Question 1

In What Ways Does Your Media Product Use, Develop or Challenge Forms and Conventions of Real Media Products? (Question 1)

The website I have created called; I feel it is a website that follows conventions with navigation but I think it challenges the idea that websites on social and global issues have to be boring with lots and lots of text. You can interact with the website right from the front page, other similar websites about global warming are quite boring and are over loaded with facts

(as shown to the right), but with '' it makes learning about the awareness of global warming a lot more simpler and more enjoyable than reading pages and pages of facts that do not make sense to anyone apart from the people who are experts on global warming.

The front page is the main page of the website; it is a picture of the globe with each country and main oceans as hyperlinks, with the titles of the pages on them. This makes it aesthetically pleasing and more interactive than just clicking a rectangular box down the side of the page like the other global warming pages found on the Internet. I think this because it gets the viewer interacting straight away by having to use the hyperlinks to navigate to the other pages.
