I'm a new teacher who is now teaching Dreamweaver. I need a class project for high school students that would go well with working on background color and text color. Any ideas? I had them pick a college and give me information from the colleges, but need one more.

I would recommend searching the AEE - members have shared really great resources! Additionally have you looked at the Adobe's Digital Design curriculum? It is a project-based curriculum - here is the CS6 version ( For CC version we went a bit further and within each project created smaller activities. Perhaps using these activities would help you teach working with background and text color: Getting Started with Dreamweaver, Inserting Content in Dreamweaver, Design Principles, and Analyzing websites.

When I try to download the file Digital Design CS6: Foundations of Web design I get the file for Digital Video: Foundations of Video Design and Production. I cannot seem to find the file for Foundations of Web Design anywhere. Any help would be much appreciated.

It downloads as a 9.9MB file and when opened it is a one page document with this information: "To view this PDF portfolio, please save this file to your desktop and open with Acrobat 9 or Adobe Reader 9, or later. And a boxed dialog link to "Get Adobe Reader Now!

Where are the more correct links than these on this page?
