Abstract

OBJECTIVES: The session will delve into the latest Web design technologies for today’s educators, focusing on the more basic software packages. Learn how to get started immediately and have a fully functional Web site in mere minutes and not hours, or even days. This modern approach offers those individuals with even the most basic technology skills an opportunity to easily create and administrate all types of Web pages using basic site building tools and resources provided by NSU for interested faculty to use in their courses.

TEACHING METHODS: The session will be conducted as an overview of software packages which allow basic Web site design using a simple format and interface for both “low and high” technology participants. Dr. Bucker will also accept questions and moderate discussions among the participants.

CONTENT OVERVIEW: The content of this workshop is divided into several parts corresponding to different steps necessary to establish a Web presence. This session will offer participants the opportunity to walk away with the specific steps necessary to complete this often daunting task. Very few faculty nationwide take advantage of this opportunity to connect with students via the Web and it is hoped that this session will expand the “reach” of NSU faculty to their students through enhanced communication via both personal and professional Web sites.

PROJECT IMPACT: It is anticipated that the participants of this workshop will leave with easy-to-use skills necessary to implement a basic Web presence.
