Jackie, Good luck on your web page construction. I used Front Page because the State sponsors our teacher websites and that is what they use. The first time I wrote a web page, I mapped it out and did a layout ( hand drawn) of what I wanted each page to have on it. I looked at several other art teachers sites to see what I like for layout and content when I'm reading them. During the year I took pictures of student work and kept them on disks to use later for my web page. I also looked for backgrounds, clip art, animated gifs, etc.. and stored them on my computer. I took a class on web page design using page mill, then 2 years later took one using Front Page. I brought all my photos and saved backgrounds, act. that I wanted to use on my web page and my layout ideas with me to my class on web page design, so I created 3 pages in class. Judy also helped and sent me some pages from her website on a disk too. I used 2 of her pages and sent the disk to another art teacher. My advice is to start simple, add lat
er and revamp later. Good luck, it will be nice to share with another art teacher.
^ BUILD ME A WEB SITE ABOUT MY ART DEPARTMENT,
MY STUDENTS WORK, AND THE ART TEACHERS IN MY DEPARTMENT.... How do you begin thinking about laying it out? Are there other types of
software available that would benefit me more than composer. I know, so many questions....
