Page hierarchy

Exercise: eMe page hierarchy
Create a page hierarchy for your eMe. Use the format the team used:

  • Make a list of pages, with subpages indented.
  • Notes about pages.

Make notes about each page, explaining what the goal of each page is, and (roughly) what information will go on it.

Talk it over with friends and family. What’s some cool stuff that could go on your site?

Create a page for this information on your eMe. Do not create a menu item for it. Submit the URL of the page (not just the URL of the home page).

Some content suggestions from around the Interwebs:

  • If you don’t have enough photos, have a friend take some of you working on a computer, working with a team, whatevs.
  • Make pages about projects you’ve done. For example, suppose you made an Access database. Make a page with the goals of the project, some screen shots, and a downloadable copy of the DB.
  • Tell stories about your background, if there are some that relate to your goals. E.g., write about an internship, and what you learned. A few paras are OK.
  • Nice things people have said about you.
  • Inspiring quotes.
  • People who inspire you.
  • Links to your social media profiles.
  • What jobs you’ve had, and what you’ve learned from them.
  • What are your passions and interests?
  • What are you better at than most people?
  • Write a succinct value proposition. Why would you be a valuable employee?
  • A slogan. Just a few words.
  • Make your own logo.

Look-and-feel

Exercise: eMe look-and-feel
Decide on the look-and-feel of your eMe. Make a page similar to what the team did for Adopt-a-Dog.
