An Exercise in Competitive Analysis

Project Published 1/21/15 Last updated on 2/28/20

This exercise allows students to consume websites from a design/usability perspective rather than the content. Not only will this capture some ideas of great design, but help you in making your own designs more usable and accessible in order to create sites that outpace the competition.

The list was pretty neat, I was hoping the questions of review would relate. They would if blogs were chosen. I may use the list and create a more global list of questions to determine the usability.

I agree, the questions are rather blog-centric. If you do create some additional general questions, send them over, and I'll update the resource.
