  50. 50. How can you create something similar? If you can do basic word-processing, you can create Word files with hot links, Or create web pages, blogs and wikis. Here are some examples of how you can do it.
  51. 51. MAPS OF THE ANCIENT ROMAN WORLD   The Seven Hills of Rome – Map of the Seven Hills of Rome. Basic Rome City Topography – Topographic map of Rome. Maps of the Roman Empire -  Interactive map of the Roman Empire.  Map of the Roman Empire At Its Greatest Extent – A large file map of the Roman Empire in the third century. Maps of Roman Battles and Invasions – Find detailed maps of battles You can save a doc as a regular file. When students bring up that file on your classroom or lab computer, they can follow your selected links. You can also save these files to your web site in HTML*. The set of links I created for Ancient Rome (in my links) were done in this manner. Example below, If you can use Word , you just create a regular document with the insertion of hyperlinks . (see a Word tutorial*)
  52. 52. SBC Filamentality You create lessons with Hot Links for each activity. Then save them at Filamentality. You create a personal file with password for editing . Students then can access your lesson at Filimentality and use the Hot Links!
  53. 53. You can easily get a free web site! Google Sites Angelfire Each of these sites provide you with templates and tutorials. You could be up and running in minutes!

Support is built-in along the way through Mentality Tips . In the end, you'll create a web-based activity you can share with others even if you don't know anything about HTML or serving web pages.
