old sites revisited
2002 started out with a rush, as a number of our clients
that we had designed web sites from 1998 through late
1999 returned to us for redesign.
Due to technology changes and general increases in
knowledge by typical consumers, it is important to review
your site's general usability, "look and feel"
and general content every six months. A redesign generally
starts to make sense around four to six web generations,
or two to three years. Over 80% of our web engineering
is dedicated to site redesign and GUI development.

Web-Based Training (or WBT) has been referenced for
the last 2 years as one of the functional areas that
corporations could take advantage of the Web's inexpensive
communications venue. Up until now, the process and
costs associated with online course development has
been considered prohibitive. Now, using Dreamweaver
and CourseBuilder, complex interactive educational training
and testing can be developed inexpensively.
We can teach you to build your own courseware, or we
can develop it for you. To help demonstrate the technology,
we've made our "HTML Basics"
course available to the world... free
of charge (no approval hassles) and
no registration (totally anonymous).

Current projects include the conversion
of an insurance carrier's sales training assessment
exam, through multiple-choice questions, exact matching
and other testing methods. The content for the manual
already existed in text format, and the exam was almost
identical in required interactivity as our WBT example
found at web-graduate.com.
