Imagine your team is
hired to develop a Web site for a nonprofit environmental protection
organization concerned with air and water quality.
Turn in a short essay
of approximately 3 to 4 pages (single space) that includes the following
1. Identify the major content elements
(e.g., advocacy, local data on water/air quality, local chapters, impact on
fish, impact on human health, etc.) that you think should be presented on this
2. Think about how you might provide
navigation on this website using the four navigation schemes (topical,
audience-splitting, metaphor, and organizational structure). Develop a sketch
for EACH navigation scheme to demonstrate your design and explain each design
with some text.
3. Discuss which navigation scheme is the
most appropriate for this Web site
4. Develop a content structure tree for
the scheme that you choose as the most appropriate (The tree should have at
least three levels).
All the content of
the report must be neatly typed and printed. You may use Word, PowerPoint, Excel,
Visio or other tools to generate the structure tree. The only content allowed
to be manually drawn are the four design sketches. If you choose to manually draw
the sketches, make sure that your drawing is neat, detailed, and includes
necessary graphics. Points will be deducted for messy drawing.
