  45. 45. If you can use Word, you just create a regular documentwith the insertion of hyperlinks. (see a Word tutorial*) 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, 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.
