Easy to find and full of useful advice, the revamped Web Development page on the George Mason web has just been posted.
A product of the George Mason Web Team, a group of eight web-savvy people from all corners of the university, the Web Development page offers resources and poses questions for students, staff, and faculty to think about before designing a web page– What do you want your web page to do? Who will create your web page? Who is your intended audience?
Web Team member John Creuziger, manager of workflow and data warehouse services in Technology Systems, notes that the page was redesigned and targeted to all web page developers throughout the university, and changes were based on “what people are requesting and what they need.”
Revising the page also reflects the maturing nature of the Mason web’s presence, says Paras Kaul, Web Team member and coordinator of Electronic Publications. “Web technology is more sophisticated now,” she says, and new kinds of applications are being requested from a wider audience than in the past.
There are also new factors in web page development to consider, such as copyright issues and accessibility for disabled individuals, which the page addresses. For more information, contact Kaul at x38819 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
