WEBSITE DESIGN

You are now ready to focus on creating the actual website content. The first step should be to plan out your pages in rough on paper so that there is some structure and logic to the whole site. Spend some time browsing the internet to get a feel for what an appealing website looks like. It's also a good idea to check other educational websites to get ideas about interesting pages, creative layouts and informative content.

Once you have a rough idea of what you want, then the actual pages need to be created. The website pages are written in a computer language called HTML, but don't worry, you don't actually have to know it to have a website. You can create web pages in just about any modern word processor or publishing program such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Publisher, Corel WordPerfect, etc. If you feel a little more ambitious and would like specialized web design software then have a look at products from Microsoft, Adobe, or Netobjects.

If the thought of learning a new program doesn't appeal to you, then check with the company you chose to host your website. Sometimes they have free programs which guide you through the website creation process so it is almost as easy as typing a letter. Of course, it all depends on how sophisticated you want your website to be, but most school and classroom websites are relatively simple.

Don't worry if you still don't think you can create your own website. There are many computer savvy youngsters out there that are into website design and will gladly design your website for just a few dollars. Just ask around. If you have a rough idea of what you want then they can probably create your website for you in just a few evenings. If you want to go with a professional then be prepared to spend a few hundred dollars on your website design.
