sites do not make the viewer work hard to get the information presented.
Does the site:
|Have a purpose? Support the curriculum?||Answer frequently asked questions?||Load fast?|
|Facilitate communication with parents and teachers?||Have simple backgrounds? Have graphics that serve a purpose?||Have current information?|
|Describe classroom activities?/Showcase student work? Help students learn?||Use original art/free clip art?||Have good grammar and spelling?|
|Give the viewer choices? (Is it interactive?)||Have a title for each page? Have consistent navigational tools? Does everything link back and forth?||Have sound files or movies that take so long to load and which irritate the viewer?|
|Have color scheme/visual themes carried out throughout the site?||Have the most important information above the fold (before scrolling)||Say "Under Construction"?|

TUTORIAL - http://davesite.com/webstation/html/
Through the use of text input forms, the interactive tutorial allows you to test your new found HTML skills within your browser, without having to create files in a separate text editor. To take advantage of this interactivity you will need at least version 2.0 of either Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer. This complete tutorial will take you from ground zero (what is HTML?) to uploading your page to the Net. Advanced topics such as adding sound and using frames are covered in a separate section.
BASICS - http://www.htmlgoodies.com/primers/basics.html
Seven tutorials for seven days. When you complete The Basics, you're awarded a diploma, and can progress to primers on image maps, buttons, forms, or any of the dozens of HTML Goodies topics. HTML tags (you know those commands that start with "<" and end with ">") are called flags.
KIDS - http://www.goodellgroup.com/tutorial/
This guide to HTML covers all the basics in twelve chapters and two reviews. Because many HTML students, after learning the tags for text, graphics and links, get stuck when they get to tables, there are two chapters about HTML tables, and they are excellent.
