Lesson 1

Reviewing WebSite Planning Models and Deployment

Reviewing Web site planning models

The first course in this series, Web Site Planning Models, introduced two effective models for understanding how the Web works.
The Web Interaction Model illustrates the five dynamic components that comprise a Web site, from content design (signs and metaphors) through the hardware requirements for deploying and maintaining the finished site. The Web Development Process Model illustrates the six phases of a Web design project, including the roles, responsibilities, and deliverables required of each member of a Web design team.
This module provides a review of how these models work, as well as the fundamental processes and vocabulary that applies to the Web design concepts you will learn in this course.


To visualize a real world application of how a WebTeam functions, Web Site Planning Models also introduced WebTeam, a virtual design team hired to complete a Web design project.
WebTeam appears throughout this course, as well, and this module provides you with an opportunity to become reacquainted with the team.
