Over my year of designing web pages, I have had many different sources of inspiration. Being a self-taught webmaster, most of my experience comes from extensive hours hunched over my keyboard surfing the net. In doing so, I came to have a better understanding of the dos and don'ts of the Internet. The criteria I developed is a summary of those hours of surfing assembled into one neat package.
Over the past year, I also found myself diving into random HTML guides and books. One book I found helpful, though a little complex for the beginner coder, is Web Publishing Unleashed -Stanek, W.R.. (1997). Web Publishing Unleashed. Indianapolis, IN: Sams.net Publishing. It looked at pretty much everything one would need to know and understand in order to build a good website. I also found some helpful articles pertaining to the Internet in Educational Technology journal. Here are some of those references for your perusal:
Doherty, A. (1998). The internet: Destined to become a passive technology? Educational Technology, 38(5), 61-63 El-Tigi, M. & Branch, R. M. (1997). Designing for interaction, learner control, and feedback during Web-based learning. Educational Technology, 37(3), 23-29 Kaufman, R. (1998). The internet as the ultimate technology and panacea. Educational Technology, 38(1), 63-64 Rakes, G. (1996). Using the internet as a tool in a resource-based learning environment. Educational Technology, 36(5), 52-56. Wei, C.-L. (1991). Hypertext and Printed Materials: some similarities and differences. Educational Technology, 31(3), 51-53.In completing this section of my site I also visited other website evaluation sites. Here are those addresses.
