One of a series of pages to develop course design and test web pages to be used in the Outreach Program at Christ United Methodist Church in Easton, Pa.


Csic Purpose

  • To develop course design and test web pages to be used in the Outreach Program at Christ United Methodist Church in Easton, Pa.

Csic Course Design

Limit class size to the available 14 workstations.

Using all available resources - create and teach a course to make intelligent use of the Internet and e-mail simple.

Would like to create a Splash Web Page with links to Week One, Week Two, Week Three, Week Four, a Glossary Page and FAQ's.

Would like to use Powerpoint to capture a lot of the screen prints for each of the four weeks session - this may be easier than loading all as web pages and give an alternate way to present information especially with timed arrows pointing to different parts of the screens.

Have not yet decided whether to do the Twiki Pages in the first half and the Powerpoint shows in the second half of class or intertwine them. I would prefer to intertwine if I could move easily enough between the browser and the powerpoint shows. Powerpoint shows would consist of following -

  • Week One - Screen Prints of Different Web Browsers/Web Pages.
  • Week Two - Screen Prints of Different E-Mail Provider Pages.
  • Week Three - Screen Prints of Different Search Engine Pages.
  • Week Four - Screen Prints of Different Useful Links.

Would also like to hand out cd's instead of books with a tablet for them to take notes. This would save a lot of time putting books together. I would need help if I wanted to do an autostart menu.

Use the large screen stand alone setup in the acutal room to demonstrate instructions and also the webcam section, can be put by the double doors.
