Why keep it simple?

  • I suggest you use a very simple page design and navigation for course sites
  • In my opinion, that means…

** a home page that acts as a course diary

** a contact form

** a page with downloadable files such as the scheme of work

  • the course diary should have carefully chosen links added each week at the top of the page so students can find extra material about what is freshest in their minds
  • Jakob Nielson’s Altertbox summarises the reasons
  • Frank Spillers disagrees with Nielson but his main gripe seems to be Jakob’s writing style
