Last night a few of my classmates made suggestions to improve my website. This was great to have been able to have a critique of my site. I have been hard at work changing the colour of my resources section for better visual effect. I tried various colours. Some helped, most didn't. Settling on black seems to work the best. I did find it hard sometimes to convert a whole line to black text and found that doing portions at a time worked. There must be something I was doing wrong?
It was suggested that I upload a picture of myself on my About Me page. I am going to work on getting a more professional looking photo of myself as a "teacher" to better represent who I am to be.
In my Educational Philosophy I removed the downloadable file and replaced it with a Scribd slide show. This I am hoping makes it easier for my visitors to view material without having to use up space on their own computer. Next to work on is the Professional Knowledge section. First I made a dummy tab and then put each of my documents in tabs below this. Then I converted them all to Scribd files that are readable within my site.
The Professional Knowledge section has now all been converted to Scribd files downloaded onto my site. A drop down menu assists in accessing and viewing of topics of interests. This section has a large sampling of my completed assignments. This has taken a few hours as I needed to create new pages, convert files and ensure that a consistent layout was achieved. I am pleased with the results. Thank you Ms. Hildebrandt for bringing this to my attention.
My next journey is how to credit an image properly. Compfight was suggested by Ms. Hildebrandt to find images. I am having a bit of trouble figuring out how to do photo credits with Weebly. Off to google to learn. Why is this so difficult???
I still need to use the tool to clip out portions of videos. I tried downloading ClipGrab but had trouble. Perhaps tomorrow?
