The MIT Guide to Teaching Web Site Design
Edward Barrett, Deborah A. Levinson, and Suzana Lisanti

Most books on Web design focus on the appearance of the finished product
and pay little attention to the ideas and processes involved in intelligent
interactive design. This book is based on the premise that the principles
that have defined good communication design in the past apply equally well
to the Web. The basic process is one of defining the purpose, audience, and
style appropriate to one's objectives. Another premise is that effective
Web site design is an inherently collaborative process requiring not only
technical skills but more traditional written and oral communication
skills. Hence, this book stresses a social, process-oriented approach both
to design and to classroom instruction.

The book covers all aspects of teaching Web design, from optimal class size
and classroom configuration to peer review of completed projects. It is
written in an accessible style and uses many examples from the Web design
course taught by the authors at MIT.

Edward Barrett is Senior Lecturer in the Program in Writing and Humanistic
Studies; Deborah A. Levinson is Electronic Publishing Consultant, Web
Communication Services; and Suzana Lisanti is Director, Web Publishing
Services, all at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
