Publisher Comments:

Designed to help students apply the theories and techniques of effective technical writing to web-based communication, this new text offers step-by-step guidance for the web site creation process. One of the first texts designed to meet the needs of current tech writing programs, Creating Effective Web Sites is ideal both for introductory courses that incorporate some web assignments and for more advanced courses with heavier web emphasis. The web site includes a rich array of learning tools such as brief tutorials for common web page building software (FrontPage and Adobe Golive), summary checklists; evaluation sheets for student projects; exercises that reinforce stylistic consistency, revising text for the web, and solving problems; lists of online and print resources for web design; coverage of such technical information as HTML, FTPing files, and optimizing graphics; and guidance on creating proposals, creative briefs, requirements documents, site maps, visual design storyboards, visual design prototypes, and usability testing reports.
