On-line Presentation Tips
The breakdown of your final project grade is:
Therefore the web presentation is very important. Some helpful tips and a guide
to what we're looking for is listed below. I recommend saving at least 5-10 hours
for the designing of your web page alone. For the rough draft, you need only have
the structure setup, i.e. the pages on-line with links to one another and at least
an outline on each page as to what will be presented. You must also have a rendered
image of your toy for us to critique. Thanks.

- The size of the page display area in your browser is approximately 740x440 pixels.
- Use Tables and set your width either using a percentage or an exact pixel width.
- For content guidelines examine the back of toy boxes. Your main page should convey similar ideas about your toy.
- Include the title of your toy and a large image to show it off.
- Have a directory of links to your key presentation areas on the main page.
- A nice place for image rollovers if you want to try them, but they are not required
- Give details on your project's special functions on separate pages from your main page.
- Be brief.
- Give some general summary of your toy on the main page 3-5 sentences max.
- Focus on how your toy will be used by the user and what makes it cool.
- Try to be more visual in your descriptions, i.e. less wordy.
- Try not to make your pages longer than 2-3 screen lengths. -- shorter is better

be used replace your description of your toy or its functions.
