Create Your Assignment Page

Objective:

To create a banner and a webpage that will link to all of your homework assignments. I will be using this page to access your assignments for grading. The minimum requirements for the page are listed below.

Instructions:

Do Parts 1, 2, & 3 before you arrive to class on the day that this assignment is due. Then we will do Part 4 together in order to upload your work to your web account.


Part 1:

Before you arrive to class on the assignment's due date, design a banner as instructed below:

  1. Create a folder named "115" — preferably inside the StudentFiles folder.
  2. Create a banner that looks at least as intricate as the one below, including a background, prominent text, and a photo of yourself.
    • Your photo should be a headshot.
    • Use any graphics program you desire. E.g Pixlr.com, Paint, GIMP, Photoshop, etc.
    • When finished, save the file as a JPEG or PNG format inside your "115" folder.

Part 2:

Create the HTML file before you arrive at class as well. The skills are based on Chapter 2 only. However, if you have prior experience and wish to use CSS, feel free to do so.

  1. Start an HTML page and name it index.html. Use the code on page 28 to guide you in creating the correct structure and elements. Save it in your 115 folder.
  2. In addition to the banner, add all the information shown in the box on the next page.
