Webinar Description 

Curious to see what website experts really think when they look at a website? View our archived webinar, Short Evaluations of Real Websites. This free one-hour webinar is presented in cooperation with SAP, a donor partner of TechSoup. During the hour, web design experts Susanne Hempel and Steve Williams take a look at a succession of real nonprofit and library websites.

Some questions the experts ask are:

  • Does the website accurately reflect the mission of the organization?
  • Is the navigation intuitive and easy to understand?
  • Does the website have original content?
  • How searchable is the site from a search engine?
  • Are there ways to make it easy for a visitor or supporter to participate in that community?

This webinar focuses on the general principles of web design and is appropriate for anyone interested in improving their organization's website.
