Subject: Course Home Pages
I would like to consult the collective experience of our list about
constructing useful web pages specifically for Shakespeare courses.
I will be teaching an upper level course on Shakespeare's later plays
this term and I plan to construct a home page for the course. I'd like
my page to be more than just a syllabus on the web. I am looking for
models of effective Shakespeare home pages as I begin to construct my
own site. I have searched through numerous course web pages already, but
as Benjamin Sher's recent post about his Shakespeare Index indicates,
there is quite a bit of material out there to look through.
And so I am appealing to the members of our list to ask for their
favorite course web pages. More than just syllabi on the web (my
syllabus is pretty much complete now, I think, and I am pretty sure I
will be able to put it on the web), I am looking for pages that offer
students effective starting points ("portals") for supplementing their
reading, pages that have made effective use of message boards, or course
pages that have attempted something innovative. I hope people won't be
shy about sharing their own course pages.
Many thanks in anticipation.
