This computer lesson will enable each student to use Netscape Navigator Gold to design their own web page.


Students will use Netscape Navigator Gold to create and design an original web page.


Students will use the Web Page Wizard to design their own web page.
Students will format the look of their page with bullets, text color, background pattern and color, and horizontal images.

Students will insert at least 3 hypertext links onto the web page.

Students will save the page under a filename they choose.

Students will edit their web page to continue to add details and improve design.

Students will learn to insert images from remote web sites.


In a world of ever changing technology, the hottest innovation is designing web pages. This is a skill that can be used as a career, to enhance a career, to learn to express individual interests and hobbies, and to enhance learning by making “topical” web pages for class assignments. This will give my students another edge to their future.

Once students are comfortable with designing using the Wizard, they will be encouraged to build a page on their own without the prompting or limitations that the Wizard contains.
