In our final class, we added a button with a link, locked each pages with a password and finally published our website! I showed them how we can edit the page and unpublish the website. We did a show and tell of what we have created so far! I was amazed at how beautifully they designed the website!
Congrats to everyone on publishing their first website and I hope they had fun creating it!
Thank you and stay safe!
Today, we discussed what analytics are, 4 types of Analytics and their usage on websites to create a better user experience for the visitors. We added an analytic feature in Wix on our website called 'Visitor Analytics' to view different statistics of data such as page visits, page view, etc.
After the lecture, we created a page called About/Contact page, where we added our introduction in detail, photos and a contact form.
On our last day tomorrow, we'll take a look at how we can protect our pages by locking with passwords, add buttons and finally, we'll present our website!
See you tomorrow. :)
Everyone created an amazing homepage! We moved on to creating a blog page. We've discussed what blogs are and how they are used to drive traffic to the website.
We learned how to add elements like titles and images to the page. I showed them how to change text colors and fonts to make our blog readable.
Tomorrow we will be learning how to add an ‘About You’ section which will consist of images, text, and other decorations. We will also be learning about analytics and how we can use them on Wix.
For homework, finish up your blogs!
Today, we discussed what a UX, Ui and responsive designs are and how they are important design considerations in creating a good website! We have taken a look at examples of websites with good design and bad designs. Everyone did a scavenger hunt and came up with great examples! Now that we learned what makes up a successful website, we will apply good designs to our own website pages.
For homework, once you have chosen a business for your website and think about colors, texts and graphics that speak well of your idea. And you could sketch out how you want to place your design elements on your page!
We had a great first day of Website making class! Today, we created our Wix accounts to get started and created our first domain name. We had a lecture about importance of Internet safety, different types of websites, and how colors and typography play a big part in designing a website.
Tomorrow, we're going to set up our homepage, discuss what UX and responsive designs are and good design versus bad design.
For homework, start thinking about theme or idea for your website and come up with a color palette and font styles!
See you all tomorrow. :)
