A comparison of the functionalities of two websites

Step 1: You will become familiar with an assessment tool (AChecker) to examine Web accessibility for a couple Web sites. This is a freely available tool that you can learn about by reviewing the tutorial found here.

Step 2: Select two Web sites that are somewhat similar in functionality. Find one that you think is good and one that you think is bad. Whether or not the Web site is good or bad is based upon your own personal perspective.

Step 3: Examine the Web sites regarding your suggestions as to how they might be improved.

Step 4: Create a PowerPoint presentation that includes 10-12 slides with voice recording that presents your recommended improvements. Discuss the good and bad factors of each Web site.
