The power of design is being able to harness what seems to be impossible and build upon simple concepts that enable the mind and body to capture the essence of the work of art. ~ Mr. Matthew Pate, Tech. Production (Miami Arts Studio 6-12)

Student Domain Requirements

*All MAS Tech Production Students are required to have their own purchased domain name and web hosting platform. Github will no longer be used. 

  1. PURCHASE YOUR NAME - students please make sure you own your domain name. The cost is minimal if acquired through Go Daddy. Websites will need to be uploaded from your home to your domain. It will now be your responsibility.
  2. ACQUIRE WEB HOSTING - You will need to acquire a hosting plan through a provider. Go Daddy tends to be the easiest and secure. More will be explained in class.
  3. INSTALL AN FTP CLIENT - An FTP client (FileZilla) will need to be installed to in order for you to upload from your location. We will try to upload from class, but most likely it will be blocked at the initial start of the year. More will be explained in class.

What sets MAS Tech. Production apart from everyone else. 

This program encompasses the willingness of a young mind to want to learn digital design techniques and applications to better serve future job career choices.

Students learn through real hands-on focused projects that are curriculum and application driven. This allows students to directly see their work in action in and around the school.

Students leave high school with industry certifications that are not just given, but earned through hard work and actively achieving within the advanced digital environment.

Mobirise gives you the freedom to develop as many websites as you like given the fact that it is a desktop app.

Publish your website to a local drive, FTP or host on Amazon S3, Google Cloud, Github Pages. Don't be a hostage to just one platform or service provider.

Just drop the blocks into the page, edit content inline and publish - no technical skills required.
