Web Site Project
Each of your assignments requires you to create a Web page.
This assignment can be done as part of one of those assignments,
or it can be an independent Web site. If it is not part of another
project, your Web site must be useful in an educational context.
Create a series of at least four World Wide Web Pages that
provide information that is useful in an educational context,
that are designed as a lesson to teach something, or that are
part of another assignment for this class
For this project, you want to explore some moderately advanced
features of one Web site creation tool. The tool you choose is up to
you, but you want to demonstrate that you have gone beyond the basics
of whatever tool you choose. Some examples of tools that you might
- HTML code - yes, you can hand-code the project using HTML
- KompoZer - this free HTML editor might make it easier to create HTML code (I use this for many things that I do)
- Weebly (http://www.weebly.com/) - the free version of this online Web creation tool has many easy-to-use and powerful features
- Wix (http://www.wix.com/) - same idea as Weebly
- Google Sites (http://sites.google.com/) - Google's version of an online site creation tool
- Wikispaces (http://www.wikispaces.com/)
- while wikispaces is primarily used to create pages with multiple
editors, it can be used by one person to create regular Web pages
- Anything else (http://lmgtfy.com/?q=free+website+creation) - the above are just examples; your goal is to demonstrate that you have explored a tool deeply
Once you have completed the pages, put them on the Web. You
may use your Loyola University Web space, your school's Web server
(if allowed by your school), or any other space to which you have
access. Some of the tools are Web based and automatically put the pages
on the Web; just be sure that the pages are published and publicly
This project can be done in combination with other projects.
That is, you might wish to create a series of Web pages to complement
another project you are doing. In fact, you are strongly encouraged to
combine this project with ONE other project. While you may combine it
with all your projects, you are encouraged to restrict this to one
project. When handing this in, be clear about the scope of this project.
Minimum Grading Criteria:
- Is a site consisting of at least 4 different pages that link
to each other.
- Is complete and useful in an educational context, either
as reference material, as a lesson (I will be looking for a sound
educational plan, not just some stuff thrown together on a few
web pages), or as part of another assignment.
- Correctly uses the chosen tool and explores moderately advanced features of the tool.
an appropriate title on the top of the page (some tools automatically
do this, but be sure you have chosen an appropriate title); in HTML,
this is the title done with the <title> tag.
- Uses tables and/or lists when appropriate.
- Includes pointers to at least 3 external web pages with related
information (these are pointers to pages that are not part of
- Contains graphics.
- Contains your email address in a "clickable" form.
- Embeds content from other sources (such as YouTube videos, polls, etc.)
- Is presented neatly and professionally, including correct
grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
- Is publicly available on the World Wide Web.
If the minimum grading criteria are met, you will receive a
B for this assignment. The grade of A is reserved for outstanding
work that goes beyond the minimum criteria. See the rubric for more details about grading criteria.
What to Hand In
- The URLs of your Web pages (note that if this is combined
with another project, the URL of a Web page that is online will
suffice in place of an electronic copy of the page) handed in via Moodle.
- A description of how this page will be used in an
educational context (this statement can be very brief if the
Web site is part of another project, but it must be present)
- If this is part of another project, you MUST specify which project since it is not allowed to be all your projects combined.
- (Optional) A brief written justification for any variations
in formatting and style to those recommended on this page
- (Optional, but required for an A) Paragraph describing how you have exceeded the
minimum grading criteria.
