World Wide Web Pages--Tools for Teaching and Learning.
Beasley, Sarah; Kent, Jean
Created to help educators incorporate World Wide Web pages into teaching and learning, this collection of Web pages presents resources, materials, and techniques for using the Web. The first page focuses on tools for teaching and learning via the Web, providing pointers to sites containing the following: (1) course materials for both distance and traditional education; (2) up-to-date information resources, such as the Census Bureau Home Page; (3) innovative methods of expanding the classroom via online conferencing, listservs, and electronic mail; (4) hypermedia tools to support a variety of learning styles; (5) student-published projects; and (6) student home page projects. Next, resources for developing Web instructional pages are presented, including sites related to teaching on the Web, hypertext markup language (HTML) resources, and potential sources of information and course content. Techniques for saving source code from home pages are then described for both Windows- and Macintosh-based Web browsers and basic instructions for coding in HTML are presented, including commonly used HTML tags and hints for applying hyper-link tags. The next page reviews strategies for creating and testing home page files, while the final two pages discuss creating and using bookmarks, or locally maintained lists of sites, for both Macintosh and Windows versions of Netscape 2.0. Contains 13 references to books on using HTML. (HAA)[tilde]library/league.html
