Web Teaching Guide: A Practical Approach to Creating Course Web Sites Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Prompted by student enthusiasm and by the opportunity to enhance college courses, more and more faculty members in higher education are incorporating the Web into their teaching. This helpful book is designed to answer the questions an educator who lacks extensive technical experience asks about creating a Web site: Why should I use the Web? How can the Web enhance my teaching? How do I make a Web site? How can I make it effective? Multimedia specialist Sarah Horton draws on extensive experience as a faculty Web consultant to explain the entire process of creating a site, from initial planning through site assessment. She examines the strengths of the Web and its many possible uses. More than just a way to distribute course handouts, a Web site can provide richer content, multiple expressions of an idea, interactivity, opportunities for collaboration and customization, and flexibility for updates. Horton urges teachers to consider the ever-growing possibilities that information technology presents. Her focus is on practical matters related to creating Web-based instructional materials. With case studies throughout, she discusses the planning process, content creation, site development, and finally site implementation in the curriculum.

Book News Annotation:

With increasing numbers of instructors putting courses on the web, this book is a timely contribution. Horton, a faculty web consultant, details the whole process of placing a course on a website—from initial planning to site evaluation—so as to provide richer content, interactivity, and opportunities for less stressful study outside the classroom. Where before, Horton explains, students might have visited multiple bricks-and-mortar, or web locales to gather materials on say, Robert Frost, Horton shows how to digitize these materials and include them on a one-stop shopping website.
