Front Page Design

If what you are creating is a simple online syllabus, then there will most likely be only one page to your resource. Otherwise, you are likely to have multiple pages nested below the main home page of the resource. If this is the case, then there are some pieces of information and formatting that experts recommend having on the first page that your users will see.

Having the site hierarchy on the home page is related to the Usability issue of having consistent and persistent navigation available throughout the site. Often the home page's unique role in the site dictates that the form of navigation present differs from the rest of the site. But it should be similar enough that any differences are obvious or self-explanatory.
