University and College Home Pages - Survey
July, 1996. The top fifteen schools are listed below and each has
received at least 15 votes. Schools with the most votes are listed first.
I am temporarily unable to take additional nominations, but look for a new
survey within the next couple of months. You may also want to take a look
at a final
class project done at Columbia University's Teachers College which
surveyed over 450 school home pages.
Note that the comments people seem to make most when nominating a homepage
include the following characteristics:
- Attractive, yet limited graphics.
- Easy to find information. In particular people seem to want to be able
- Admissions information
- Alumni information
- Campus Maps
- Email directories
- Information about the surrounding community
- Research and Departmental Programs
- US Postal Address
- Short pages. If a user needs to scroll down the page more than once,
you might want to consider breaking the information down into several pages.
