Highlights of DreamWeaver
According to Macromedia, "DreamWeaver is a professional visual editor for creating and managing Web sites and pages." I hoped that DreamWeaver could create web pages which could do more than what I could do using Netscape's Composer. I wanted to learn the basics and add a couple more items to my repetoire of design. I wanted my pages my pages look more professional and appealing to the user. All of my current web pages consist mostly of text and links. Without much trouble I have learned how the interface of DreamWeaver works and how to manipulate it's functions, including Site set up.
DreamWeaver is able to do so much more than I will ever need to have good, functioning web pages for the library and the college. Learning how to add html, create layers, make cascading style sheets, add animation on a timeline, create forms, and behaviors was an great experience. I would not say I feel super comfortable with all of these items but what I really need is practice applying these skills appropriately to my pages. I have aquired these skills by following the tutorial in the software, taking an excellent online class from Education to Go, looking at the variety of links from the web and keep a stack of books about DreamWeaver on my desk.
What I hope to present to you in this web site and presention are the very basics to get you started. This site is basically a collection of links that I have found to be extremely helpful. I am sure there are many features that others will learn with greater skill, and we welcome everyone's expertise. Collaboration and sharing our web site and page creations will enable all of us to learn things more quickly and easily.
