Technology and Instructional Design

Summit County Historical Society

Summit County Historical Society web site (2004)
Application: Dreamweaver
Web Site (see binder)

As a primary activity for my field experience, I redesigned the web site of the Summit County Historical Society to better meet the organization's needs of informing the public. The site replaced one with minimal features and outdated information. While the site's appearance was greatly improved, the accompanying documentation and training will allow the organization's employees to keep information current. (See Field Experience binder for screen shots.)

Technology and Instructional Design: Reviewed existing materials (previous web site and additional content from various sources: interviews, brochures, other historical society web sites) and created new site layout and look-and-feel based on that information. Note: the organization's web site at has since been revised with a new color scheme and layout, but much of the content remains the same.

I developed a basic web site for a new fun run (running event) that I organized earlier in 2008.

I created this basic web site for a 50 kilometer run in Brecksville, OH that I founded 10 years ago. The site was designed to convey basic infomation about the race, including announcments, course maps, directions, and results from previous years. The site has since been updated since I handed the race over to another race director.

Screens:Old Site Revised Site

As an institutional researcher for Cleveland State University (CSU) my responsibilities including conducting research projects using internal enrollment data and national census data. In addition, I volunteered to update our department's web site to become a more informative resource, both internally and externally, with a better look-and-feel and a more user-friendly interface. The previous site, which was static, was enhanced to include a graphic scheme based on the school colors, up-to-date enrollment reports, and news articles written by department staff. I developed the site (HTML pages) using Dreamweaver.

I developed a personal web site several years ago to market myself to potential employers, publish relevant links, and post thoughts and comments about the latest technology. While the earlier sites were based on traditional HTML and later Blogger, the latest version uses WordPress because of its improved customization.
