    Web sites are swiftly becoming, and in some cases are already, the preferred media choice for information search, company presentation, shopping, education, gaming, socialising, and much more. In this day and age, where visual symbols play an increasingly important role in our day to day lives, the design, content, and function of web pages, play a pivotal part in influencing the meaning and value of information. The meaning and value of information can be worked out by a few simple questions; who is the author of this information? Who is the supplier? Why is it provided/what is its purpose? Who are the intended audience? What is the source? And finally, how current and accurate is it? The last two questions are probably the most relevant when it comes to the value, as if it were a secondary, out-dated, and inaccurate source, it would not be very valuable. The terms design, function, and content must be looked at and defined to answer this question. Design of a web page mainly refers to how the page looks to the user and the layout of it as well. Whereas function is all about how the website works, whether it is easy or not for the user to navigate around the site or whether or not links and images work on the site. Finally, content is the text, images and other elements that make up the core of the web page. In this essay we will be looking at issues ranging from the opportunities the web provides us with to present information, to the challenges that are created when information is displayed online. In addition to this, we will also be looking at issues such as how we are able to establish the quality of our information as well as how the presentation and design of web pages influence the value of our information in particular.…

    HCI Website Design Report Abstract The aim of this assignment is to use human computer interaction techniques to produce a ticket selling website. I decided to produce an online cinema ticket booking system. The first stage was to evaluate existing cinema ticket booking systems. To do this I made a few comments on each of the websites I visited. I then produced 10 questionnaires and carried out statistical analysis on the results. I produced some usability heuristics and a low fidelity paper prototype. This was examined and revised after suggestions were made by a selection of users. The next stage was to design a high fidelity prototype using the information achieved from the above. The high fidelity prototype allows the user to select and book a ticket for their specified film. Introduction It is important to take a user centred approach to designing a website to ensure that the site is easy to use and follows usability heuristics. These are usually…

    Volkswagen of America, the world’s third largest car manufacturer, was repositioning its brand identity to expand their market presence and reach its celebrated enthusiast community. Volkswagen’s agency of record, Crispin Porter + Bogusky (CPB), envisioned a more interactive and engaging user experience that strongly reflected the brand’s personality. The VW team had several major goals for the new website - greater flexibility for marketing, reduced IT overhead and faster time to market with content updates. To coincide with the overall repositioning campaign, the website needed to be built in three months, which led to the first major obstacle: VW & CPB weren’t sure that their ideal technical solution could be implemented within the scheduled timeframe. Crispin P+B recommended Oshyn, Inc. based on its track record of rapid development success and proven technical expertise with similar clients.…
