HIS104: Project help page


This page is designed to help Groups to construct and write their projects, and to publish them as web pages. To begin with, it is important to ask the right questions about the subject of your project. What period are you interested in? How long should it be?
How to work as a team.
There are a number of problems associated with team work.
One is the allocation of an equal workload. You can organise this as you like, but a few suggestions are:
Divide up responsibilities: projects might consist of 'researchers': those who do literature searches and look up relevant images and graphics; there might be one or two people whose main task is to produce an attractive web page; everybody should be in on the content, but perhaps only a few will do the actual writing, perhaps from notes made by others.
A second problem might be scheduling the work. Work out a timetable for the completion of particular tasks. The entire project has to be finished by end of the semester, before the examinations, on 15th January 2001 before 4pm. Finished means that you must have completed the website, to your satisfaction. Although the content should take priority, do not leave writing the web pages until the last minute. Someone in your group (or more than one) should have a go at writing a few simple pages soon.

How to construct web pages.
It is not difficult. That is why so many people write web pages. Many of them are not that bright, too, so you lot should have no trouble at all. The best thing you could do NOW is to read the excellent beginner's guide to writing web pages produced by the University Computing Service.


A web page is basically just plain text, with added tags which browsers like Internet Explorer recognise and convert into the web page you see here. If you want to see what this page looks like, pull down View Source from the menu bar in Internet Explorer. To go to a step by step guide to writing webpages using Word 97, click here. The following points need to be remembered:
