    153153=== For GCI ===

    155 For this task, you do not need to make a theme that can be used directly in Eden (though you certainly can if you want, and if you already have an Eden development environment, this is certainly an option to consider).  Rather, you can make a few pages representing a mock web site, to show how you want your site to appear and behave.  The pages should have functioning widgets (e.g. menus, buttons, popups), though they don't have to submit forms or open other pages.  Try to control the appearance mainly through CSS rather than hard-coding it into the HTML.

    157 Please read the rest of the information in [#DesignaSahanaEdenTheme Design a Sahana Eden Theme], but keep in mind that it is written for designing an actual set of theme files for use in Eden, not a mockup, so will include things not needed here.
     155''Returning GCI students: This is not the same task as last year.''

     157''This is a good task if you are interested in web design and usability.''

     159The goal of this task is to produce a better theme for the Eden demo:[[br]]
     160http://demo.eden.sahanafoundation.org
     161
     162What we would like is something that:
     163* Gives the user an idea of what Sahana Eden is for, just by seeing the landing page.
     164* Has controls on the landing page that have a clear purpose -- the user should not have to read help information to figure out what they are for.
     165* Has controls on the landing page that illustrate common uses of Eden.
     166* Invites the user to try it out.
     167* Looks like it is from the 21st century.  ;-)
     168
     169For this task, you should:
     170* Produce an actual Eden theme.
     171* Provide a better landing page.
     172* Provide a better page layout.
     173* Design a better appearance. Try to control the appearance mainly through CSS rather than hard-coding it into the HTML.
     174* Check that your design works with all the standard page types (see [#DesignaSahanaEdenTheme Design a Sahana Eden Theme]).

     176Please read the rest of the information in [#DesignaSahanaEdenTheme Design a Sahana Eden Theme].

    159178The [#Themeexamples examples and demo sites] give an idea of what types of data and operations there are -- please feel free to ignore the way they look, where their menus are, etc., and invent your own look and feel.
    160179
     180Be prepared for mentors and community members to critique your design.
     181
     182One caution: If you use media files (images, video), please be sure they do not have copyright restrictions. You can use images and video from the Sahana web site, http://www.sahanafoundation.org, or from other Eden themes. If you want images illustrating a particular event or situation, you can ask on the mailing list if people have images they have taken.
