Web Training & Consulting

Web Committee

I have served on the Andrews University Web Committee since 1996 as secretary, then co-chair.  In this capacity, I helped to formulate guidelines for personal web pages.  I was an advocate for the creation of the new position of Web Coordinator in University Relations, and helped to draft the job description for this position.  I was an active contributor in the project to redesign the Andrews web page, and sought to develop templates and guidelines that could readily be adopted by departments to give a common look and feel to all pages.  Using the budgeting process, I was able to create the position of Web Developer in ITS, in order to provide greater development and support capacity to the University as business moves increasingly to the web.

Simple web guidelines

Initially, I saw this as an excellent opportunity for collaboration among the members of the Technology Task Force.  It was clearly an area where Leadership participants were looking for tips on creating and uploading their personal website.  But that did not eventuate.  Instead, I have put together a collection of links that I found helpful when I was building my first web pages.  These links cover the fundamentals of designing and writing effective web pages.  All the links were still live last time I checked (Sunday, February 27, 2000), but some of them are 2 to 3 years old and need to be replaced with more recent links.

Netscape and Internet Explorer both have simple but effective WYSIWYG web editors, which will allow you to write and format documents, insert graphics, set background colors or images, etc.  Netscape's is called Composer.  Internet Explorer's is called FrontPage Express.  In addition to these, there are a host of shareware HTML editors, as well as commercially available products such as DreamWeaver and FrontPage.  The following links contain reviews of some of the most popular tools.

8. Uploading Your Web Page

Instructions for transferring your web pages to your Internet provider's web server will vary according to the ISP who provides your Internet connection.  Consult your documentation or call or email your ISP for support.
