Questions for Client

On Wednesday we heard back from the client about what proposal was selected to become the new AHF Web site design. Congratulations to our group we were selected. Thank you to everyone in our group for all the hard work put into the proposal. In order to develop the Web page, the class and Web page was divided into 4 parts. In order to complete the assignment, we have a few questions that need to be answered by the client.
1. What is the mission statement for the American Haitian Foundation?
2. What type of software would you like for us to develop your page with (Dream weaver, publisher, Mozilla, etc?)
3. What are the needs for the annual yard sale (items, volunteers, etc?)
4. What recent news or achievements would you like to include in the recent news box?
5. What is the primary contact information of the AHF?
6. Can the Adopt-a-Child process be done electronically? If yes, then how? If no, then what is the contact information to adopt-a-child?
7. If possible, could we get student testimonials?

Questions for Students in Haiti

Tigers for Haiti believes that having student testimonials on the AHF Web page would make the page more personal. It would also allow donors to see the effects of their investments into the AHF, the school and children. For these testimonials we came up with a few questions that the students may answer. The questions our team derived are as follows:
What do you want to be when you grow up?
What is your favorite subject?
What is your favorite thing about school?
What do you do for fun?
The students should also be encouraged to add any other additional information that they would like to share.

Finalzing the Proposal

This week our group met on Monday at Spill the Beans to finalize the proposal. Everything was sent to Callie so that she could put it in a proper format including a border and Tigers for Haiti logo. On Wednesday in class our group showed our proposal to the class and gave a brief explanation about it. We noticed that we had left out a description on the About us page. Julia said she would compile one and then send it to Callie. On Friday, we are to bring a printed copy of our proposal so that it can be peer reviewed. On Sunday we are going to meet at 2:00 to proofread and review the final proposal before we turn it in on Monday.

I think everyone in our group agrees that we are very happy with the final proposal and hopes that it will get choosen as the AHF's websiten layout. I am proud of everyone's hard work on the proposal. I feel like our team worked together well and definitely stayed on top of the work. It is nice not to have to be cramming on Sunday night to finish the proposal. It feels good to have it completed now. GOOD JOB TIGERS FOR HAITI!!!

Laura decided that we should take the main points for each link and put them in paragraph form. These paragraphs are to be sent to Julia this weekend so that she can make them sound cohesive. Once the body of the proposal is consistent, Julia will send it to Callie.

The group then discussed the upcoming due dates. We discussed what we still have not completed and split up the responsibilities among the group member. Jessica is to complete the introduction and conclusion. Danny will compose the cover letter and Laura will write the executive summary. All of these things will be emailed to Julia so that she can have everything put together before the proposal is due to Angela on Wednesday, October 24.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 10:40 a.m. The next meeting is scheduled to take place on October 22 at Spill the Beans coffee shop.

Respectfully Submitted,

Meetings for the Week of October 8th

We had two group meetings this week; we met on Monday and Wednesday.

During the meetings we finalized our design plans for the various aspects of the website and began work on drafting the proposal. Each section of the website was divided up among the group members with the goal of creating bullet points about each page.

We plan on beginning to draft the rest of the proposal during our group meeting next week as well as finish the draft of the body of the proposal. Our group is very excited about this project and about our progress so far.

Date: October 1, 2007

Present: Jessica Odom, Laura Wilson, Callie Ross, Julia Young, Danny Soileau

The meeting was called to order at 6:00 p.m. at Spill the Beans coffee shop. This was our first meeting and therefore, no previous minutes were approved.

Old Business:


New Business:

The group first went over three possible layouts that Callie had prepared for the format of the website. We discussed each layout and came to an agreement on which layout we would be using in our proposal.

A couple of reminders were mentions: We need to make sure that give the class credit for creating the website on the website. We also need to make sure that we give Madeline Young credit for any pictures of hers that we use on the website. The group went through Julia’s pictures and noted a few that we want to use on the website. We also went through some of the documents that the Haitian students created.

The group decided to use the logo of the American Haitian foundation in the background of our homepage.

We closed the meeting by decided which section of the website we would discuss in our next meeting: “Haiti.” The links within “Haiti” were divided up among the members of the group. The next meeting is scheduled for October 8, 2007 at Spill the Beans, at 6:00 p.m.
