Ivy League Material?
I'm going to have to go with Angela on this- I didn't find the Harvard News page that impressive. OK, the changing images at the top was pretty neat, but...Did anyone else think the pictures changed too fast? Reason #342 why I'd never get into Harvard; I can't read fast enough.
I guess I'm not really being fair, because I haven't said what I think would improve the site. Now, I am definitely not a web page master. I took a series of multimedia classes in high school, so I can sometimes hold my own in a conversation about webpages. However, it's been so long since I've used those programs (Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks...fun stuff), that I would need to take a class again just to remember everything. Anyway, the point of that trip down memory lane is that I know webpages can have animation (not just the kind that sits there and stares at you, but more interactive type images), but that can really add to loading time. After I complained about the loading time in my last blog, I don't think I can really suggest anything to make the site more interesting. Any thoughts?
My personal conclusion: The site did what it was supposed to do, but because it had the Harvard name attached to it, I, perhaps unreasonably, expected more.
