You all did a super job! :-) Please email me your URLs if you don't mind me peeking at your page <email@example.com>
I will also outline the important parts of the first
seven chapters this weekend.
Remember, your first assignment (due in Week 5) will incorporate all the elements from those chapters.
Step-by-step reminder on using Tripod:
Every site planner has to consider the MAP . . .
and KEEP IT SIMPLE!
The Visual Elements of your Presentation:
Text - background does not interfere, large enough to read-but not too big, clear hierarchy (use graphical elements to break up large blocks of text--like an outline)
Color - use browser safe colors! Audience matters - brainstorm colors that appeal to certain age groups
Navigation - buttons always available and easy to use, frames not too confusing, large site should have an index or sitemap (search feature is nice)
Graphics - do they hurt your site or help your site? Always use alt tags (don't forget the visually impaired can still "read" your page)
Speed - check your download time (keep page and all elements around 50KB). Again, audience matters (speed of older computers/home modems, browser type and screen resolution)
Every web page in the site should look like it belongs there--use repetitive elements (color, buttons, fonts, for example) that carry throughout the pages.
