Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer

Well, my students have successfully created a small module of their own using Visual Web Developer Express and have placed them on their page so we are now continuing our learnign of dotnetnuke.

We now review the dotnetnuke accounts that can be created. In addition, we'll review the roles of the administrator and the host.  The students will learn to modify the css that comes with dotnetnuke. They will also create a new portal for the student website they will be creating in a week.

Next week will learn about skinning the portal and modules. Students like to create their own look to their site and will enjoy learning how to do that.

The student portal reviews all lessons that we reviewed and gives them the opportunity to skin the portal to whatever they want.

Best advice I can give is to make sure all of your students are working on the same lesson. I do have a few who continue to move ahead which is good. Second advice is to be flexible. For example, some students for some reason could not get their portal loaded. I knew what they accomplished so I told them to simply install another dotnetnuke site and just work on the page that they were working on instead of spending the time to do everything over again.
