Course Page Redesign
In an effort to highlight my course material I’ve decided to make a couple changes to the way my site looks and functions. For the past five years my website has served as a portfolio site. When I taught classes for eight semesters (from 2013 to 2015) I added a section of course pages onto my portfolio site. Now that I’m thoroughly settled into life as full-time faculty at WCC (and thoroughly out of the job market) I’ve decided to stop thinking of my course material as secondary.
The most noticeable change is the removal of the blue text, which visually separated my course content from my portfolio content. Additionally, the layout of my “Courses” page has changed, using less real estate at the top where the individual course pages are featured and prominently featuring a handful of recent posts from my “Class Blog.” Of course, Campton by René Bieder is still heavily featured, which continues to act as a unifying visual thread. I bought that font on sale through my MyFonts several years ago and it continues to be one of my favorite font purchases.
