Building your professional Website
Rob Farmer

This is a hands-on workshop in which you will create your own website, and learn how to add text, design and multimedia elements to the site. The workshop is designed to help build familiarity and confidence using Web 2.0 tools to promote yourself and your work to the wider research community. No experience of creating web sites is necessary, and you do not have to make the website public until you are ready to do so. All the Web 2.0 tools used are free and are browser based, so you will not need to install any software onto your computer. Laptops will be available for use in the session, although you may bring your own if you prefer. If you do not have a Google Account you will need to set one up, and this usually requires you to have a mobile phone with you for account verification.

By the end of this session you will have:

  • Set-up a Google Account*;
  • Set-up a website using GoogleSites;
  • Added pages and text to your site;
  • Added design elements and multimedia content to your site.

*If you do not have a Google Account already, you will need to have mobile phone with you in order to complete the Google Account verification process.
