Web Design Unit

Hey ECS students,

Sorry guys-the HTML we will be learning is

I've put together some great links for you to begin exploring how HTML codes/tags are the basic building blocks of all websites.

Please have a look at the following links and start thinking about how you would like your own student home page website to look and how you would like it to work.

A good way to begin planning your own website is to sketch-out the design on paper and then go through some of the problem solving techniques we have discussed earlier in identifying how to build features into your design using the HTML coding commands.

Also, see this site to get an idea how much it might cost to have a website built:

Hey CNMT Exploring Computer Science Students,
The First and Best Lesson You'll Learn this Year! How to write for the web!

As we we find ourselves gearing to return from Winter-Break, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of a couple of things. We will now be learning how to build our very own "cnmt student profile"-inspired websites. Of course this means all ECS students will have to "STEPITUP" BIGTIME!

As we return from break I be will updating this blog to keep in touch with you all, and I will also require some over the break participation in preparing and planning and writing on your part.


All the text on your personal-websites will need to be original, well written copy for your websites.
You will need to produce an introduction to you site, as well as the necessary writing to accompany your autobiography page, your interests & hobbies page and your chosen career path page.

Start thinking about what content or "stuff" you are going to want to feature on you websites.
Please begin your written content by drafting short paragraphs 3-4 per page, so that when your return on Monday January 10th, we can discuss how to edit and improve your writing for your pages.

To start I would like you all to visit and read the following blog:

A Writer's Guide to Web Building
