Creating your Website
Creating, thinking, designing and understanding the affordances of websites in today's virtual information age is key. In the sciences websites, electronic databases, and web interfaces are becoming increasingly important. It is often the first place one will go to seek for information. We look for electronic publication, we navigate important scientific databases, we search and access current information about the natural world, and we are constantly evaluating the validity of the resources we find. In this lab you will be contributing to the world community creating a scientifically sound website.
IMPORTANT: As you navigate Google Sites, share, converse and/or ask questions if you are having difficulties or are curious about designing a website.
Editing an image does not mean you do not need to reference the image. If you do find yourself editing an image make sure you add to your citation or caption the word "Adapted from: "Reference" " and make sure you add the source to your cited work section.
Below is an online image editor that you might find useful for creating images suitable for your website. Other image editing programs like fireworks, irfamview, photoshop, paint, etc would work as well.
