You will develop an Interactive Instructional Web-based Lesson using a web authoring/design platform (such as Google Sites, SoftChalk Cloud, WordPress, or Weebly, etc.) that incorporates all multimedia elements: video, sound, images, and text. Your interactive Web-based lesson must include the following: Presentation of Information: Your lesson must include at least 4 web pages. Include the following sections: introduction, presentation of information in the body, summary, and resources. Introduction: should state the goal and objectives as well as provide a brief overview of the lesson. Also, include a brief written introduction on the Home page to welcome the learners and guide them through how to navigate the lesson. Body of the lesson: should be presented on a separate web page and include a mix of pictures, text, step-by-step instructions, examples, or multimedia elements. It should incorporate evidence-based practices in lesson delivery and judicious use of instructional design elements. Summary: will conclude the lesson by summarizing what was learned and provide suggestions (and links) to resources where the learner can go to learn more about the topic. Resources: To avoid plagiarism, you must cite any resource (including text and pictures) you used in the creation of your web-based lesson. Your references should be formatted in APA format and placed on a Resources page at the end of your web-based lesson. Use BibMe or Son of Citation Machine to help you correctly cite your sources. Effective use of Multimedia: Include a minimum of three multimedia elements (ex.: text, graphics, video, sound, or animation) to convey your content. Navigation: Design an easy-to-use interface (use intuitive menus, frames, easy-to-understand icons, background colors and/or text to provide clues, etc.). Instead of putting all of the content onto one page, spread it out over several pages. This is very easy to do if you create your project in a WordPress blog, Google Sites, or Weebly. You may use the Web authoring platform of your choice (ex.: SoftChalk Cloud, Weebly, WordPress, Google Sites, etc.) to create the Interactive Instructional Web-based Lesson. Below are links to several free and for pay platforms. Use the links provided to learn about each platform. The tutorials are very user-friendly. Free platforms Weebly: [Recommended] If you do not have experience creating a website or web-based lesson, consider using the free online service provided by Weebly. It is easy to use and can help you create an attractive, professional interface for your lesson. Use the Weebly tutorials to get started. WordPress: [Recommended] WordPress is a free blogging platform, yet it is very robust and easy to use. It is a very easy platform to use for creating web pages.

People can work together on a Site to add file attachments, information from other Google applications (like Google Docs, Google Calendar, YouTube and Picasa), and new free-form content. Creating a site together is as easy as editing a document, and you always control who has access, whether it’s just yourself, your team, or your whole organization. You can even publish Sites to the world. The Google Sites web application is accessible from any internet-connected computer.” Access a beginner’s guide for using Google Sites.
