Oxford College of Emory University
The Oxford College site, like many colleges, has the challenge of needing to support diverse audiences: * Prospective students - this site sells the college * Current students - where to get information about services, departments, organizations, gateway to intranet applications (OPUS, custom applications) * Faculty/Staff - information, but also a gateway to a number of intranet applications * Alumni - latest happenings, opportunity to donate We are preparing to reogranize the site as well as redesign the home page, secondary pages, and tertiary page designs. We want to focus on a easier navigation scheme, and a design that is easy for content providers to update (using Contribute) without intervention from the Web master. Thanks for your help

Ann Foundation: A Non Profit Volunteer Organization Serving Children with Disabilities Worldwide
The Ann Foundation site exists to create greater awareness of the scope of educational services and training offered by the foundation to organizations and individuals serving children with disabilities. We recently redesigned the site to improve navigation and present more clear information about the nature of our specific projects. Please let us know if the site communicates our purpose and projects effectively and if usability issues such as navigation are on target. We also previous lacked images and have tried to integrate more photos of the children that we work with into our site.

This is a middle-school web site for the school community.
This site serves our school community--parents, teachers and students. I've worked over the last five years to make this user friendly and easy to use. I welcome comments about its layout ease of use.

Reviewing Web Sites

One designer recently said

"You learn good design by looking at bad design."
... another states
"You learn good design through the works of others."

Both of these are correct -- but only to a certain point. We believe that you learn good design through the works of others only when you make an effort to actually evaluate the work and state why you think it works or doesn't work. Only then do you actually make it part of your knowledge-base. We're all born with the same set of tools. Those tools you develop and 'grow' are the ones that you use for life -- the effective ones.

If you find a site you like, make an effort to state why you like it. If it doesn't work, state why -- regardless of whether or not you tell the rest of us about your feelings. Just do it!
