One of my classes that I am teaching is an introduction to the Internet and Web Design course. The students are entry level, community college students, and the course is 4 hours credit. 95% of the students have never before created a webpage and we used No textbook for the class. I taught them to use Web resources to learn HTML, and the principles of Web Design. They are learning to be self-taught web designers. Their 'main' project was to overhaul the Faculty Pages for our campus. They used only Notepad as their editor, and MS Frontpage to upload and tweak the pages. Here is the before: [url]http://www.tvcc.cc.tx.us/carlile/[/url] [url]http://www.tvcc.cc.tx.us/nspencer/[/url] [url]http://www.tvcc.cc.tx.us/thainze/[/url] Here is what the students in my class created, from scratch, using only the Internet, class discussions, principles of design, peer tutoring, etc. [url]http://www.tvcc.edu/faculty/ballen/facultywebpage.html[/url] They have completed pages for 5 other faculty members and they will be uploaded once they pass the instructors final approval.

They used monkey images to represent intructors until Digital pics could be taken.

The ICONS and icon bar are way to big, but the overall layout and graphics are nice and clean. Check out my latest site, and let me know what grade I would have received in your class... [;)] [url]www.ar15-convention.com[/url]

I agree about the icons and the bar. We discussed it in class, they liked the look, and I try to let them be the judge of what 'they' like to see. FWIW, each piece of information on the site was determined by the students, layed out by them, graphical buttons created freehand, and even the instructor information was gathered by the groups (office hours, syllabus etc.). I can live with the icons, since they worked so hard to make them. I appreciate your comment that the site is nice and clean. We tried very hard to achieve that look. As for your site. VERY nice! Clean site, no animations, no scrolls. Simple and easy to navigate. I did notice something odd. When I mouseover the AR15.com rifle in the top left, after leaving the java buttons, it shows as a clickable link. When I mouseover from the large image of the rifle in the center, it does not show as the small rifle as a clickable link. Could be my Netscape acting up. TheRedGoat

Actually the kids performed superbly that I did not have to bust heads open after we got back to out dojo. Note: This was my kids demo team when I taught martial arts.
