Introduction

INTERNET COMMUNICATIONS MG2085A BUSINESS MANAGEMENT (COMPUTING) PROF: KEVIN J. LU AUTUMN 2003-2004 COURSEWORK 3: OLA HUSSEIN, CB02OOH2@BRUNEL.AC.UK 0201503 WEBSITE PAGE BY PAGE ANALYSIS Each page will be analysed in terms of content, information architecture and user interface design: ENTER SITE: a: Brunel University Logo: This logo, when clicked on takes the user to the Brunel Website: www.brunel.ac.uk. This logo appears on every page of this website, so that the user can at any stage during their visit to this website go back to the University website. This logo is part of the main template that I created to make this website. I based the colours in the website on the colours used in the logo so that there is a connection to the University website and the Business Management website as well. This is important as this, in real life would be linked to these websites. b: Title of the web page: In this page, the first page the user is confronted with, the title of this web page helps them to distinguish the university. The title of each page is at the top of the page, alongside the university logo, therefore, each page has a different title. ...read more.

This needs to be improved by erasing this button because it is not needed. b: This page is mainly aimed at welcoming the user to the website. It gives a summary about the module, and aimed to briefly describe what the Internet communications module is about. I use bullet points that I have made myself. It uses the same gradient colouring that is used for the top of each page in the site, so that it all looks more consistent. Lecturer Page: a: This page is about the lecturer of this module, Mr.Lu. First of all I have included his personal details that may be relevant to the user, such as his name, and contact details, so that the user has a means of communication with him. I have also included his website address. b: I have also included a picture of Mr.Lu. This, I think is a good thing, as it adds a bit more graphics to the page, and it livens up the page. c: Other information I have added about Kevin Lu are his academic references. Such as the modules he teaches, his special interests and contributions to publications. ...read more.

Conclusion

The other links all provide more information about the module content, as well as help with some of the topics discussed in lectures. CONCLUSION All in all, the useful thing about this website is that the navigation through the website is easy. There are buttons on each page which enable the user to go to any other page in the website. The layout and design of the website is consistent is not too crowded giving it a formal look. All the content of the website is relevant to the module itself and the University. However, there are two things that I think the website lacks. One thing is that it is too simple, more images need to be used, however, it is hard to include more images because they would be irrelevant to the purpose of the website, which is to write about the module. One other improvement that could be made is to have buttons or links at the bottom of pages that are quite long, so that the user does not have to manually scroll up the page, this would be helpful for pages such as the "Syllabus" page, when there is a lot of text to read. 2 1 ...read more.
