Week Eight Outline

Tonight we'll work on our project proposal in class to get us started on the web analysis project. I can't recall where I left this--I guess I need to start writing this stuff down at my age--but I believe that last week you only vaguely looked at websites you might focus on. Now is the time to decide on something and build your proposal.

Week Seven Class Outline

Tonight we'll take a what I hope is a low-stakes midterm exam. That should fun--or at least interesting. :)

We have these other tasks before us tonight:

  • need to get oriented toward our final website analysis project,
  • make some more headway on our Rapidian articles,
  • discuss usability testing and content analysis--I'll provide an outline
  • write front page copy for our course websites, making use of the blank front page module.

Some videos on usability that I want to watch:
