Web Page Creation

Creating a class or school web site is not complicated. What you need is a graphical HTML editor such as Adobe Page Mill or Microsoft Front Page. Either one can be obtained inexpensively via the board (if you work for the Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board) through educational pricing. You'll find that, when using either of the editors mentioned, an educationally effective web page can be mounted in no time at all. You don't really need all the bells and whistles - Java, JavaScript, ActiveX, etc, - seen on many web sites to develop a solid pedagogical model.

What you do need, however, is a firm grasp of why you are creating the page. To help you develop your objectives, you may wish to view these web sites created by teachers and/or students.
