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.

Part 1: Before you arrive to class on January 26, 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 (background, text, & image).
    • Be sure to include a headshot photo of yourself on it.
    • You may use any graphics program you desire. E.g, Paint, GIMP, Photoshop, etc.
    • When finished, save the file as a JPEG or PNG format inside your "115" folder.

Part 2: Now that you have done the graphic portion at home, you can do the remainder of it during class. You do not have to use any kind of CSS styles unless you wish to. The skills are based on Chapter 2 only.

  1. Start an HTML5 page and name it index.html. Use 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.
