Websites

Google Sites

I created the first two websites linked below for classes I taught a few years ago, using Google Sites--a simple tool for creating a multi-page website with menus. One can use it to display images, powerpoints, documents, and the like.

East Meets West in American Art

The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia

Google Sites is easy to use, and free.

Fearrington Village Homeowners' Association

I helped to create, and was for years the content editor for, a website for Fearrington Village Homeowner's Association: FHA website. It was built using the Joomla Content Management System (CMS), a much more complex and versatile platform than Google Sites. I was the fearless assistant to the real brains of the operation, and the programming and database work was done by the webmaster, but I learned a good bit about Joomla for content creation and management and am currently using it as a platform for this website.

Fearrington Village Directory

The webmaster, Jim Brooking, and I led a team that produced the 2011, 2012, and 2013 editions of Fearrington Village Handbook and Directory. I list this under websites because Brooking devised a method by which the entire directory can now be updated, edited, and a pdf for printing created at any time by a push of a button, via the Joomla platform, using Prince for printing. 

I'm interested in the possibilities of merging print and web platforms.  I learned that formatting for a print book is quite different than formatting for an e-book because of paper.  A story for another day.....
