How Ronan.oconnell started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Business School Video Bank
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Business school video bank is a new business venture which targets students who want to attend business school and academics who want to promote their work.
The focus is to develop an archive of rich media information in video format where potential students can search for video information about schools, courses and professional staff. This information bridges the gap between business schools and students. There will be a broad range of information available, from campus life to interviews with leading academics and career coaches. It will give viewers an experience of what it is like to attend a global business school and what is expected of them.
For layout, please see http://www.imdb.com , i like the layout of this site. The central section which contains rich media and the information panels on the right which contain specific information. The menu, drop down , register and login tabs are easy to view and use.
For look n feel; http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/ is a good website because the video titles are clear and then expand with more information as you scroll over them .
Home page to contain:
Similar to imdb, we need very top to have from left to right; logo, search facility and extreme right; links to register, login, help etc
Below this we need menu with main items:
Home, About Us, Schools, Courses, Contact Us
2. Main body
- Introduction text
- A video player similar to bbc iPlayer. Also we will have
"Most popular", "Recommended" & "Categories" video content widgets where we display categorised content
- A schools widget where we list schools; eg. Harvard, Yale etc. with their crest
- GIS solution as widget on right hand side; use google maps to display top 5 universities within 50 mile radius of user's home
- Social - Facebook/Twitter widget
Usual stuff; smaller font links to contact us, terms & conditions, help etc
This site is to be developed in flex just to give you an idea on the UI style.
Target audience is professionals in the 20-40 age range ( male & Female) or anyone who is interested in attending business school including academics and professors, journalists and possibly politicians.
