Why not make your own page of links for them to go to. It only takes a
minute of copying and pasting and you don't even have to know HTML....
You may simply copy the lines below from <HTML> to </HTML> in your word
processor and add your own information. (Just be sure not to change
anything else or add extra spaces between the < and > symbols--html can be
very fussy sometimes!) Save it as an .htm or .html file. When you open this
file in your browser, your students will have the links ready for them to
use. Save it as is first, if you wish, then open it in your browser to see
what it does.
To make this a bit simpler without sending a lot of garbage along for some,
I typed what can be changed without any capitols. Anything in caps SHOULD
NOT BE CHANGED--unless, of course, you know what you're doing <g>
this is the first link for your page. type your url where indicated. the text to be blue and underlined goes between the A tags and the rest can continue here.
this is the second link for your page. type your url where indicated. the text to be blue and underlined goes between the A tags and the rest can continue here.
if you want your students to email their notes or report to you, use this tag: e-mail your report to me! ~~~~~~~ There's more to HTML than this, but you don't have to be afraid of it. And there are excellent tutorials available on the web. Here's an excellent one to get you started. Lots more good stuff on this site too. http://www.siec.k12.in.us/~west/online and another-- http://www.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/tut/index.html and here's links to more information http://www.siec.k12.in.us/~west/sites/tech.htm Hope this information will be useful.
