  16. What I Learned I understand the concept FTP, but it didn’t always work. I learned (a little late) that the web pages were repetitive. The same information occurred on many different pages, and I should have just cut and pasted the information once I typed on the Teacher index page. I also learned that each folder had a main page, the index page, for that folder.
