Our first class with Sylvia aimed to introduce us briefly to how we can build our own websites to promote ourselves online. Throughout the forthcoming workshops we will look into content, methods, moving image, QR code and user experience.
Sylvia showed us quickly some of the tutors websites and explained on which platform they were made, she revealed a selection of different platforms so that we could choose for ourselves how we want our site to look. She complemented this with presenting to us Awwwards, a portfolio site for where some of the best websites are showcased.
Following this we looked through the sites that we could use to make our website to aid us in making an informed decision. She suggested using either Cargo Collective or WordPress and adding sites such as Instagram and Twitter to enhance them.
As this was only a short introduction session, Sylvia encouraged us to choose our platform to host our website and also collect some content for our website for the forthcoming session.
