PSY 496 Week 5
For your Final Project, you will create a website that showcases the skills you have gained throughout your psychology program. Your website will consist of the following elements: a homepage, a literature review, expert opinions, résumés, a case study, and a list of pertinent websites. Each of these sections will be its own tab on the website. When complete, you may choose to use this website after graduation as a means to showcase your abilities to potential employers and/or graduate schools.
To begin, review the elements required for each section of your website below.
Next, visit the Wix.com website to familiarize yourself with this technology. Scroll down on the webpage and click the pink arrow to view a quick tour video of the website platform. Note: This site is best viewed using either the Chrome or Firefox web browsers. Refer to the Wix.com Quick-Start Guide for step-by-step instructions on setting up your website.
If you experience any technical difficulties, please visit the Wix Support Center. The technical support offered through your Student Portal will not be able to assist you with the Wix website. When you are ready to create your website, click the Start Now button to register and begin building. If you are unable to utilize the Wix platform to complete this assignment and you have already watched the tutorial, read through the Wix.com Quick-Start Guide, and contacted the Wix Support Center, please contact your instructor.
It is highly recommended that you complete any and all written work in a separate document first and then cut and paste the required content into your webpage. This will allow you to edit and save your work separate from the website, should anything occur which causes the website to fail. Additionally, you will be able to work on your content without having to remain connected to the internet and it may be easier to develop and edit your content in Word, prior to publishing it on your website.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
