You must present your final project by demonstrating it in the classroom to your instructor and your classmates or you will lose partial credit for the assignment.
this project, we will be adding some interactive elements
to your web page. Specifically, you need to incorporate

that are available to web designers like yourself. All
you have to do is insert the code into your pages and
perhaps moidfy it slightly in order to meet your needs.

want to read an article or two to get an idea of what
you can do with these tools. Here is a good one from

this project, we will be adding some rollover images.
Specifically, you can use an image editor to create
two versions of a button or a navigation bar: one representing
the button "at rest" and another version of
the button that will be displayed with the mouse is
"rolled over" the image. You can do this with

the final project, you need to create a web site that
meets the following parameters:
This is another
opportunity to be creative and explore your limits.
You will design a web site which consists of a minimum
of 15 web pages, one home page plus 14 supporting pages
in whatever web structure (hierarchical, linear, web/chaos,
hybrid) best supports the content of your page.
This web site should NOT
be a personal web site in the nature of (Hi, I'm
Barbie/Ken and these are my dogs/ cats/ cars/ clothes/
toys/ hobbies/ whatever) It can be a web site
on a topic of personal interest, a web site for a hypothetical
business, or a web site for an actual business or non-profit
organization. It must include the following elements:
of 15 pages (more if you use frames in constructing
either an image map, or graphic images (buttons)
for navigation links
e.g., something more than a simple page counter.
home page of the site must be named index.htm
- A mailto link and/or
if the page is for a business (address and phone)
and business hours
- A mention that the
page was created by you in partial completion of
the requirements of this Web Design class and a
hyperlink to school's home page
- Hyperlinks to external
web pages that are realted to your project or topic
- Appropriate use
of Headings, fonts, color, text effects (bold, underlined,
italics), background colors or images
- Use of Cascading
Style Sheets to define at least font, headings,
- Appropriate use of
graphics (at least one per page. You cann't count
a graphic used as text to meet this requirement).
- Title tags which
are descriptive of the page's contents, anchor tags
to aide in navigation (especially on pages over
a screen in length -- Return to Top links).
- Links to other pages
in your web site and subsequently links from those
pages back to the home page.
- At least one web
form which contains either
- a mailto back
to your email account when the form is submitted
- or the use of
to manipulate the input from the form
Your grade will be based
on the following elements:
-- does it do what it set out to do? Is
the content of high quality? Is it's meaning clear?
-- is it aesthetically pleasing?
-- Is it an original idea.
Efficiency -- is it easy to get around in the
page and find what I need?
