Anatomy of a Website Redesign
NTEN courses run for one week and are offered twice a year.
Identify the pieces of information you need to provide a developer for an ideal website outcome
Learn about the participants in a website project and their roles, and how you can facilitate, communicate, and work with all of them through the hard decisions involved in building a website
Use the website planning information to translate your mission, programming, and stakeholder needs into plans for a website
The website design or redesign process can be intimidating: You know a good website can support your organization’s mission, but how do you get from needing a website to a beautiful, functional, mission-driven “.org”? Whether it’s built in-house or by a consultant or agency, you need to understand the redesign process ahead of time so you and your organization are prepared to get a website that works and lasts.
This course will teach you the high-level phases of a website redesign while providing tips for success and pitfalls to avoid along the way. The readings and presentation will focus on identifying and communicating the needs of your organization before other work on the project begins. Homework completed will directly apply to designing a new website or improving an existing one.
