2022 Website Prototype Projects by MS in Professional Writing Students

In Principles of Information Architecture, a core course taught by Dr. Steven Goss, MS in Professional Writing (MSPW) students learn about information architecture and user experience/UX Writing through the study and practice of techniques used to develop websites and apps. For their final projects this past spring, students were asked to develop a website prototype based on a mock request for proposal (RFP). In response to the mock RFP, students sought ways to match content presentation methods with the specific needs of their target audiences, which varied across projects. After submitting their prototypes, the class took on the role of RFP reviewers and selected the strongest prototypes. The following student website prototypes were ranked the highest in the Spring 2022 course (in no order).
