HTML: It's Simpler than You Think!
Have you ever tried to add something to a blog or Web page but things just didn't look quite like you wanted them to? Or have you wanted to share a technical skill with your students that would be useful for them to know? If so, you should consider HTML, or hypertext markup language, an easy way to make Web pages or online text look like you want by applying simple text tags. It's easier than you might think – and works whether you have a PC or a MAC!
Join Brenda Hauff as she explains what HTML is, some of the basic principles behind it, and why it's useful to know HTML. She will walk you through creating a basic page using simple HTML tags and show how some of the more common tags can be used to apply fonts, indents, color schemes, buttons, and more. She will also cover some troubleshooting tips in case things don't look quite like you expected. In addition, Brenda will briefly share some Web tools that make creating a website easier, and provide a list of resources that you can use to continue learning about and exploring HTML.
