Teacher websites are a perfect place for posting course information, assignments, classroom announcements, and updating parents on current projects and initiatives.
Have fun while designing your website, but be careful not to overwhelm your audience. It is tempting to weigh down your page with animated graphics, music, or a simple overload of information—all of which can lengthen the website download time.
A few website rules of thumb:
All assignments (homework, tests) should be shown on the date when they are due.
Maintain a regular schedule of updates and changes to your website.
Students and parents should know when to expect new content.
Excessive content will require users to scroll, avoid putting too much content on one page.
Check regularly to make sure any links you have included on your website are still working and contain the content for which you selected them.
Consider carefully what personal and contact information you want to make available to students and parents.
