Introduction

VCE Information Communication Technology

Develop, Maintain and Evaluate a Website.

Tom Mckenzie

I have been asked to design, implement, maintain and evaluate a website for the I.T, Computing and Office services department in Filton college. The website will be based on the course VCE ICT and is to be established on the Filton college Intranet. The ‘look’ of the website must tie in with the Filton college corporate identity and hold the corporate logo.

Purpose of the Website

Filton college need a website for the students to gain an understanding of what the course is like. The students will get access to the course details through the college Intranet and can discover if it’s suited to their interests. The website will go into much more detail about the course such as notes, assignments etc.

The audience of the website will be students of Filton college. The websites will be aimed at these people and no one else. The interest in the website will either come from reading the Filton college Prospectus, word of mouth or general curiosity. I can’t repeat the information the students got from the prospectus as that would just bore them and make them lose interest.

A meeting with the Course Leader (James McNab) was held and we asked him a few questions.

Middle

The same cohesion can also be obtained with the sue of shared borders rather than frames but these do not scroll independently of the main section, being part of the same page.

The website will be organised and designed into frames which split up the page into different sections for user-friendliness.

Here are some examples:-

Test Strategy

Each page and every link will be tested as the web site is developed. Some of the advanced features of the website will not work until it is published so this will be done relatively early on a development.

Further tests will be carried out using different computers with lower specification hardware and different browsers e.g. Netscape, Internet Explorer 5 and earlier versions of each.

The user will be asked to log on to the published Web site and comment on any difficulties experienced, features that did not work as expected or additions that they would like made.

Conclusion

I hid my cell borders to make the page less clustered. I did this by:_

Right clicking the table and selecting Table Properties.

I reduced the border size to 0 and clicked OK.

The one thing the current web site has that our design doesn’t Graphics, images and pictures.

To insert our logo it was fairly simple:-

I selected insert, Picture, From file.

Hotspots

I had to create a hot spot for my maps, so that the users could click on it and get a better view of it through a different window.

I clicked on the rectangular hotspot as my maps were rectangular.

I dragged the rectangle over my image and a window appeared asking me fro which document it wants to be assigned to.

Uploading

FTP: A communication protocol that makes it possible for a user to transfer files between remote locations on a network. This protocol also allows users to use FTP commands, such as listing files and folders, to work with files on a remote location.).

If your Internet service provider (ISP) has the Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions or SharePoint Team Services from Microsoft installed, you can publish to the Web server using HTTP. Otherwise, you can use Microsoft FrontPage to publish your web site to an FTP server.

The team gave the website over to a professional to load up onto FTP software.

You can find our website on the Fulton college Intranet.
