Web site Planning Models

Web site planning models is the course where you will learn how important planning is to the successful design and deployment of a Web site.
This is the first in a three-part series that teaches you the requirements for planning a Web site. In this course, you will be introduced to two fundamental models, the Web Interaction Model, which illustrates the dynamic nature of a typical Web interaction, and the Web Site Development Process Model, which shows how a Web design team turns a Web site project plan into an effective Web site. In addition to understanding how particular processes can work, the models will provide you with a working vocabulary for explaining exactly what is happening when a user accesses a Web site, or when a Web team pulls together to build a site that effectively meets the client's business needs.
