Making Course Home Pages

There are many different ways to produce a course home page. Here we identify three different approaches.

The construction and maintenance of course home pages can be time consuming and expensive

  • The manual approach

    • Every page and every link is constructed by hand

    • Too time consuming

  • The copying approach

    • Pages are constructed by copying an example or template

    • The author is in touch with too many details

    • Hard to maintain

  • The abstract approach

    • The essential informations and relations are described as cleanly as possible

    • The pages are generated from the essential information

    • Makes it possible to separate stable and less stable course home page properties
