CREATING YOUR FIRST HOMEPAGE
You are now ready to create your very first "homepage" using the skills learned in Dreamweaver.
I. You will need to create a folder on the Rice Lab's server. This is VERY important since all files on the desktop will be deleted when the machines are shut down. Open my computer, or Windows Explorer and navigate to the U drive and open the girltech (samba) folder. Right click to create a new folder and rename it whatever your girltech user name is. (ie. sboone).
II. You have a homepage that
has been created for you. Find this page under the 2002
participant's list. Click on your name and you will discover a VERY
BASIC template. It does have a few very good points. There is a proper
e-mail link, and the credits that should be on each page are found at
the bottom of the page. Follow these steps to personalize your homepage.
E-mail your index.htm and your
image file to yourself. This must be done the last ten minutes of class.
If you do not have Dreamweaver on your home machine, you should load the 30 day trial version included on the CD in your TeacherTECH notebook.
You should have some sort of simple word processor on your computer (notepad or wordpad). I do not recommend that Word be used.
Check your mail and open that attachments your sent yourself in class. Complete your homepage page for homework and e-mail all files associated with this page to YOURSELF, so they will be available for use in class tomorrow. Be sure to attach all image files you used.
