Websites that Suck-but that you could learn from

Worst Websites of 2010: The Contenders

Hey CNMT New Media STUDENTS-have a look at the following article summary and go to the website to see the many-many-many examples of WEBSITES THAT SUCK!
Please "learn from their mistakes" so your team can make a really interesting well conceived and well designed website -THAT DOESN'T SUCK!!!

It's hard for me to believe, but it looks as if bad web design wasn't as bad in 2010 as it has been during the last 14 years. Plenty of bad websites still exist and since I have the cleverest readers out there, I have an almost never-ending supply of suggestions.

To paraphrase the great American philosopher Jerry Lee Lewis, there's still "A whole lotta sucking going on." I think Jerry Lee said that. I could be wrong.

In keeping with our theme of "On our 15th year of sucking," I've chosen the 15 worst contenders for 2010. These sites were featured as The Daily Sucker during January through early September 2010.

Useful site(s) in beginning to pre-plan developing your own website

Hey CNMT New Media Students,

Believe it or not-we will finally be taking the initial steps in working with our team-members to brainstorm and plan out our "teamwebsites" which we will begin developing this week. As we go through the steps in planning out "who will be responsible for doing what" when it come to our teamwebsite project I thought it would be useful to begin a dialogue about any issues that arise during this process through our CNMT New Media blog. Also, I would like all of you to carefully look at the website(s) I have reviewed for you to begin gathering insight into the process of team-based website planning and development.

Dreamweaver Basics

Dreamweaver allows users to preview websites in locally installed web browsers. It provides transfer and synchronization features, the ability to find and replace lines of text or code by search terms and regular expressions across the entire site, and a templating feature that allows single-source update of shared code and layout across entire sites without server-side includes or scripting. The behaviours panel also enables use of basic JavaScript without any coding knowledge, and integration with Adobe's Spry AJAX framework offers easy access to dynamically-generated content and interfaces.
