Adding links to the Online Learning pages

The ‘Adding Learning Objects from…‘ post isn’t clear enough about how to edit your online learning pages, so here are some more comprehensive steps. At the bottom of this document is the location of the How To stuff on the S drive.

1. Open My Computer (Windows key + E).

2. Open the K drive.

3. Open your year’s folder (i.e. Year 3).

4. Find the page that you want to edit (it will have the blue Internet Explorer logo on it).

5. Right-click the file and select Open With>Adobe Dreamweaver CS3

6. Add some text or an image to link from. You can do this by replacing some text (selecting the <<Insert Text Here>> text and then writing over it) or inserting an image (selecting the <<Insert Image Here>> text and pasting an image over it).

7. With the text or image selected, add the link by pasting it into the Link field at the bottom of the page.

8. Deselect the text or image (by clicking somewhere else on the page) and save it (File>Save)

9. Let me know and I will update the online version of the page.

How do I know if it has worked?

Once you have saved the page, follow these steps:

1. Open My Computer (Windows key + E).

2. Open the K drive.

3. Open your year’s folder (i.e. Year 3).

4. Find the page that you want to check (it will have the blue Internet Explorer logo on it).

5. Double click the file to open it with Internet Explorer – this will be the page the kids see when they go to their online learning page.
