Evaluation: PHP modules are used for content management. Plans to upgrade framework to Ruby on Rails with MySQL database support in near future.
PSU Hazleton Student Government Association
PSU Hazleton Student Government Association Evaluation: The prior site has many colorful graphics, but the design is not up-to-date. The content depends heavily on the use of iframes, which is not an efficient interface. The photos are resized with HTML, rather than physically with a graphics editor; hence, the pixels are choppy. Also, the separate flash intro page is an unnecessary hindrance as well as the falling flakes of the PSU logo.
PSU Hazleton Allies
Evaluation: The new design implements a PHP-based content management system with text files. By including content as separate modules, updating the content and design is a much simpler task.
