Website Development Workshop

This workshop had some ambitious goals from the first day. Only two of the 10 participants had previously authored a webpage by hand (that is without a visual editor such as Frontpage or Dreamweaver).

Most had never authored a webpage at all. They also had very little previous graphics creation experience!

And we were going to produce a miniwebsite with original graphics, animation, rollover buttons, and scanned or digital photography images, spread over four pages!

As the instructor, I come from the old school of web authoring- true webmasters need to know at least a little about markup language. So that is where we began.

After making a practice page, we began planning a small website using a concept map. We then began working on the color scheme, logo and finally the navigational graphics.

I was very proud of the products that the participants produced within 30 hours of workshop instruction and practice. Everyone worked very hard and can be proud of their first efforts!

Project Description

Workshop Participant

I am the newspaper sponsor at my school, and I was interested in how web pages were created. I also wanted to learn how to create elaborate web graphics.

This knowledge will help me in my English classes to create webpages to enhance subjects such as the novel: The Scarlet Letter. I developed this website to explain the Puritan society so my students would have a better understanding of that novel.

I think that a "Virtual Media Center Website" was needed "yesterday" to support our wireless laptop population of tomorrow

Using Dreamweaver to keep a data-rich website elegant with an easily understood navigational structure will be a big advantage as I realize my vision of the "Virtual Media Center".

As Tech Specialist at Cocoa Beach Junior Senior High, I wanted to learn how to manipulate graphics and build the framework of our school website.

The knowledge and skills learned here will be invaluable for what I intend to use on our site.
