Personal Website

Most students entered this class with little to no prior knowledge of coding. We spent the first half of the semester learning HTML & CSS which taught them how to build a basic structure of a website. This project required students to create a personal website showcasing the work they had completed in the program prior to taking this course.

The project assignment was to use various usability evaluation methods, starting with the heuristics method in a quest for feedback on the new College of Visual Arts + Design (CVAD) website. Considering each student in this course was familiar with this website, and knew other students in this program, they had a sense of what people were looking for when visiting the website.
