Webpage project Sunday, 1 February 2009

Create your own web site inside your Web Documents folder.

Your web site has to consist of:

  • A personal web page showing your basic personal information, interests, skills, academic and work experience. The idea here is to set up your own “Curriculum Vitae” or formal personal profile page online. This should be your main page, with links to your blog and podcasts/photo album. (1 point for contents, 2 for working links; 3 points in total)

  • A personal blog. Informal, four entries minimum (1 point). Each entry should include a multimedia element, such as photos, audio, or movies (1 point), and at least one web widget (1 point; 3 points in total).

  • Include the previous podcast project in your web site. Alternatively, you may create a photo album page with original photos taken by yourself (1 point).

The duration of this project is two weeks/six lessons.

Please refer to the iWeb Links post for more information and tutorials on how to create a web site with iWeb ’08.

For curriculum vitae formats, examples, and content guidelines, check the following links:
