Running page: WEBSITE EXAMINATION 1 Ghost train web site examination Name Institution Ghost train web site examination A website is a collection of pages of the web that are related including the content in multimedia, which is identified with the same domain name and is published on one web server. The ghost train website was created to market the artistic work that was put into developing the illusion of a ghost train, which was to pass through the ride of oakland Bridge in Capitol Hill. The website is about an artistic experience at oak leaf bridge and capitol dive. The creative experience is about a train, which is set to make its inaugural run in October 216. The designer of the train used the principles of creativity in lighting and engineering in architecture to create the illusion of the illusion of the ghost train crossing the bridge.

WEBSITE EXAMINATION 2 For instance, the report generated by the ACC brought to light twelve known design shortcomings, two likely problems and more than three hundred potential problems in the design of the webpage. One of the design flaws includes the design did not make easy for the web-users to see the web-content which included the missing separation between the background and the foreground. The success criteria regarding content (AA), regulation three hundred and one, found color contrasts in the text and the elements background did not meet the regulations of the standards that were set out to adhere. For instance, line 818, colum13 had a solid border style that was thin aligning the text in the center with a background color denoted by RGB. The other column 13 lines of 819to 832 had similar features of the design. Line 825colmn118,had a background color denoted as RGB (229,219,207) similar to line 826,column 119 and line 827 column 18. The website element h1 was also a known error that was found in the design of the website. The BITV 1 (level 2) provides regulations for the web pages to make use of the elements of the header to pass the document framework and to use them stipulated in the specification. The WCAG one level (Level AA), WCAG 1 level (AAA) also provide for the same regulations. The WCAG 2 level (AA0) provides for ways that help the users to navigate, find content and determine where the users are while viewing the material they are availed in the webpage. The regulation WCAG 2 level (AAA) also performs the same task. The ghost train webpage is required to have a header following an h1 is h1 or h2. The error in the webpage is because of header nesting because the header following h1 is not the correct format. The header must be equal or one level higher or less than what is designed in the webpage (Caldwell, Cooper, Reid, & Vanderheiden, 2008).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
