See below for some of the common themes I observed in my classmates' Assignment 1 pages.
Most students are interested in the class to understand the impact that computers play in the creation of media (and how they drive new forms of media,) as was readily apparent from Leul Asnake, Karter Bullard, and Merryll Dewabrata's sites.
Common Design Decisions
A great variety of different designs and styles have been used on other students' sites. Many students like Grant Hill used website builders such as Wix, while some, such as Akin Adegboye made use of free a WordPress site. Others, such as Ledet Awano chose to design web pages from scratch and apply styling through the use of CSS, while some just used plain HTML, relying on the brower to apply styles, as is the case for Tate Banks' site.
Regardless of how these websites were created, they all provide the same information in roughly the same format.
