We will spend this week learning how to create simple web pages. We will also examine the basics of your ifs space on the UM server:



The primary resource starting point is this web page: how to create basic web pages

Colby College: Dreamweaver: Importing Data and Charts/Graphs from Excel

[note: more links on the "how to create web pages" site]


Software used

We will use Macromedia's Dreamweaver -- it is a powerful program, and is supported by the campus computer sites (and used to create these course pages). However, there are numerous web authoring programs, and you may use another if you choose.



You will use these web page skills to create web pages of your data table and graphs for Assignment 2.
