Clovis Museum website prototype: A user-friendly website for older people

I designed a website prototype for a local museum in Clovis, California. My co-designer and I identified that seniors were the main visitors to the existing website but that it was terribly user-unfriendly and inaccessible for all users, worse so for older users. After examining UX and Human-Computer Interaction literature on seniors’ difficulties accessing information online, we re-designed the website to be accessible and user-friendly for adults over 65.

Descriptive System Components: Jazz Solos & Sheet Music

For this assignment, I described two descriptive systems: one an existing descriptive system and proposed a new descriptive system. Each separate description identified combinations of content standards, markup formats, and controlled vocabularies. For the existing system, I chose the Sheet Music Collections of York University’s YorkSpace repository. For the second part, I proposed a system that would allow the performances of jazz solos in jazz recordings to be organized and described.
