The title page of your module should have a filename that reflects the title of the module. For instance, if the title of the module is Professional Ethics in Geography you might call your title page ETHICS.HTML. Choose the name carefully, because it will also be the name of the directory your module is placed in on the web-server.
4.x Links within your module
The Virtual Department Home Page is designed so that Working Group pages and Modules appear in a large frame (83% of the viewer) alongside a smaller frame which is purely navigational and remains static. This navigational frame contains links to all the materials maintained at the top level of the Virtual Geography Department. You may wish to include some of these links in your pages. They are as follows:
Items that always link to the University of Texas Web server:
|(back to) The Virtual Geography Department||http://www.Colorado.EDU/geography/virtdept/contents.html target=_top|
|News about the Virtual Department||http://www.colorado.edu/geography/virtdept/about/news.html|
|How to Participate||http://www.colorado.edu/geography/virtdept/about/participate.html|
|Quick Guide to the Virtual Department||http://www.colorado.edu/geography/virtdept/about/quickguide.html|
|Other Geography Courses in the Web||http://www.colorado.edu/geography/virtdept/resources/educatio/courses/courses.htm|
|Geography Departments in the Web||http://www.colorado.edu/geography/virtdept/resources/depts/depts.htm|
It is very important that your links to the Virtual Geography Department Home Page specify that the target=_top. Otherwise, the frames will nest, resulting in multiple navigation frames on one screen.
Guide for Instructors
Working Group Leader Instructions:
We strongly recommend that you use the following conventions
when building directories for serving VGP modules in the World Wide Web.
Although it is recognized that you must follow the rules set forth by the
server administrator at your institution, following the conventions outlined
below will greatly facilitate the transfer of files from one place to another,
should that ever prove necessary (and because of the distributed nature
of the VGDP, such transfers are inevitable).
