I'm thinking about designing a website to help students with their academic research and writing.
What do you think constitutes a good essay website? Should it be simple and only have relevant links (like: Home, About us, Contact us, Privacy, Faqs, TOS) or it should also have a blog or articles? Do you think students actually read these articles or blog posts? It looks like it's a hard job to maintain a blog and write posts..
Is a flashy website better or it should be very simple? What do students consider a good academic research and writing website? Are there any preferred font or background colors, should there be a lot of graphics? Should I put some youtube videos or audio message? How about live chat - is it required?
Thank you, Lewis.
