|How exciting! After all
your hard work, you are ready to "show off" your web page to
your students and to the WORLD.
If you or your school do not have an
Internet server, a computer that is always hooked up to the
Internet, you can open your web page locally. This
means that only your students or your school community will be able to
view your web page. Doing this allows you to use the Internet in a
controlled and supervised manner.
To use your pages locally type the
path of the home page file in the URL field of your browser. For example
if your Web Page is saved on the floppy disk, type A:index.htm in the
Wide Web Presence
In order for the WORLD to have access to your web page you must have an
account set up on an Internet Server. Your choices are probably one
of the following: School Account, Personal
Internet Account, or Free Web Based
Districts have different policies and procedures on Internet server
access. You should contact your school administrator for information on
how to publish your web page to the school's server.

Internet Account: Most private ISP's (Internet Service

personal home page. If so, you will be provided with an account on their
server. To access the account you will receive a User ID, and a password
which will enable you to upload your web pages to that server. You must
contact and question your ISP about the best method for publishing your

Web Based Servers: There are
many web sites on the Internet that provide free web server space. They
not only provide you with the server space but also with the development
tools to create the pages. The only draw back to having a web page on a
server such as this is that often times school filtering systems such as
Bess or Cyber Patrol will block out web pages posted on these servers.
These servers may be blocked out due to the fact that they usually offer
free e-mail accounts which may be a resource the district does not want
their students to have access to.
