25-point Website Usability Checklist

25-point Website Usability Checklist | ITC216 - Online Multimedia Project | Scoop.it
Use this simple, 25-point checklist to assess critical website usability issues. Includes free download (1-page PDF).

 

The list is split into 4 roughly equal sections, (I) Accessibility, (II) Identity, (III) Navigation, and (IV) Content. I'll describe and rationalize all of the sections and line items below, but you can also download the checklist as a simple, 1-page PDF. I try to keep it simple with 3 basic ratings: (1) Green Check = Good/Pass, (2) Red Check = Needs work, but no disaster, (3) Red X = Bad/Fail. Not all points are necessarily applicable to all sites.

Accessibility is so important for all users. Universal design is a must for all web-based content.

Terry Patterson's comment, March 17, 2:09 PM
Great short list. One to use that is very useful and best known is the Nielsen's heuristics list. Of course, we're talking about the generic aspects. Heuristics can be specialized as well depending on the type of software application and its function. :)
Kim Spencer's curator insight, March 18, 7:05 PM

So useful to use in a class info literacy session.

What to Include in a Website Proposal - How to Write a Website Proposal

What to Include in a Website Proposal - How to Write a Website Proposal | ITC216 - Online Multimedia Project | Scoop.it
A website proposal contains many aspects different from other graphic design proposals, in that technical elements must be addressed along with creative ones. While print proposals do address items such as printing procedures, website proposals must specify web hosting, systems for maintaining content, programs or programming languages to be used and other technical specifications.

Via Mark Bottger
GA13's insight:

While this article isn't as in-depth as I'd like and takes more of a stand on the practical aspects we don't necessarily need because we won't be working for an actual client - I still think it will be helpful to keep my proposal on track and to remember what requirements it should be considering as if it is a proposal outside of an assessment.
