Defining your site in Dreamweaver is the first step to creating your online learning application. Properly defining your Web site enables Dreamweaver to offer features such as automatic link updates and enables you to view and organize all the files in a Web site. You create a Web site definition for each project you work on in Dreamweaver.

This chapter describes the definition of a local site, a group of Web pages stored on your hard drive. The local site is your private version of a Web site containing the Web pages you’ll edit and create with Dreamweaver. Chapter 16, “Safely Collaborating and Sharing the eLearning Site,” describes the definition of the remote site, the location where you share files with others. You don’t need to create the remote site definition until you’re ready to share files with team members or put your files out on the Internet for the public to view.

In this chapter, you will understand the following:

  • How to set up a local site

  • How to view and export the site map

  • How to use design notes

  • How to display data stored in design notes in the Site window
