FIT GD243: Instructional Website

I have taught Web Design for several years at several schools, and this particular assignment was one of my early favorites: I had the students build a website that taught the end user a multi-step lesson. I encouraged each student to really find something they knew quite well, and on the whole they produced impassioned, lovely sites. It was the beginning of my realization that students need to discover their own projects and passions.
