Web Site Basics for
Things Your Home Page Should Tell Us
- The title of your entire site
- Who made it, for what course, in what semester and year
(because it's an academic rather than commercial or recreational site)
- What big, personal, intellectual issues you think about
what is on the site
- How you have organized the site's links (in the form of a
menu with defined hyperlinks)
Things Your Web Pages Should Provide as Part of this
Frontiers 100 Section
- A reflective and
analytical essay written in response to
each of the six
main authors we are reading
- Additional web pages about topics that emerge from the
readings and continue to interest you, from author to author (e.g., culturally
relative value systems, conformity and modern culture, political causes of
"natural" events, etc.).
- A growing set of hyperlinks between pages on your web site
that connect texts in which similar issues are raised, like this one to
Arts as a Mind-Orienting Web of Inter-Related Skills and
Knowledge section of the main "Intellectual Voyage Life Web" page.
- A set of hyperlinks and incorporated material from outside
your web that connects your thinking to resources that help us expand our
awareness of the course's main issues, like travel vs. tourism, cultures as
places where values control perception, voyages as challenges to travelers'
values and identities, our discovery of new worlds and self-transformation by
what we discover, etc.
- Links to the
web sites of other students in the class on pages where you think something
cool is going on, with brief explanations of what we will see there.
