Presentation Guidelines

Your goal is to present your Academic Resume Website to the class.

  • Your presentation must be brief.
  • Begin by introducing yourself. Pretend nobody knows your name.
  • Introduce your website
    • "Today I will be showing you my Academic/Resume Website."
  • Show your Home Page in it's entirety.
    • Show your Welcome Video (Video Project One)
  • Show the rest of your pages in their entirety, in this order:
    • Resume
    • Community
    • Academics
    • Co Curricular
    • References
  • Ask if anyone has any questions.
  • Thank your audience.

After all presentations are over, your goal is to confirm that your Academic Resume Website is published on the web.

  • Change the Share settings on each of your six pages and any embedded Google Documents. Here's how:
  • Color Scheme, Navigation
    • If you haven't done it already, make sure you have a consistent color scheme, and that you have solid navigation on every page. Make sure you have titles on every page as well.
  • File Management
    • The rule of thumb that I will apply for the purposes of grading is a place for everything, and everything in its place. Every website is organized in a slightly different way, but if you have organized your website, it will be obvious to me. If you haven't organized your website, that will be equally obvious.
  • Links
    • Make sure you don't have any dead links or bad links! This is the cardinal sin of web design. If I find ONE, the highest grade I will give you is a C.
  • Titles
    • Make sure you have titled your website. DO NOT title your site Untitled Site.
    • Make sure you have titles on every page. DO NOT title your page Untitled Document.
  • Spelling
    • "i" will lower your grade. "u" will lower your grade. SPELL CHECK CAREFULLY!
