2 Examples of Web Pages

The following is a link to a website that has characteristics of a well-put together website.


This website belongs to the Rhode Island Interscholastic League, which regulates the sports teams of high schools in the state which have subjected themselves to the RIIL's governing. What makes this site especially useful are the internal links to other areas on the site. All of these areas are labeled appropriately so you'll find exactly what your looking for on that particular page. It gives directions to all of the high school sports venues and allows for any volunteers to participate in any number of organizational activities. Another important characteristic is that this site is consistent with how it presents the various pages within the site and doesn't allow any of the aesthetic appeal become a distraction from the actual information.

The following is a link to a site that I found to be lacking for a few different reasons.

http://www.worldbeardchampionships.com/ (Don't ask how I found it)

I thought this site lacked in how interactive it was. All we really get from it is a few pictures and a general idea of the creativity necessary to win. It doesn't really tell you how to get involved and really doesn't give much incentive or inspiration to become involved. I think some video clips would be helpful to capture the event. Also, we don't actually know much about the procedural aspect of this competition. Do you just stand there? Do you submit pictures? Are there any qualifications? These are just some of the questions that go unaddressed.
