Projects By Team In Full Effect
Child and Family Research Labs Website
The purpose of this project was two-fold. First, members of the Williams College Psychology Department wanted to communicate information about their studies with people who lived outside of the immediate Williamstown area. This was addressed by building a web site that would provide information about the various ongoing studies along with contact information. Additionally, the site would allow for related background readings or other publications to be included in the content. Second, the Web Site needed to be interactive in its ability to provide secure online surveys and questionnaires that participants could send back electronically. This was addressed by creating secure .pdf files where participants enter a password before opening the documents. The password is granted to them after a brief phone interview with a faculty member. Once downloaded, participants can email the surveys back as attachments. This content-rich site with the downloadable .pdf files allows faculty members to communicate and interact with participants outside of Williamstown.
The purposes of this project are to create a website where people will be able to learn about the seven clean energy basis and to educate people in The Berkshires on the availability and the uses of clean energy. There are three main categories in the site: Green Energy basis, Local Green Energy projects and Special features. As mentioned above, the Green Energy category tells about the seven clean energy basis and the Local Green Energy Projects tells about the Green Energy Projects around Berkshire. Dynamic maps and photo galleries are included under Special features. Dynamic maps are provided by a former Williams graduate and most photos for the galleries are gathered from NREL, NASA websites while some of them were taken by Infulleffect members.

The dialogues consist of 2 speakers and the text can be set to English, Pinyin, Simplified, or Traditional characters. The audio mode can be set to full audio or one speaker only. The project can be delivered as a Shockwave movie, or a projector file for Windows or Mac OS X.
