    Assignment to complete in today’s workshop (√ when done)
    _____  A.  Map your drive on our course web server site:

    _____  B.  Create your own folder inside the course Migration folder, labeled with your last name. Always save all your web pages and images to this folder.

    _____  C.  Create an index.htm page. Open the program FrontPage, create a new page, and ‘save as’ index.htm. [in drop-down menu: web on clcc211/KOPTIUCH/Migration/yourname]

  • This is your personal home page with links to all pages of your web portfolio.
  • Insert the logo for our course page at top.
  • Create a ‘return’ link at bottom: Return to Migration & Culture home page. Link it to the main index.html file in our course Migration folder.
  • Create a Table to design this page [John will give instructions—take notes!]
  • _____  D.  Create a template page.  After setting up this template, you can copy this page several times to make several project pages for your web portfolio. _____  E.  Create eight web pages for your web portfolio materials. Open your template page (D), ‘save as’ each of the pages below (you can use your own filenames). Put the title of each project on the page as a reminder (you can change it to your actual title later). (do all if time, do at least three or four if no time, so that you’ll have a model for later)
