Iowa State’s website portal has been redesigned several times. Because the functions of college websites include both serving current students and attracting new students, the principles of good business communication are involved throughout.
Using the concepts presented in Chapters 1 through 3, as well as your understanding of good design and usability principles from later in the textbook, write a 3-4 page double-spaced analysis of the effectiveness of Iowa State’s website in serving two different audiences: current students and people who are interested in Iowa State (prospective students and their parents). Pay particular attention to the “front page” – what people see when they come to www.iastate.edu. Also what comes up when they click on menu items under “Admissions,” “Academics,” “Students,” and other headings of interest.
Use 4-6 major concepts from the textbook to analyze the usefulness and effectiveness of the website – concepts such as purpose, audience, goodwill, “you-attitude,” design, usability and so on. In analyzing the effectiveness of the website, support your claims with descriptive examples. You should demonstrate a strong understanding of the textbook concepts you choose to use as analytical tools.
Remember that the website is meant to serve more than one audience and purpose, and that you may find that it serves certain audiences and purposes better than others. You will be evaluating the website on how it serves two kinds of audiences. It is appropriate to offer suggestions for improvement in areas that you find the website inadequate.
Finally, there is no way to cover all the content on the website, so choose just a few main features to concentrate on.

You are a manager at the Acme Shoestring company, which is about to start using their services. Shredders wants you to put your name on their generic memo and then send it to all the employees who have access to sensitive documents.
Think about the fictional situation (which you may add too if you need to), use the principles you’ve learned in this class, and revise this memo to a form you would be willing to put your name on.
Turn in a revision along with a one-paragraph explanation of the changes you made (or why you left certain parts alone).
