Celebrating the Life

Why should you create one?
Web pages are an excellent way to make information available to students long after you have taught a session. They allow you to:

  • Post handouts or information online that you would put on a handout.
  • Create online finding aids or pathfinders for a particular topic.
  • Provide a central place from which students can work on online activities during the session.
  • Provide links to other pages that students might find useful, such as guides to citing and evaluating Web sites, etc.

What are some design tips?
