OVERVIEW OF WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT


Content

ABSTRACT

 

Overview of website development is the skill of creating presentation of content (usually hypertext or hypermedia) that is delivered to an end-over through the world-wide web, using a web browser or other web enabled software. The intent of website development is to create a website – a collection of electronic document and applications that resides on a web server/servers. The website may include text, images, sounds and other contents and may be interactive. The project was in five chapters, which were carried out by critically, relevant literatures and the existing method employed.

CHAPTER ONE

 

1.0    A PROPOSAL BASED ON THE OVERVIEW OF WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT

1.1    BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY: 

With growing specialization in the information technology field, there is a strong tendency to distinguish between web design and web development. Web design is a kind of graphic design intended for the development and styling of objects of the internet’s information environment to provide them with high-end consumer features and aesthetic qualities.

This definition separates web design from programming, emphasizing the functional features of a web site, as well as positioning web design as a kind of graphic design. The process of designing web pages, web sites, web applications or multimedia for web may utilize multiple disciplines such animation, authoring, communication, design, corporate identity, human-computer interaction, information architecture, interaction design, marketing, photography, search engine optimization and typography etc.

Web pages and websites can be state pages, or can be programmed to be dynamic pages that automatically adopt content or visual appearance depending on a variety of factors, such as input from the end-user, input from the webmaster or changes in the computing environment (such as the site’s associated database having been modfied).

Accessible web design however permits an exception where tables for layout either make sense when linearized or an alternate version [perhaps linearized] is made available website accessibility is also changing as it is imparted by content management system that allow changes to be made to WebPages  without the need of obtaining web- based programming language.

    It is very important that several different components of web development and interaction can work together in order for the web to be accessible to people with disabilities. These components include:

-              Content – the information in a web page or web application

-              Web browser, media players, and other ‘user agents’

-              Users knowledge, experiences and in some cases, adaptive, strategies using the web.

-              Developers – designers, codes, authors etc. including developer with disabilities and users who contribute content.

-              Authoring tools – software that creates websites.

-              Evaluation tools – web accessibility evaluation tools, HTML validators, CSS validators, etc.    

 

1.2    AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT

The aims and objectives of the project is to show the development of website. It is essential to define the purpose of the website as one of the first steps in the planning process. A purpose statement should show focus based on what the website will accomplish and what the users will get from it. A clearly defined purpose will help the rest of the planning process as the audience is identified and the content of the site is developed. Setting short and long term goals for the website will help make the purpose clear and plan for the future when expansion, modification and improvement will take place. Setting a goal practices and measurable objectives should be identified to track the progress of the site and determine success.

Defining the audience is a key step in the website planning process. The audience is the group of people who are expected to visit your website. The market being targeted. These people will be viewing the website for a specific reason and it is important to know exactly what they are looking for when they visit the site. A clearly defined purpose or goal of the site as well as an understanding of what visitors want to do or fall when they come to your site will help to identify the target audience. Upon considering who is most likely to need or use the content, a list of characteristics common to the users such as:

-              Audience characteristics

-              Information preferences

-              Computer specifications

-              Web experience
