Online Topic (Due Week 6)

This weeks we need to address the aesthetics and design aspects of the Web Rating Form. You need to post on the class electronic bulletin board one criterion for evaluating the aesthetics and design of a Web page. Remember, each criterion has two parts: question and evaluation. For example:

Does the background color work with the font color? Difficult to read 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 Easy to read.

As before, to receive full credit each criterion must be unique. If similar criteria are submitted, the posted date and time determine credit.

Aesthetics and design criteria can fall into several categories. Dr. T. is open to any additions to the following categories that are a part of a Web page's aesthetics and design:
