Tech Tip Tuesday: Learn some HTML

If you are getting into an online life you may have heard the term HTML well, it's time to learn a little. If you want to really spice up your comments on websites or just really get your blog to look exactly the way you want it it's very worthwhile to learn some simple HTML tags.

First of all lets define HTML and tags. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is just what it says a language used to markup hyper text. What is hyper text? It's the text used in web pages especially where it links to other sites or files.

The table below gives some quick examples of what you can do with HTML:

Use this Tag
Arches National Park<img
src="http://www.uen.org/utahnationalparks/images/arches2.jpg"> Use
the web address of your image to replace the one listed here.


<h1>heading</h1> The
h tags start with the
largest at 1 and go smaller with larger numbers.  These h or header tags also do more than just
make things big.  They also apply any formatting that is assigned
to that heading level.
UEN<a href="http://www.uen.org">UEN</a>

These are just some of the HTML tags you can use to spruce up your commments on blogs, your own web pages or even parts of your my.uen web page, UEN Lesson Plans or UEN Rubrics.

Welcome to Jorgie Learning

I really am learning and this blog is maintained both as a record of some of what I am doing as well as a place for me to train and teach others about creating an online presence. So please don't mind the dust. We aren't remodeling we are learning!

Visit some of my other blogs or the other blogs I find mildly entertaining for a more polished feel.
