Web Site Navigation [A3]


Novice users navigate a web site by clicking on links. As expertise is gained, more sophisticated approaches to web site navigation may be used including search engines, entering URLs directly, making assumptions about URL naming conventions, etc. As we know, web users have limited patience, and if information is not readily available, users are likely to abandon their visit to the web site. This session considers approaches to web engineering which will help end users to navigate web sites effectively.

Note that web site design will not be covered in this session.
