School webmasters' page

What's this all about?

School webmasters are a natural online community and we have the Internet to help us collaborate on our successes and failures around the world.  We should be able to share some ideas that will help our schools.

This page has two features:

1.  The discussion bulletin board / forum is in a question and answer format.  You post a question (it doesn't really have to be a question).  You post an answer (it doesn't really have to be an answer either.)  You can post in HTML if you want to include links.

If you want to be notified of new bulletin board postings, you can add an email alert.  An alert will also allow you to follow the discussions by email.   Click here to add an alert.

Some school networks filter out forums like these.  So you may have to visit the Webmasters' Forum from home.  You can find the discussion topics below.

Forum Admin page.

2.  Add a related link allows to you to post a link to your school site and other useful links that may be of interest to the school webmaster community.

Thanks to greenspun.com for the forum and link services.
