Be prepared, next class, to talk about why you like the website for a presentation of five to ten minutes. Write and print out an outline, which you will hand in on Thursday's class (this is not a full paper, but an outline you can refer to in your presentation). Talk about:
1. The design of the site
You should be able to describe the use of:
d) the general layout
How do each of these elements serve (or undermine) the purpose and content of the website? What is the emotional or design quality of each of these elements? For instance, a site designed for children might use colors that are bright, vivid, and friendly -- with a font that appears playful or toy-like.
2. The navigation of the site
How it the site organized? How do you get from place to place? Is the content on the site easily accessible? Are there different navigation schemes on different parts of the site, or is it consistent across the site?
3. The functionality of the site -- what the site "does."
