6.2. Do we have to use pages.google.com?

6.2.1. Yes, because we cannot support training for all of the many different web authoring platforms available. Pages.google.com was chosen for speed, ease of use, and the ability to edit html.

6.3. Why do we have to build mind maps?

6.3.1. Mind maps help you to organize your thoughts so that you can write more compelling pieces of text. Your web pages need to be interesting to read; mind maps can help you write more compelling text. The mind maps help you prepare to write more interesting documents.

6.4. Why do we have to write questions about what we THINK will be on our final exams?

6.4.1. Answer: Preparing for important events by thinking through the procedures is a very useful and mature habit. Asking good questions before entering into a 'charged' event is wise. Here are a few activities that you will need to ask lots of questions beforehand that will help you succeed:

7. web site tips

7.1. If the pages are disconnecting then work on your mind maps and focus on the questions that will be on the final exam.

7.2. Type up your notes of what you've learned in a text editor or email and then when the pages are available again copy paste into your web page.

7.3. Make one page exactly the way you want all of your other pages to look and then duplicate it. Edit the duplicates with the information you want to add.
