Course DescriptionThis hands-on course is for writers who want to create and maintain a website featuring their own work. You will learn weblog software, web authoring software (such as Dreamweaver), design a site made up of several pages, get a domain name and server, and post your site to the web. There will be time during class to work on your webpages. We will examine usability and design issues, web strategy, and web presence. Homework will include bringing in content for your site such as your bio, written material, photos, and links. The goal of this course is to have a website completed and online by the end of the course.
