Atlanta public school website is a institutional website that encourages parents to get involved in their children education , provides the latest news in the Atlanta school district , and to encourage the students to engage themselves in summer learning activities , and tutorials to make sure they excel in school. The Atlanta Public School is a digital websites , but their corporate business is located in downtown Atlanta at 130 Trinity Ave . The site was created in 2008 and the things I’ve noticed from the site is that they have a warm welcome for kids because they display a lot of children on their site. What I’ve also noticed is that this website is more of a business than a friendly/ school orientated website because the site puts their achievements and awards on the top of the screen to persuade the audience ( which are mostly parents ) on how well their school system is . Under the achievements the site has a small box that says ” ENROLL NOW IN SUMMER CLASSES” with a kid standing behind the box smiling to convince the readers that their child will benefit or enjoy from the summer program.The site have small digital sections that offers tutorials and “homework helplines ” for students that struggles in school to let the parents or the audience know that they care about their child success and that the Atlanta public school system is where there child should be. The layout of the site consists of today’s date in the top right corner , the site’s name in the middle of the top screen and on the left side of the website , there’s a active Twitter feed of people engaging in new ideas on how to make the APS system better. When discovering the layout of the site I noticed the color scheme as well. The colors is blue and orange which are bright colors that could represent bright kids and bright school careers. When a parent discovers the site , one could be more likely to continue the navigate the site because of the bright colors rather than dark colors such ass black and gray. When I discovered the website it was fairly easy to navigate because the site had tabs at the top of the screen to guide a parent on a specific topic they was looking for , and the had tabs on the left side of the screen to labeled as “quick link” to navigate the reader into a off topic but relevant issue such as bus routes , cafeteria health scores , and more. The site does have a lot going on because the site has many slideshows playing at once which could distract the reader but the site is helpful for finding topics and issues.The site uses there tabs and quick links to help the people who use the site , which is mostly the parents to get information about their child school system or to possibly enroll their child into this school system. The site is used for informational,educational purposes , and to engage the parents to become more active in their child school life. When I discovered the site , I felt Comfortable because I felt like the websites was a trustworthy website and that they really care about children success in school.I chose the word comfortable to explain that I trusted the website and that I could persuade my mom or others who have young children pro check out the website. In conclusion the site adversities it’s user by , by using the smiling children to demonstrate the success and fun they have at Atlanta public schools , and signals their intended users by displaying their success and accomplishments at the top screen big and clear to persuade the parents that the Atlanta Public School System is right for their child.
