL HOMEPAGE

This assignment has two main goals. Through it completion you should:

The website you create must follow the guidelines listed below:

Site Content guidleines

Site Presentation guidelines The organization of your site is left to your descretion. To get started you may use this template.
