Schoolwires Screencasts
Click here to get to our School website

Use the screencasts below to learn how to build your Schoolwires webpages.

Hints and Tips:

Please keep formatting consistent:
  • Use Lucida Sans
  • Use Size 2 (3 in some situations) font
  • Stay with black text - headings can be a dark green
  • Firefox will have a 'better' editor compared to Safari and is the recommended browser from Schoolwires
  • Pay attention to the 'TIME' given when you are posting something ie assignment. The Schoolwires 'internal clock' is set to Eastern Time - so, if you are trying to post something and it is NOT DISPLAYING go back and look at the 'post' time. Move it one hour ahead and you will see it display immediately.
  • If you look at **my page** you can see examples of the different 'types' of pages:
    • Assignment Pages
    • Link Page
    • Files and Forms Page (I have the Schoolwires 'How to add a link, file, image' PDF's as files on my page
    • PDF Display in a webpage - as opposed to a download (right now view this in Safari)
  • We will be uploading your VIP picture to your Welcome Page
