Building a Website

Sessions that look at how to design and create a website using HTML, CSS and JavaScript

It is now relatively easy to put together a website using pre-defined templates with easy access editing tools. This collection of workshops takes pupils behind the scenes, allowing them complete control over the design, as well as the content.

To discuss or book this or any of our other workshops, please contact Tally Roberts.

Equipment provided

We provide a delivery officer, PowerPoint presentations and web-page hosting on our university servers.

If needed, we also have 20 laptops that we can bring in with the required software pre-installed.

What you need to supply

A presentation screen or projector for the provided PowerPoints.

Ideally, this is best suited for a computer room with enough computers for at least one between two.

Internet access for sharing of files for upload to a server for testing purposes.

If providing the computer facilities, please ensure that they have a suitable editor installed. We recommend either Atom or Komodo IDE, both of which are free to download via these links (although Komodo will require users to register for a free account).

It is possible, but not as user friendly, to simply use a text-editor such as Notepad or WordPad if you are unable to install the above.

Length of workshop

Each session is 60 minutes long and there are three core sessions available: Writing, Styling and Programming Webpages.

We tend to cater the exact content and number of sessions to the needs of the project goal.

Age groups

We recommend this for secondary and sixth-form pupils. We alter the content and scaffolding according to the age group concerned.

It is possible to do a basic introductory version of each for years 5 and 6 (ages 9-11) through the use of pre-existing templates.

Links to other workshops

These workshops are offered singly, in their own mini-series, or as part of a larger project.

Website designing ties in with some of our A-Level Business Webinars (such as marketing and/or branding) available to download for free from our TES shop.

The JavaScript basics they will learn as part of the Programming Websites session are a good basis for some of our higher-level Lego Mindstorms workshops.

Virtual delivery requirements

We can support these sessions remotely via Teams or Zoom. This will require a presentation screen or projector, microphone, speakers, and webcam.

Students will need to have access to computers (at least one between two), the software and an internet connection.
