A Checklist for Designing and Evaluating Physical Education Program Web Sites
Tucker, Michael; Hill, Grant
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v80 n9 p43-46 Nov-Dec 2009
Creating a physical education department web site is an excellent way to promote a positive image of the program, because students and parents are able to find important information and improve the lines of communication. A well-designed physical education web site can even encourage students to increase their physical activity levels. Improved web-site design capabilities and an increased understanding of the content that should be included on a school web site have resulted in more attractive, better designed, and more effective web sites, and physical education teachers should take advantage of these advancements in the creation or improvement of their department web site. This article provides a web site checklist that can help physical education departments to evaluate their current web site or create a new one. The checklist is based on the "4Cs design model," which consists of (1) content, (2) control (navigation), (3) consistency (readability), and (4) corroboration (accountability). (Contains 1 figure.)
