A Structured Approach To Teaching Web Development.
Harriger, Alka R.; Woods, Denise M.
This paper describes a structured methodology used in a World Wide Web development course, offered at Purdue University (Indiana), to build complete Web sites for local businesses; the methodology includes planning, analysis, design and development, usability testing, implementation, and maintenance. The Web site team project is then described, including the following components: (1) team profile/objectives; (2) company selection and client/Web site objectives; (3) project proposal; (4) site design and resources; (5) prototype I and company feedback; (6) prototype II and usability test results; (7) Web site presentation; (8) final documentation with team evaluation; and (9) individual evaluation. Based upon the written evaluations included with the final project documentation, students felt this project was the most valuable learning experience of the course. Furthermore, the positive relationship established with the clients made the project serve as a bridge between business and academe. (Contains 14 references.) (MES)
