About This Article


This article is part of a series of web pages on Developing Web Pages for Teaching. They were originally developed by Scott Van Bramer for a faculty development workshop at Widener University. They have been modified reorganized and expanded for the CCCE Newsletter.


The Web has quickly become a powerful tool for undergraduate education and its use has rapidly expanded. Many faculty are struggling with how to use this tool for teaching. This question includes both what to do and how to do it. The web becomes a much more effective teaching tool when faculty can develop web pages for their courses. This set of articles will help you decide what to do and how you want to do it. This first article in the series is an introduction to what web pages can do. The focus is on what things you can use the web for, since the first question you need to ask is what to put on the web. The next part of this article are some style comments about web pages, since web design is different than typical page layout and it can have a strong impact on how usable your web pages are. The last section of this article is an overview of some basic HTML features. In designing a web page it is critical that you know what can be done, reviewing some of the basic features of HTML should help you know what to expect. Spend some time up front will help make your web pages much more useful to your students.
