We began by brainstorming what we would like to have in our portfolios.
Six groups met and shared their ideas via an ancient technology requiring skill in dragging chalk

We met in 415 Computer Center to begin working on creating webpages.
: You might enjoy seeing the portfolios of teachers in my on-campus
Electronic Portfolios for Teaching and Learning.
A top priority is for you to decide which software to use for creating webpages.
I suggest you consider one of the following three:
Netscape, Dreamweaver, or Frontpage.
Netscape has the advantage of being free (download) or cheap (order
online at address below),
which means you can put it on your laptop, home computer, and school.
Click here for a brief introduction to Netscape.
Frontpage by Microsoft is widely used by K-12 teachers and was included on the computers given to teachers recently in Michigan. It is a good program but is not on computers at MSU.
Dreamweaver is about $100 for MSU students and is very powerful
but a bit more difficult to learn initially. You can buy this in the MSU computer
store or bookstore.

Downloads . This page contains links to download sites, for FTP software, etc.
. Netscape Communicator 4.72, and Netscape 6.2 or 7.0 include
the capacity for making Web pages (unlike Internet Explorer, which is only a browser).
