Abstract: A collaborative project is described. In this project, students in a web design class contacted local businesses and created web sites (collections of web pages) to benefit these businesses. Two phases of the project, planning and implementation, are described. The project, suitable for both online and face-to-face instruction, required that students keep a journal. The instructor did a follow-up investigation to assure that the websites that students created were indeed what the businesses asked for.
