Today's Atmosphere

We are professionally relaxed in SummerTech classes!
  • Get up and move around when necessary.
  • There will be a break, but if nature calls... please answer it!
  • Snacks, coffee, and water available at any time.
  • Place phones on vibrate mode.
  • Don't miss a call... but take it in the hall.
  • Keep noise and talking to a minimum during class time... Just like your classroom, everyone is here to learn and some folks need some peace and quiet.
  • We won't be getting out early. Note: If you must leave early, do it!! Please understand your certificate will not reflect the full 3 hrs.

Config is not a place for lots of information. It's a place for you to name your class, give a quick encouraging message, or to quickly identify your subject area.


It's located under the black District links bar.

It's located above your editing buttons.


Title: ALWAYS your teacher name. (Ms. Teacher, Mr. Teacher, Coach Teacher, Dr.)

Editing Your Page

Editing Your Layout

Decide how you want your page to look.

Do you want information to fit across the whole page (100%)

Do you want information to fit across half the page (50%)

Try different options.

T-Split A (50/50)

Your page will take on the "idea", not shape, of the capital T. Decide how many widgets you want to take up 100% across the top of your page. Any widgets down below can take on the 50%/50% width. You can have as many of either as you want.

Adding a Widget

Widget is a term used to refer to an element or small application that is capable of displaying information. It allows a user to interact with an application.


YOU are the user. YOU will interact with the application to add YOUR information to the screen. Widgets can be dragged and arranged around the page to fit your needs.


Most of your widgets will probably be blank "Text Boxes" that interact with you like word processing software would. Edit often allows you to change your font, colors, alignment, add tables, add pictures, add links, etc.
