  • 3. 1 Chapter 3: Create Sites A site is a page or a set of pages dedicated to a single subject or topic. It is similar to a website although sites created on your Frog VLE do no not appear on the internet. They can only be accessed by logging in to the VLE. Sites can be created for almost any purpose - subjects, activities, guides, notice boards, announcements or co-curricular activities. Many schools even allow students to build their own particular interest or cocurricular sites to help strengthen student engagement and promote publishing and management skills. Sites are created in the VLE and made available to others using the Share or Assign options. Sites can be shared to your whole school or to just a single person if required. Completed sites can be assigned to students as an assessment activity or as a read only reference or guide. Sites may be as simple or as complex as you require, containing multiple elements including text, files, videos or audio files. They may also contain up to the minute information such as notice boards or live RSS feeds. Interactive content can also be used. Widgets such as message walls, discussion forums and upload/download drop boxes can be used to engage, motivate and stimulate your students. Sites can also be downloaded from Pin-Point and instantly installed in your VLE. These are built by other schools in Malaysia and shared across the whole country via the MoE Repository. Once you become confident, you might like to share your sites with other schools by uploading them to the MoE Repository for other schools to use. This promotes best practice and helps less confident schools to quickly populate their VLE with exciting, innovative and engaging content. Happy building!
  • 4. 2 Site Options Please take a moment to think about how you would like users to access your site. You have 3 options: View Only Site: This site has been created to display information for a topic, course or cocurricular activity. A site to display School information such as events, courses or staff information for example. View and Contribute Site: This site is an interactive site that has been created for a topic, course or co-curricular activity. For example, you may create a site asking your students opinion on a particular topic. By adding a Forum or a Wall Widget, students can add their comments directly into the site for their teacher to evaluate. Edit and Manage Site: This is a site that has been created for a topic, course or cocurricular activity that certain students have access to edit and populate themselves. For example, you may create an environmental site to highlight the good work your school is doing reducing waste. You could give edit rights to a group of students to help you populate the site with content. They would then have access to edit the pages and create or update content. This method makes the site more involving for both teachers and students alike. Tip: To enhance student engagement ask your students if there are any sites that they would like to manage themselves independently. These can be set up by teachers and access given to a student to create and manage. These may be general interest topics such as on-line video gaming, book and film reviews or existing clubs within the school.
  • 5. 3 Creating a Site From the Frog Bar click on the Quick Launch icon then click the Sites icon. Once you have clicked on sites, you will see the main sites area in the Resource Manager. On the left hand side, are the 4 categories of sites; My Sites, Subject Sites, Co-curricular Sites, Templates and Other Sites. Tags are used to categorise the sites into the relevant category. My Sites contains all of the sites that you have created.
  • 6. 4 Subject Sites contains sites that have been tagged under the Subject category and have been shared to you. These are stored inside a folder, represented by a subject icon. Double click on the icon to access the associated subject sites. (Please note that subject icons are only displayed once a site has been created and saved for that subject area) Co-curricular Sites contains sites that have been tagged under the Co-curricular category and have been shared to you. Templates contains sites that have been tagged under the Template category and have been shared to you.
  • 7. 5 Other Sites contains sites that have not been tagged under a category and have been shared to you. My Library contains sites that you have downloaded from the FrogStore. Double clicking a site will copy it into My Sites.
  • 8. 6 To begin the building a site, click on the blue New Site button. This is located in the top bar of the My Sites area. Type in the name of your site. For this example we will be creating an online security site called Security Awareness but you can create your own. Enter a brief description for your site. For this example we will use: Your Guide to Safe Web Browsing. Click on the Next button to continue.
  • 9. 7 Choose a theme for your site. This gives your site its look and feel. We will be using the ‘File’ theme for this example. Now choose an icon for your site. This will appear next to the site name when displayed in the Sites area. We will be using the ‘Question Mark’ icon for this example. Click on the Next button to continue. Now you have the option to add tags to the site. Tags make searching for the site in the Resource Manager easier and quicker.
  • 10. 8 This is the ‘Add tags’ page. In here, there are three steps to complete; Category (1), Form Group (2) and Keywords (3). In the Category drop down menu there are three options available: Subjects, Co-curricular and Template. Select a category and click on the Add button. The chosen subject will apear underneath. In the Subjects drop down menu choose a subject for your site from the list. Click on the Add button to add the subject to the site. The chosen category will apear underneath. Select the Form Group for your site. For this example we have used D1. Click on the Add button to add the Form to the site. The chosen Form will apear underneath. Next, you have the option of adding Keywords associated with the site. This is useful when someone is searching for a site but doesn’t know the name. Try and add words that are relevant to what a user might type when searching. For example, for a science site we
  • 11. 9 could add ‘liquid’ ‘gas’ ‘solid’ ‘melt’ ‘freeze’ ‘ice’ ‘molecules’ ‘evaporate’. When a user uses any of these words in their search, the site will be included in the search results. Enter your keywords into the keywords box. For this example, we used security, online and safety. Then, click on the Add button. Click on the green Create Site button to continue. Congratulations! You have now created a new site. Note: The look of your site will be different to that shown if a different theme is chosen.
  • 12. 10 Changing the Site Layout To change the layout of your site you must first click the Edit button on the left of your screen. This will release the Content Panel. The Content Panel contains three options tabs. They are Layout, Settings and Widgets. Click on the Settings tab. In the site Settings, you can change the name, theme, and tags of your site. You may retain the settings if you do not wish to make any changes Click on the Layout tab. The Layout settings change the number and position of the Layout Boxes on your page. Click on the 3 Boxes button then select the last layout as shown in the picture.
  • 13. 11 Your page should now look like this: Click on the Widgets tab. Widgets can be dragged into the Layout Boxes on your page to add content such as text, videos and images. You will now see all of the Widgets that are available to you. Each Widget is identified by its unique name and icon. Adding Widgets For this example we will be using the Media and Text Widgets to create our site. Select the Media Widget and drag it into a Layout Box on your page. Make sure the layout box turns blue before you release the Widget.
  • 14. 12 You should now see the Media Widget in the Layout Box. Double click on the Layout Box to view the settings for the Media Widget The Media Widget can accept image, video or audio files.

Once uploading is complete the status bar will turn green. Click on the Done button to finish.
  • 15. 13 You now have an image on your page. You have the option of selecting the size of the picture in the media setting. The 3 options are Large, Medium and Small. In this example we have selected Large. Click Save Changes to save your site. Adding a Text Widget The Text Widget is used to display text within a site. Large amounts of text can be copied and pasted into the text box from any source i.e. from word documents or websites. Select the Text Widget and drag it into the Layout Box directly underneath the image. Make sure the Layout Box turns blue before you release the Widget.
  • 16. 14 Double clicking on the Layout Box displays the settings for the Widget. Enter the text you would like to display into the text box in the Content panel. First, highlight the text to be formatted. Then click on the formatting buttons. For example, select the title and click on the B icon to bold the text. Change the size of the selected text using the Font Format drop down menu. Highlight the text to be changed and click on an option from the drop down menu. You can also change the font using the Font Family drop down menu. Highlight the text to be changed and click on an option from the drop down menu. Click Save Changes to save your page.
  • 17. 15 Naming Pages By default the active page is named New Tab. To change the tab name you must be in edit mode. Click on New Tab to highlight the text. When the text turns white with a blue background it is then ready to edit. Once the text is highlighted enter the name of your page. For this example we have used the title ‘Introduction’. The text will now be replaced by the word ‘Introduction’.
  • 18. 16 Adding Pages Now we are going to add more pages to the site. A site may have multiple pages each with their own access tab. To add more pages to your site click on the + sign to the right of the ‘Introduction’ tab. Enter the name of the page by double clicking on the New Tab text. Enter the title of the new page. For this exercise we are using ‘Security Tips’. Your site now has two pages. You must click on a specific tab to view or work on the page.
  • 19. 17 Adding a Video We are going to add a video to the new Security Tips page we have created. Click on the Security Tips tab. The page should not yet contain any content.

Site templates are a great way of re-using a site with a particular structure for you, or others, to begin adding further content. Remember, after creating a site template, just like any site, you will need to share it before it is visible to other users.
