improvements• Make the video more fitting to the web page.• Make the scroll bar match the house style.• More text for the scroll bar so it scrolls moresmoothly.• More information on the page.• Add more hyperlinks.• Add a few widgets.
Self evaluation• I think the whole web page runs smoothly and that the page looks nice. I amhappy with the end product and I think that it has met all the criteria. I think Icould have spent a bit more time on it to get some thing that looks very good andimpressive. I would have really like to add a widget but every time I tried it addedabout 300 lines of html and I ruined the whole page. All of my links to other pagesmatch the obvious house style and are aligned up well. I think if there was a bitmore news on the page the slider would run more smoothly because the moretext that is in the box the less the bar moves each time and the smoother theeffect on the viewers eyes. If it was updated frequently it could be a successfulmultimedia page. The slide show was probably the hardest thing to do because Icouldn’t change the alpha on some of the pictures and it wouldn’t slide properlyfor ages, but I now think that I have made the slideshow quite well, I had to try alot of times to get the pictures to be able to fade because the alpha effect wasn’tcoming up on a few of them but now I think that the way they slide into eachother looks very good. I had to put them on different layers to get them to work. IfI could change it now, I would make the pictures stay on for more frames so that Icould play it at a higher FPS and it wouldn’t jolt. The pictures fit with the pagebecause they are all of snowboarders. I don’t think it is as good as it could havebeen because I rushed to finish and I could have just done it better to start with.
• I think the animation looks terrible on the page with the video because itdoesn’t fit well on the page and looks like it has been thrown on at theend with the video. I would either make a new link to the animation pageor get rid of it completely. The only reason that I put it on was to get thehigher grade criteria but I think that it makes that part of the page lookrushed and messy. I really like the music on the page because it fits verywell with my theme because it is the redbull’s official song and my page isabout an extreme sport and my page does talk about redbull. The song is agood song that people will enjoy to listen to while looking at pictures andif they don’t they can always turn their sound off. They link thesupernatural is very well positioned and I think that that page looks nice aswell, so if people didn’t get enough information from mine they can get allthe details from another page that has all the confirmed details on theevents. One of my friends doing this topic has a moving background andthat looks amazing and I would have really liked to do something like thatbut I don’t know if that would fit because his is the minecraft backgroundand mine would be a slideshow. Unless I could make the slide showperfect I don’t think it would be worth putting ion there because it wouldbe jolty and make the page not look profesional.
Peer evaluation- Ollie King• The whole website/multimedia product runs very smoothly. Thenavigation bar is very neat and lined up well and it looks veryprofessional. He’s added lots of features like pictures, animation &videos which makes the product stand out a lot. Another thing thatmakes the product stand out a lot is the originality of thesubject/focus (Snowboarding). I really like this website because it’soriginal, unique and really well functioned. The scroll bar in themiddle of the web page is really handy as well by giving usefulinformation to people who like or want to know more aboutsnowboarding. The slideshow runs very smoothly as well and thepictures are quite cool too. His link to the official ‘Supernatural’page on Red Bulls home page is quite cool too. The onlyimprovements I would make is possibly by adding a You Tube videoto the product to give a simple idea into the basics of thesnowboarding world. Apart from that this is a very good multimediaproduct. WELL DONE SAM
Peer evaluation – Jack Grogan• I think Sam’s product really shows the amount of workhe has put into it. It looks professional, the backgroundlooks smooth and that it should be there and isn’tthrown in.• Also the buttons are very professional and well placed.Look again that they match the house theme. They arealso very smooth and brilliant in how they look whenthey are pressed and hovered over. Brilliant in myopinion. However there is a negative. There is no realhomepage, the website is just there as soon as it loads.It feels like you are “thrown into the deep end”, butother than that it is a masterful product.
Peer evaluation – Beth• I really like this product. It is very professional and hasa good consistent house stile.• It is very informative and I like the scroll to lookthrough the text. Also The slideshow of pictures hasgreat transformation from one to the other becausethey fade into each other. It runs very smoothly andeverything works well the only thing you could add is abutton sound when you click on one of the buttons.Also there isnt really a homepage so I think you shouldhave a homepage and button so your not on the newsstraight away.
