Comment on the information architecture of the site you have chosen. Are there places where the organization and layering could be improved?
The organization of the site I will be using for my final project happens to be the main issue I noticed, hence why I chose it. The site appears at first glance to be very organized. By this I mean that there are tabs across the top with clear headings, and all of which lead the viewer to a page that contains the desired information. However, the problem is that once the viewer gets to that page, there is no organization to guide the viewer through the page. Each page just has large paragraphs of information without any sub headings at all. There is not one link that brings the viewer to another page. This means that there is literally no layering throughout the site.
We learned that a website is often like a stack of note cards with the top note card having a large topic, which leads you to a smaller and more concise topic each time you flip to the next card. This is symbolizing a website user selecting a heading or broad topic in hopes to go through several guiding layers to find the exact, desired information.
I think that if I took the information seen under each tab and broke it down into categories and sub categories, and then created more headings and links to that information, that it could actually be a very useful site.
