A neophyte constructs a web site: Lessons learned

Internet and Higher Education Volume 1, Number 1, ISSN 1096-7516 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


Lessons learned constructing a web site are reviewed to help both neophyte and experienced site developers. Neophytes will be exposed to opportunities and pitfalls: the experienced developers may benefit as they revisit what have become routine decisions. Goals and audience of the site are defined first. These definitions then guide discussion of the following topics: review of other sites; organization or structure of the site; technical choices; adapting to others′ choices, and best use of links. The article ends by stressing the need for evaluation of the site and modification of the site in response to the evaluation.
