BUILDING AND MAINTAINING A WEBSITE ON-LOCATION

Participation in an international study program provides students with invaluable exposure to another culture and a multitude of academic and life experiences. Rapid advances in communication technologies now make it possible for students to share these experiences with their support network at home as they occur. The responsibility of doing so by means of a web page built on-location 1) motivates students to increase their awareness of, and participation in, their surroundings, 2) changes how students view their surroundings and activities in which they participate, 3) increases content learning, 4) extends the number of people involved in the international study program, and 5) results in a professional written and visual documentary. Faculty involved in supporting an on-location web site are advised to develop the web site prior to the trip, ensure the equipment and internet access can support the task, improve their computer literacy, and exercise flexibility and patience.
