  • Website architecture is exceptionally important – especially for the users experience. There are five main types of flow architectures; Linear, Hierarchical, Grid, Circle, Web.
  • Linear Website Diagrams are designed like books. Access is sequential. Linear sites are preferred if you are presenting as series of steps or tracking a process from start to finish.
  • Hierarchical structures or Tree-design website Diagrams have a Homepage that serves as the “table of contents” to other Webpages in the Website. Unlike the linear design, the hierarchical Website design provides more than one path that a user may take.
  • Grid Design websites provide self contained rooms of information. The structure allows for moving between rooms that most appropriately placed together such as a kitchen dinning room. The Dinning room may link to the living room room, but does not link to the bedroom.
  • Circular Sites provides a central point from which to reach all 360º of the content. All pages are linked in a circular or passage fashion to that the user can cir-cum navigate the entire site. This site provides the opportunity to travel round the entire site while providing immediate return to the start point at any time.
  • Web In the way a spider weaves a web it is designed to catch the user and then provide easy access to the content the user is looking for. All the pages are inter-linked to allow direct access from one page to another.
Five evaluative guidelines from the School of Journalism & Library Science
  • Up-to-date? One of the quickest ways to lose your reader’s interest is if your content is out of date. Make sure your date specific events, news items, indicate that the site is actively maintained.
  • Coverage: What is the focus of the site? Are there clear headings to illustrate an outline of the content? Is the navigation within the website clear? Review the header for a clear title and web site description and ensure the navigation reflects content within the web site.
  • Objectivity: Are biases clearly stated? Are affiliations clear? Check the content for statement of purpose, to determine the type of web site and potential audience for outside links for information external to the website for graphics and cues for affiliations.
  • Accuracy Are sources of information and factual data listed, and available for cross-checking. Check the content for accuracy of spelling, grammar, facts(!), and consistency within website.
  • Check content for a bibliographic variety of websites (external links), of electronic media (electronic databases of references, established (print & on-line) journals, of electronic indexes (ERIC), and of books for comparative/evaluative purposes.
