Day 2- Evaluating Web Pages

Designing my individual Web Page

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.?

Onto  the Web

Ok, so let's check a few sites to see if they meet these criteria - Remember to click on your back button to get back to this site. Fill out the form you were given to evaluate the sites you were assigned with your partner.
