     looks similar to the one you want to make

     As and give the file a meaningful name. File
     name extension should be .html or .htm

4.   Save edited file in public_html folder on
     your U: drive (or a folder inside of
     public_html folder)
5.   Make sure file properties allow EVERYONE
     to READ and Execute the file
6.   Make sure folder properties allow
     EVERYONE to Execute the folder
1. Use Internet Explorer to
    find a model web page
   Use Internet Explorer to find a web page
    similar to one you want to make.
   You are welcome to “borrow” examples from
    www.fit.edu/~jbarlow where I have links to
    templates for my class home pages and
    syllabi.
   Look at other University web sites for ideas.
    See last slide here for links to some
    interesting faculty web pages.
2. Save a copy of the web
page so that you can edit it
   From Internet Explorer’s File menu,
    select Save As and give the file a
    meaningful name. File name
    extension should be .html or .htm
   HINT: make sure that you have
    filename extensions option turned on
    as this will make it easier to find your
    work on the web.
     Turning on filename extension

3. Edit File Using MS Word                                        (cont.)


   There are also some great web sites where
    you can find free graphics, audio, & video:
       www.iconbazaar.com
       Use www.google.com and search for
            gif and jpg files (e.g., “dog gif” will help find websites
             with dog graphics files that you can use)
            wav for audio files
                  Good source of free audio clips
                  more audio clips
            mov or avi for video files

   You can also experiment with backgrounds
       Use Word’s Format menu and select
        Background
   Try adding some
   AutoShapes can also be fun        FUN!
    but save your work often!
   When the web page looks (and sounds) the
    way you want it, Save it as a Web Page
4. Save the file in your web-
assessable folder
   Save the file in your public_html folder on
    your U: drive. Remember the file’s full name
    and extension.
   If the file is named index.html, it will be
    displayed automatically when it’s folder is
    viewed using Internet Explorer:
       my.fit.edu/~jbarlow will display the file named
        index.html in jbarlow’s public_html folder
       my.fit.edu/~jbarlow/syllabus.doc will display
        the file named syllabus.doc in jbarlow’s
        public_html folder
Hints & Common Problems
   Remember filenames and folder names are case-
    sensitive – Public_HTML is different than public_html
   Try to avoid using spaces in filenames (unpredictable)
   If a file is named test.htm and stored in jbarlow’s
    public_html folder, it can be viewed on the web at
    my.fit.edu/~jbarlow/test.htm
   If that same file is stored in folder BUS1234 inside
    of jbarlow’s public_html folder, it can be viewed on
    the web at
    my.fit.edu/~jbarlow/BUS1234/test.htm
