Explanation of Group Project December  - worth            20% 

In groups of 3/4 people you will
1. pick a subject that can be taught exclusively through text and images on a web page
  (no matter what interesting or amusing subject you discuss - it must have a learning component)
2. create the web page and make sure the associated links are working.
3. marks will be given for

  • what you teach - is it something useful, interesting, helpful
  • how you explain it - words, pictures, links to other sites
  • incorporate all the HTML tools you have been taught
  • overall appearance of the pages
  • make sure you have somebody check for spelling mistakes and linking errors
  • have this page linked to all members in the group - if it is not linked to all members in the group - those members will not be marked
  • identify who in the group is responsible for what parts in the comments part of the code on the page
look at the pages of web sites that teach subjects on-line
understand how they lay out the site and how they use words and pictures to explain


Group / Team Collaboration Project - 20%

The purpose of the Group project:
Now that you have had a chance to learn how to make HTML pages for the past 3 1/2 months, the question is can you create a useful web page making some valuable contribution to the Web. This valuable contribution will be your attempt to teach/explain some aspect of using or participating in some feature of the internet. You will create a web page, from  scratch, which will "teach" the viewers of this page, something of interest they might like to know. You must keep in mind that your ability to expain is limited to the page and therefore all your explanations and descriptions must be "cyber". Teaching somebody something face2face is always more useful because you can answer questions or give specialized direction. You're challenge is to anticipate what additional questions might be asked of visitors to your web site and make sure they can be answered.

Make sure all members of the group are identified and make sure all members of the group have a link to the page from whichever person's site you host it on.
