Part One:
First visit the Way Back Machine at archive.org. At this site you can enter a web address and see how the site evolved over time. Try looking at www.lv.psu.edu to see the various website versions. How has the site changed both textually and visually? With each version of the site the technical communicators were working to improve its effectiveness for users.
Part Two:
Choose a website and look at all of the different versions. Discuss the changes over time in a document (formatted like a short report). In addition to discussing the changes and its effectiveness over the years here are some questions to help you analyze the website.
This will be graded on your thorough clear discussion of the website and how you answer the questions. You do not have to answer all of the questions; but you should discuss them as they apply to your website. As always editing and clarity should be a concern of yours. You should pay attention to your own format and design.
