Course Description:

This course is about web site development and design. We will have three main tasks this semester. First, we will learn about web design, covering basic markup, page layout, navigation schemes, information organization, and site structure. Second, we will learn about basic concepts of information architecture. From these two main themes, we will arrive at an initial understanding of information architecture for the web.

We will then pursue our third task by focusing on the conceptual, technical, organizational, and social contexts that surround the development and maintenance of large-scale and complex web sites. When we are through, we will have a deeper understanding for the concept of information architecture and an appreciation for its use in the design of web-based information spaces.
