Making web sitStudents working on Macintosh computers in the Computer Centeres is a rewarding experience for both students and educators. It is similar to publishing a book, though the results are instant and you don't have a publisher breathing down your neck saying your work isn't good enough. Some of our student web sites receive thousands of visitors per week from over a hundred countries around the world. Many of them also receive e-mail letters every day congratulating them on their success and encouraging them to do more. Basically, anyone can publish on the internet after learning a few basic skills. So can you! After receiving numerous inquiries about how to make web sites, we decided to put a section together where we could share with people some of our knowledge. What you will find on this page are links to basic lessons for web site making together with resources for webmasters. We have also included some of the ways we use internet at school.

MAKING WEB SITES
INTRODUCTION: We started publishing on the internet back in 1997. Read about our early experiences and the extent of our project today.
STEP 1: HTML We use a number of different programs to make web sites.
STEP 2: Graphic Programs. These are the programs we use to make banners, animated graphics and to make our pictures look better.
STEP 3: Web Hosting. In order for other people to see your web site you need to put your pages onto a server which is accessible 24 hours a day.
STEP 4: FTP Programs. Once you have made a web site, you next need to upload them onto the internet.
STEP 5: Domain Name. This is the address people use to find you on the internet. Choosing a name which is easy to spell and remember is very important.
STEP 6: Promoting. Thinking, if you build it they will come isn't true. Learn about ways to promote your web site on the internet.
EXAMPLES: Probably the best way to learn is to take a look at what students are capable of doing.
