Yesterday was the second part of the E-mediat workshop in Zicco House on Social Media. This is a brief on the topics we learned about during the first day:
- The purpose of the NGOs online presence:
- to network,
- to outreach,
- to raise funds
- and increase members.
- The type of websites available: Static, Dynamic, Interactive, Portal, Blog, Landing page and Social media presence.
- Tips for the NGO website:
It has to be friendly easy to use, corporate, accessible content, relevant and up to date content,
visible contact information, simple and quick loading.
- Requirements document:
Domain name, search, news, social media integration, and RSS (Reach Site Summary).
- HTML basics (Hypertext Markup language)
Text formatting, preformatted text, text direction, long and short quotation, how to mask deleted
and inserted text.
Then we moved to the ABC of web design
- Flash & HTML
We have to take care of the structure and layout of the NGO's website, we should choose well the colors and the photos should be clean and with low resolution, safe for the web and not to put too much pictures so it doesn’t make the website heavy.
It was really interesting, especially the HTML part, and too bad I won't be able to attend today because I have work to do in the office.
