Khan Academy – The educational website displays great design elements. There is “clean” look, with the font same throughout and easy to read. This website uses color to coordinate with different topics and uses simple images that coordinate with the topics. Students who go to this site, can easily navigate and understand where to go.

Brain Pop – This is “Kid Friendly” website. Although it looks busier than Khan Academy, it still displays some good design elements. The negatives of this website are the full color background of the site, layers by others colors as well as two scrolling bars (one at the bottom and another at the top) This makes it a little busy on the eyes, however, the purpose of the site is fun and education.
