Project Description: This project studied the usability issues surrounding a redisigned implementation of an existing Web site utilizing commercially developed methods to maximize its usability. During the process accepted metrics were used to compare the two sites for usability and function. The comparisons took into consideration not only the user perspective, but also the perspective of those in charge of maintaining the site. This site is currently in use by the Chief of Naval Air Training, United States Navy, to disseminate information for all computer skill levels. Usability testing throughout the design process was used to maximize functionality and ease of use.
