Authoring on the World Wide Web
9:30 - 4:30 Tuesday 19th January 1999 Newcastle University
The World Wide Web (WWW) is becoming increasingly
pervasive in society, covering all aspects of
everyday life including commerce, leisure and
education. One of the key features of the WWW
is the ease with which individuals can publish
information, and the simplicity with which
sophisticated and exciting results can be
achieved in a short space of time.
This is a practical workshop for those who are
users of the World Wide Web and wish to start
creating their own Web pages.
It is suitable for researchers and academics from
any discipline, university administrators,
librarians and computing service staff.
The workshop will comprise presentations, demonstrations and
hands-on sessions with opportunities for questions and discussion.
Participants will each receive a workbook which contains workshop
exercises, presentation slides and other relevant materials.
Topics covered will include:
* beginner's guide to Web authoring
* creation of World Wide Web pages
* use of graphics on Web pages
* publishing documents on a Web server
* use of Web authoring packages
* converting existing documents for use on the Web
* validation of Web documents
* Web page design issues
By the end of the session participants will have...
* written simple Web pages using HTML tags
* included graphics in their Web pages
* practised using hypertext to link to other pages
* published Web pages on the Netskills Web server
* seen examples of different Web design styles
* had an opportunity to discuss design issues
* included colours and background images in their Web pages
Participants will also have an opportunity
* produce Web pages with tables, incorporating different text
styles and images
* develop frame based pages and demonstrate multiple page
content within the browser
Participants need no special technical skills; however
basic computer skills such as using a mouse and keyboard
are essential, and experience of using Microsoft Windows
to open and save files and open and close applications
e.g. a Word processor. Participants are expected to have

such as Netscape or Internet Explorer.
