University Webpage Design and its Effect

January 11, 2018

We talk, express and behave differently based on our own community‚Äôs cultural code. It is probable and interesting that we constantly adopt different approaches to achieve the same purpose. University websites serve as a bridge between on-campus and out of campus. One of the purposes of setting up a university website is to promote a positive image and make its vision happen through various strategies. This talk is trying to give a comparison of university web page design between two universities from different cultures in an attempt to explore the strategies used in web page design and their effects.
