Evaluating Web Sites


Look at some designing elements -- What makes a good web page?

We are going to check out some web pages but before we start lets talk about some criteria that professional web designers use..........

Is content organized and structured?

Is it readable? Is text the right size? Does it contrast with the background?

Does it have a consistency of colors and fonts?

Do graphics load in a reasonable amount of time?

Can it be seen with different browsers? Even older versions?

Can it be seen by viewers with special needs -- vision or hearing impaired, etc.?

Does it meet your lesson criteria? (Motivating , Meets Outcomes, etc., Interactive?)

Is it an efficient use of technology?
