Task 05

INTRODUCTION

The main aim of this task is to prepare a report for my website. The key to designing a successful website is to understand the needs of audience and reflecting those in design and also have to plan how to attract them initially and what would encourage them to revisit site again. While creating this web site, I have used Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML) as the basic language.

Hardware Requirements:-

32 VGA

128 RAM

Firefox version 3.0.

FEATURES AND ADVANTAGES

The features of my web site :-

This will encorage to people to learn juggling.

The web site is very colourfull and used some attractive pictures.

I have categorized the information under several sub headings.

Home page : I have used a video in my home page and have some attractive pictures too.

History : In this page I have included some of the information I have found about juggling History .

Gallery : In this page I have used some pictures and games.

Benefits : In this page I have mentioned the Physical Benefits,Mental Benefits and Health Benefits of juggling.

News : Users can register here and can receive latest news in world of juggling.

Learn : Users can learn how to do juggling.

I have also used Flash to animate some GIF images in order to draw attraction of the users.

I have used Photoshop to create the banner for the main theme and link buttons for above subheadings.

PROBLEMS

Had to adjust my computer resolution to 800Ã-600 while designing this web site. Users will also have to follow the same in order to view this web site properly.

Because we were asked to use the pure XHTML language to design, the codings were very lengthy and the whole process was time-consuming.

The alignment of the contents of the website was a major issue in my website where I had to use several <table> tags to adjust for the correct alignment.

I have used XHTML for the designing, this web page faces complications when attempt to open in a web browser other than Mozilla Firefox ,Internet Explorer, Safari etc… Some of the coding would not work properly, and some of the videos would also not play.

I had some browser issues where the .flv format video types didn't work and when I used the .avi format it gave the output only in internet explorer.

FUTURE IMPROVEMENTS

I could I have designed several prototypes and I could I have confirmed the actual website .Because of several prototypes we can select the most suitable one for the website and ignore other prototypes because our main aim is to encourage people to take up Juggling as a hobby.

If I have used CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) I could have done a better website as we can allocate spaces within the website very neatly and nicely without any problem. With CSS we can change the font style, color and face easily. With CSS we will not have any alignment problems. And with the use of CSS the users can have a fast accessibility and it is reliable as style sheets are usually stored in the browsers cache memory. And in CSS if we create a buttons and banner in one place we can use them anywhere we want within our site. And another major advantage is you don't need to use tables to adjust your content in the website and you can allocate the exact space you need for a content. With the use of CSS we can easily define font, font color, borders, spacing etc…

I could have designed and used a suitable background with a Juggling Image and I could have taken some pictures and publish them in my website as it gives all the authorities to me and the company. I could have used some animations to lighten up my website and put advertisements and external links. I could have used advanced graphical features with Photoshop and using flash.

SUMMARY

This assignment of Web Designing was based on Promoting Juggling. The assignment was done in 5 tasks;

Task 1 : Searching from internet and gather informations in juggling.

Task 2 : Designing the storyboard for the project

Task 3 : Introducing the Project Plan

Task 4 : Coding using XHTML .

Task 5 : Final report.

Through creating the website I have gained clear understanding of basic web design principles and the technologies that have been used to develop the web site. Also have gain knowledge how the web site could be improved if CSS is used.
