Designing Your School Web Site

Establishing Credibility
previous page next page

Each webpage should include information that will establish credibility of the content. Below are suggested ways you can establish the credibility of the content. You can use one or a combination of these ideas, depending on the kind of content you are creating:

1. Create a Standard Closing

You can create a standard closing located at the bottom of each webpage. Simply copy and paste this closing from one webpage to the other. You should include the following information:

  • the name of the author(s) of this activity
  • e-mail address of the contact person for this activity
  • when was this webpage last updated and links were checked
  • the name of the host school or organization

2. Add a link to your personal webpage

Within your webpage, add a link to your personal homepage. This homepage should describe some of the following:

  • Display a list of all names responsible for the creation of this resource. Include who was responsible for developing which resource or their "job description". This format is usually used when listing the student members of the school webteam. Check your school's publishing policy to determine whether or not last names of students can be included.
  • Include on this page how you can contact someone regarding this project.
  • If this is a link to an educator's homepage, list your school title and any other resources that will establish why you would have knowledge for developing this resource.

3. Include a list of resources

List the resources that were used while researching this topic. It may include either credits for graphics included on your site and online as well as offline resources that were used.
