Activate aimed to develop a template to create thematic networks. A user friendly template and instruction set is being made freely available to download from the web. This package can be used by anyone who has minimal IT skills to set up their own, easy to maintain, portal and content thematic network. A thematic network is a group of sites of common interest content sites that are linked to a central portal site.

The subject area chosen to test the templates for the project is cultural heritage through the creation of a local history network. The content and portal sites, and the templates, are available on the web. All stages of the project are being documented to perfect the final template and instruction package. Reaction to the local history content sites, portal and template usage is being encouraged and recorded, so that lessons on layout and useful site construction can be learnt. The sites are being manipulated and improved according to the constructive criticism of users.
