The World Wide Web continues to grow at
a tremendous pace, and while much of what is posted each day
is very well done, too many web sites are poorly conceived, difficult
to navigate, or just boring and redundant. Below is a list of
sites designed and written by students who have worked to develop
sites that are useful, persuasive, and easy to navigate.
Many of these students had never written HTML before; some
were very new to the Internet; all worked hard to explore this
new concept of writing on the Web, and did so within a span of
just a few weeks. I am very proud of what they have done.
Each site involves different purposes, audiences, and content
areas. As you surf through these sites, note how the different
design criteria impact the site visually, functionally, and hypertextually.
