Good practice of web design is expected – e.g. appropriate navigation, a good writing style for the web, well-thought out design to make material easily read on screen, and appropriate fonts and colors. The home page should be index.html.
One of the pages (references.html) should contain accurate and detailed information about the sources of information (contents and images) used in the web pages. It is expected that the references be accurate and complete and follow an appropriate format.
Your website project must follow the hierarchical structure and file naming conventions given below. Your marks will be deducted if you don’t follow this structure in your project.

Discuss the things that went well on the site, the things that you found difficult, things you would change if you could do it again and what your group did on the project and how each of the group member personally contributed to the project.
Remember, unlike some of the other papers we have done in class, this is an actual essay, not a rough designs or notes. Pay attention to grammar and spelling.
