Technical Guidelines for Web Projects

1. Total of all files < 1 meg

2. Maximum file size (including media file) 75k

3. Use relative linking for pages and files within project:

example: <a href = Aournextpage.shtml@>Thislink</a> instead of

<a href = A>Thislink</a>

4. Use preprocessed format for file names ( *.shtml) and embed the following code just above the </body> tag of each page:

<small><strong>This project was produced for Psy 380, <a href="">Social Psychology of Cyberspace</a>, Spring 2000,&nbsp; at <a href="">Miami University</a></strong></small><b><font size="-1">.&nbsp; </font><small>All graphics in these pages are used with permission or under fair use guidelines, are in the public domain,&nbsp; or were created by the authors.&nbsp; Last revised:&nbsp;<!--#echo var="LAST_MODIFIED=%A, %B %d, %Y at %H:%M:%S"-->.</b> </small>&nbsp; <small><b>This document has been accessed&nbsp;<!--#echo var="ACCESSES"-->&nbsp; times since 1 May 2000.</b>&nbsp; <b><a href="">Comments &amp; Questions to R. Sherman</a></b> </small>

5. Name the opening page Aindex.shtml.@

6. Obtain written permission to use all copyrighted material. Provide documentation with final report, and be sure to identify element that permission refers to (e.g., APhoto of Bill Gates as a baby on the >Background= page). Example of request:

AI am a student in an honors course at Miami University doing a project on internet issues. My team would like to use your XXXXX which appears at XXXXX (give url or other location) as part of our project. We will give you credit and provide a link to your site. The report will be published on the course website, . Thank you very much.@

Be sure that your return email address is correct (i.e., not a machine at the library or a computer lab)

Additional Guidelines for Team Web Projects

1. The files for your project should be turned in on a single floppy disk, pc formatted. The pages and references to them should allow the entire project to be browsed from the floppy as if it were a web site. (External links should work if the computer is connected to the WWW.) Make a back-up of the disk.

2. Turn in a printed copy of all pages you have created as well as the disk. Use a browser to print each page from the floppy disk.

3. Turn in printed copies of all permissions to use copyrighted material with the floppy and the printed version of the project. If necessary, annotate the permissions to make sure it is clear exactly what they refer to in your pages. If you have used public domain elements, still document where you obtained them (url, printed media, etc.) and clearly indicate they are public domain.

4. Turn in your documentation of collaboration at the same time as the other materials. As noted in the original guidelines, documentation can take many forms, including a jointly written description of the process, rough drafts in which member comments to each other are written in margins, etc.

5. Team presentations of projects:

a. Each team will have about 20 minutes to present their project to the rest of the class.

b. The presentation should include visually presenting the project via the computer project, discussing interesting and important points learned from the project, difficulties solved and unsolved, etc. All team members must be involved in the presentation.

c. Attendance during the presentations is required for all class members. Those not presenting will be asked to record their comments and reactions to the other teams= projects, and copies will be distributed to everyone at the time of the final.
