Create a Website with Muse and Dropbox

Posted on Jul 13, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Jul 17, 2014

This is an interactive sheet of directions for students to create a website in Muse and use a Dropbox Public folder as the server. It is a great work-around for students who cannot afford website hosting, and it is a great introduction to Muse. There are no directions on how to use Muse. I teach InDesign before I teach Muse. Muse is very similar to InDesign, so the transition is not too difficult. I demonstrate Muse and then direct my students to seek out videos on The sheet contains assignment requirements, suggestions for content, and how to publish using Dropbox.  Also included is a rubric for the project. Finally, a quick, free solution for students to publish websites. In the past, their websites were never "live"- now that will change, and I am certain that their enthusiasm will change, too. I am collaborating with core subject teachers to have my students do one of the research projects as a website instead of a typed paper!

Two InDesign Projects

Posted on Jun 27, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Jul 7, 2014

For a current Photography unit called Retro Revisited I have decided two tasks, on practical, one theory which utilise InDesign. This should be read in conjunction with my Getting Started With InDesign activity. For the practical task the students submit their images as a booklet made in InDesign. They use 8 A4 pages. To work properly with our printing system I get them to submit their work as a PDF, which I then print and return as an 8 page stapled booklet (uses two A3 pages printed both sides and folded). This way they get hard copy and I get a digital copy for archives. I have provided the task outline that the students receive.  For the theory task they produce a three fold brochure for an exhibition by a photographer of their choice who works with toy/plastic/lomo cameras. They also produce a poster for the exhibition. Again I have included the task outline, as well as a template for a threefold brochure for InDesign designed to accommodate the fact that our printers all have a 5mm n... Read More

Introducing InDesign

Posted on Jun 27, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Jul 21, 2014

I have recently began to get students to make greater use of InDesign, and have collected some resources and activities to help with this. They will be using InDesign for both a Prac and Theory task in a unit of work, and have never used it before, so the challenge is how to get them started. There are some great videos on YouTube, and the links are in the Tutorial document. Combining these, with a basic run down and demonstration on how to set up a document and how to get started have proven very effective. The video on handling images is particularly useful as there are many ways to do this. The main issue is what to get them to lay out, and I came up with the idea of using a website about a photographer (or artist, musician, writer, historical figure etc) as the source. Remember this is really about learning how to manipulate text and images on a page so the content is not as important, the process is. In the example I have done I haven't edited the text other than remove footnote references etc, but a v... Read More
