Creating/Editing Your Teacher Webpage

To edit your teacher webpage:

Go to the MOC-FV homepage and select “Resources”, click on “Teacher” and then “Teacher Webpage” (see illustration below)

TeacherWebpage

Login with your school username and password.

Follow the colored links at the top of the page to edit the areas you wish.

Be sure to READ the directions on “Welcome Message” to successfully upload your photo.

To resize your photo:

Put a copy of the photo you want to use on your desktop.

Right click on your photo and select “Open With” and then select “choose default program”

ChooseDefaultProgram

 

Select the Paint program. (You may have to browse for it if you don’t see it in the list.)

Before clicking “OK” decide if you want the Paint program to always open that type of file. Check or uncheck the box “Always use the selected program to open this kind of file” based on what you decide.

SelectPaintProgram

 

When Paint opens your photo select the “Resize” option in the upper right corner of the Paint window.

Resize

 

You want the dimensions of your photo to be a maximum of 320 pixels wide or high. Click the radio button next to “pixels” and make sure “maintain aspect ratio” is selected.

ResizeAndSkew

 

Referring to the illustration above, I would change the vertical dimension to 320 since that is the larger number (longer side). Once that is changed, click “OK”. Your photo is now resized. DO NOT JUST CLICK SAVE!!!! (It will change the dimensions of your original photo!)

Click the DropDown arrow next to the upper left icon in the Paint program (see illustration below) and select “Save As”

SaveAsDropDown

 

Name your photo. Be sure to choose “jpeg” or “jpg” in the “Save as file type” pull down box and save it to your desktop. (Note: you will not be able to upload a photo unless it is in the jpeg or jpg format.)

To upload your photo:

Go back to your teacher webpage editing and click on the “Choose File” button located on the “Welcome Message” page.

Once you have chosen your photo, click the “Upload New Photo” button.

You should see your new photo. In order to save, click on the “Update Welcome Message” button at the bottom.

Notice that you can also delete your photo (“Delete Photo” button right under your photo.)

Final note: Please be sure all photos are a professional pose. (Nope, no Speedos!!) The best photos are a head/shoulders type.
