Website Comparison Project

Students will submit and present a 5-10 pp. comparison of two to three history web sites on a similar topic, comparing the aims, audience, search tools and capabilities, the manner in which documents are displayed, and your confidence in the transcriptions/images and surrounding material. These reports will be mounted on the site and presented during one of the class sessions.

1) Choose a website on a topic or an issue of interest to you, so that you have the skills to evaluate both the experience of using and designing the site and the historical content offered.
2) Select a session and a slot and type your name and the subject of the websites and/or the names of the websites selected. First come, first served. Please do not duplicate a topic or site that someone else has already chosen.
3) Once you have drafted your analysis, create a wiki page with your text (see example [http://historynewmedia.wikidot.com/website-titanic]). This need not be mounted until after you make your class presentation, but must be mounted by April 17.
