Syllabus


WEEK 1


Week One: Introduction



Welcome to the Web Design for Everyone Capstone!!! It really is my intention to make sure that everyone who completes this capstone will have a product they are proud of. The challenge is that "everyone" is actually a very diverse group of people, each person coming in with different skill sets and interests. So in this course you will pick from one of three portfolio options to complete. The goal of this approach is to help students self-select into appropriate peer groups.

Students will submit wireframes for a multi-part online portfolio. The topic of your site is your choice, but you will be expected to fulfill a small checklist of requirements with respect to the amount of proposed content and the variety of HTML5 tags.

WEEK 3


Week Three: Review and Preparation Phase



This week you will continue to review your fellow students designs. Feedback will be based on layout, proposed content, and accessibility. The goal is that these peer reviews will inspire you to attempt something more on your site (or provide the feedback that lets you know you may want to scale down your own expectations.) You will begin to create the content of your site as you wait for the reviews of your project to be created.
