2.1.2 Compose a web page

This resource is very similar to the text page (see above), except it supports full formatting in the main “Full text” box. To add a “Compose a web page” resource, select it from the “Add a resource” menu:


This will take you to a page like this:


Name - can be anything you like. This is what the students will see in the classroom.

Summary - is a brief summary of the main text. It is used to help students quickly determine if the resource is relevant to what they are looking for. The summary box supports formatting (bold, underline, etc.) that can be found on the tool bar.

Full text - is where the main text is entered. This box supports all formatting tools on the tool bar (bold, underline, etc.).

Window: Hide (or Show) settings - lets you change how the resource is viewed. By default, the resource appears in the same browser window that the user started in. If you want it to open the page in a new browser window, click on “New window.” You can then also define how big the new window will be, and other options.

Visible to Students - If it is set to “Show” will allow your students to see this page. If it is set to hide, your students will not see the page (useful if you’re still editing it!).

When you are finished, click on “Save changes.”
