This book isbased on the premise that the principles that have defined good communication design in the pastapply equally well to the Web. The basic process is one of defining the purpose, audience, and styleappropriate to ones objectives. Another premise is that effective Web site design is an inherentlycollaborative process requiring not only technical skills but more traditional written and oralcommunication skills. Hence, this book stresses a social, process-oriented approach both to designand to classroom instruction.The book covers all aspects of teaching Web design, from optimal classsize and classroom configuration to peer review of completed projects. It is written in anaccessible style and uses many examples from the Web design course taught by the authors atMIT.
