Creating Class Webs

Web Layout and Navigation
Once you have decided the kind of class web page you want and organized your content, you are ready to decide on a layout template for your class web. FP 2000 has some ready made templates to choose from, or you may create your own. Review some layout options

A useful layout is  "One-column Body, with Contents on Left" template. The advantage to this layout is that a Table of Contents is always visible. Also,  if this template is used for each page of your web, the same Table of Contents is always visible to the viewer. This makes navigating your web easy. 

"Normal Page" is a basic blank page. It also is well suited for web layouts. Lists or Tables may be inserted on the "Normal Page" to contain the hyperlinks to the various sections of your portfolio. 

Your main or home page should contain hyperlinks to the various sections of your web. It should also introduce the viewer to your class web. Also every page in your web should have a link back to the home page (or a navigation strip/bar).

If you have taken time to explore other kinds of educational webs, you probably have an idea of the format you want.
