Web Page Design 101--a "mini-SIG"

Vicki Wassenhove leads the Web Page 101 SIG group. Several years ago Vicki began learning how to design web pages by reading and asking others how it was done. She now shares her experience and tips with the group as they learn how to make web pages.

Working together and using the K.I.S.S method ( Keep It Simple Stupid ) this SIG group goal is to lead everyone along in web design so they might bring their own creativity to the Internet. It is easy to do. Reviews were posted on a 101 class web site after each meeting, enabling access to the information when working at home.

Once again the focus is on free software as a starting point. Each SIG member receives a CD of free web design software that will enable them to make their own pages. Only three components are needed:

  • Web Page Editor: FrontPage Express
  • Image Editor: Google's Picasa
  • A Free Web Page Hosting site:

The GeoCities site offers 15MB of free space which is plenty of room to create your starting projects. Each month there is a question and answer session to share ideas, problems and solutions as the group learns together how to bring these ideas to life. Projects by the class members include websites for alumni classes, hobbies, organizations, small businesses, "Blogs" and sharing family memories.
