Hyperlinks

Learn More About Hyperlinks and How They Work

Extract from https://www.lifewire.com/how-do-hyperlinks-work-2483287

A hyperlink is simply a link to some other resource. It uses a special kind of command that jumps you to some other content in your web browser, usually to another page.

Most web pages are filled with dozens of hyperlinks, each sending you to some related web page or picture/file. Search results are another easy way to observe hyperlinks; go to Google and search for anything, and every result you see is a hyperlink to the different web pages that show up in the results.

A hyperlink can even point you to a specific section of a web page (and not just the primary page) using what's called an anchor. For example, this Wikipedia entryincludes anchor links at the top of the page that point you to various parts of the same piece, like to this.

You'll know that something is a hyperlink when your mouse pointer changes to a pointing finger. Nearly all the time, hyperlinks appear as images or as underlined words/phrases. Sometimes, hyperlinks also take the shape of drop-down menus or tiny animated movies or advertisements.

No matter how they appear, all hyperlinks are easy to use and will take you to wherever the link was built to navigate you to.

Templates

Not everyone needs a team of web developers, programmers and graphic artists to build a website. For many people, a simple web presence is all that is needed.

Using website templates can be a fast, easy way to build a website for a small business or for personal use — and there’s a wide range of options available. Whether you’re looking for an online business card, a portfolio to showcase your photography or design, or a blog to share your thoughts, a template can save you time and money.

What are website templates?

A website template is basically a premade webpage — or set of webpages — that can be customized with images, videos and other style elements to create a complete website.

Often created by web developers, the template includes everything needed (i.e. HTML, CSS, and any other code required) for it to function. It simplifies the whole web development process, making it easy for people who have little or no programming experience to build their own websites.

Website templates are also used by bigger enterprises to present a large amount of content on standardized web pages. Whether for mass production or personal use, they can help shorten the time needed to go from idea to launch.

Types of online collaboration

Definition

type - a category of people or things having common characteristics


This syllabus dot point in the syllabus looks at the various groupings of tools and processes where people can work together across a network.

What is online collaboration?

Simply put, online collaboration lets a group of people work together in real-time over the Internet. Those engaged in online collaboration can work together on word processor documents, PowerPoint presentations and even for brainstorming, all without needing to be in the same room at the same time. There are many great online collaboration tools available, which can help your team accomplish its goals.

A web conference enables people to meet online in real-time. While presentations may be given and notes taken, a web conference is much the same as a face-to-face meeting in that it’s more about a discussion than working together on the documents being presented, for example. Online collaboration, on the other hand, involves a team working together, often at the same time, and on the same documents. [1]

Concept of responsive design

Definition


Responsive design is a specific term used to describe a method of designing and developing webpages to change what they look like depending on the screen they are being viewed on.

What is Responsive Web design?

Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behaviour and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation.

The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. [2]
