Well hello everybody!
The end of the Module is near and this Web Technology course comes to an end. So one of the last assignment is to review each other so that you can improve your site once more. I have reviewed the portfolio website of Jur Heerink and here is a link to his website: https://portfolio.cr.utwente.nl/student/jurheerink/
There are a few aspects that are important in a website:
- General information like first impression, clear identity
- Design of the website
- Content of the blog posts and projects
- Functionality of the whole website
- Connections like extra links to social media or other related sites
So I kept these aspects in mind when I was reviewing Jur Heerink portfolio site. I was really impressed by his website at first because I thought it was custom made, without Word Press. But then I read the blog post ‘The personal touch’. This post is about him using Word Press and I was even more impressed because his website doesn’t look standard or basic anymore so he improved it very good.
I just had one tip for his website because one thing was in the beginning not clear to me. On his home page I first did not notice that he had more blog posts. There is an arrow that directs you to another page with more posts. But at first that was not directly clear to me. So if he could get all your post announcements on the start page. That would be a good enhancement.
With reviewing Jur Heerink his portfolio site I became more aware of how maybe others will see and experience my own portfolio site. When you go through your own site you already know where everything is place and how it works. So you easily look over some obvious improvements.
I hopefully get some good comments or suggestions for improvements on my own website.
