Building & Managing Web Sites
Team Project



Each team of 3-4 students will construct and manage a realistic site on the class webserver that demonstrates use of good page and site design principles for optimal usability. Students will also need to follow a system development lifecycle and submit project documents over the course of the project. Teams can either build a real web site for a real client or develop an imaginary web site for a business, non-profit organizations, or governmental agency. Team members will need to take responsibility for meeting outside of class. Teams are encouraged to use FrontPage and the class webserver for development.
