The “participate” window on this home page rotates with two other images, each of which call out “act” and “access.” All three link to sub-pages that provide additional information and links that relate to each verb. http://www.vermontlaw.edu/
Design note: see the non-symmetrical “eye” that cycles through the photos… http://www.vpaonline.org/vpa/site/default.asp
Note the upper right hand of the home page (i.e. text size, Google translate function, search). There may be functionality here that might be appropriate for VPF&D. http://www.ncba.coop/
Note how they’ve ganged two divisions on one home page. Click on whichever fits your idealized form of education. http://www.calvertschool.org/
Note the right-hand side of the banner (i.e. How do I....) drop down menu bar. This one’s best seen by going to the site. The drop down provides an extensive list of “help” options. All then link to solutions. http://www.uspto.gov/
Note for copy development: Does the “Learn. Lead. Grow” message have any counterpart for VPF&D? http://www.vermontcf.org/
Note how the links lead to useful information… Very straight-forward but it IS a government website. https://openup.iowa.gov/home
Note the left navigation bar which clearly outlines the agency’s services… http://chaosmanagement.com/
Note the information section in the left navigation panel. Interesting use of icons that relate to content. http ://www.iowa.gov/
This one really needs to be seen on the web. Note the use of animation and text. In a general sense, this is that a very busy page. But it’s filled with news. http://www.tv5.org/
A particular slide catching your eye?
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
