Create your own home page

Create your own Home Page

Due Dates:

Now that you've seen a bunch of WWW pages, it's time for you build your own. Your assignment is to create an HTML file named Welcome.html and place it in the WWW directory on your EECS UNIX account. Make sure that the file is there and the page is accessible from the web by the due date. Be sure to check that your page looks the way you want it to look by viewing your page using Netscape. You will also be required to electronically hand in the file Welcome.html using the UNIX turnin command (see below for details). Check our Common Errors in Web Pages page if you have a problem.

There are no constraints here: your network identity is in your own hands. Once you create your home page, the EECS Department will automatically make it available to the world. You are free to look as brilliant (or stupid) as you choose. Needless to say, however, you must steer clear of obscenity, slander, copyright violation, and the like. (See the EECS Department Computer Usage Policy statement for more information).

Your page must contain the following:

  1. a title (preferably your name)
  2. your name somewhere in the body of the page
  3. your e-mail address
  4. your day and time of your lab, with your TA's name
  5. two paragraphs about yourself (where you're from, what you're interested in, etc.). Remember a paragraph is a collection of multiple sentences.
  6. a picture of yourself (you can scan it in)
  7. another picture, grabbed from somewhere on the web, with a link to the page that you grabbed it from. Be sure to state the web site were you got this picture from, otherwise you could be accused of plagerism. These pictures should not be modified and do NOT grab copyrighted images.
  8. a link back to the EECS 101 home page.
  9. at least three additional links to other Web pages on the Internet reflecting your interests

Grading is straighforward. It will be out of a maximum of 50 points.

One or more misspelled words will also cost you five points. If your page is not accessible, you will receive zero (0) points for the assignment. This is the second easiest assignment of the course, and should be an automatic fifty points for you. Remember: we will not accept late assignments.

To electronically hand in your assignment using the UNIX turnin type one of the following commands depending on which lecture your are registered for:

 University of Illinois at Chicago
