For this course we will be working on creating a functioning Website on the topic of your choosing. You will be creating a single site that is viewable on a desktop/laptop as well as on mobile devices. Your work begins in Week 1 by defining the kind of site you will create.
As the quarter progresses you will build on your concept, adding more elements to the site as each new topic is covered.
To help you frame your ideas, here is a list of requirements for the site:
Once you begin to write your pages in HTML, please add the following to a comment in the <head> of your work:
Name, date, week #, class with section, and campus # (i.e. CIS273001VA016)
Always zip your work into a single folder for uploading to Blackboard. You’ll want to keep each week separately so that you can review earlier iterations of your site in case you want to revert something back based on feedback from your professor.
Due Dates and Grading: This project is designed to give you a realistic experience in design; as such, you will be expected to participate in making tweaks and iterating your product and design as necessary. Assignments are due within the week they are assigned; however, you may have up to two weeks to work with your professor to make suggested/required adjustments—this is up to your professors’ discretion and is not guaranteed. Be aware: Not completing a portion of the assignment means that you will not be able to receive feedback and therefore cannot tweak things, and that portion of your grade will remain graded as “unacceptable.”
ASSIGNMENT 1: PITCH DECK
Due in Week 2 and worth 50 points
You have been hired to create a Website. In this assignment, you will begin to gather the necessary information to complete the work and present your ideas to your client.
You will need to answer the following questions:
You may submit this in multiple formats though a pitch deck (PowerPoint is highly recommended; extra points if you would actually like to create a presentation in a video device or software of your choosing that you can upload to YouTube or similar online easily accessible hosting service. Note: Your instructor must be able to access your video if you choose this option. Prior coordination is needed to ensure your instructor will be able to access your video). You’ve been hired, but remember you still need to show off how awesome you are.
