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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
