Assignment 4

Due: Due Monday/Tuesday, July 21st/22nd


Using Microsoft PowerPoint:

You will find these elements listed above extremely important in planning and constructing your website since it helps you to focus on information architecture and webdesign, the two concepts that are crucial to building powerful websites.

Slide Design:

    Be as creative as you wish to create a flashy and colorful presentation in order to promote/market your website.


 

You must turn in:

  1. A printout of the slide show.
  2. Post your PowerPoint presentation to your website on i5.nyu.edu. Here are the steps:
  3. 1) Save the Powerpoint presentation as an html document (Choose "save as web page" from the file menu in Powerpoint.) and call it assign4.html. Please note that Powerpoint will create an HTML file called assign4.htm and a folder with many files in it entitled assign4_files. Do not try to rename the file or folder and do not move the files arround because it is important that the relative locations of the files remain the same so they will appear properly on your website after uploading.

    2) Then use Fetch to load up the files. Here is how you can load up all of the files in just two steps: one for the calling file assign4.html and one step for the folder containing the presentation called assign4:

  4. Update your index.html page and include a link from index.html to your assgn4.htm file so that we can find your assignment.
  5. Finally, email the grading account for your section to tell us that your page is ready for grading. The subject of your message should be "Assignment 4" and the body should include both your name and the HTML address in the form:
