The purpose of this study was to evaluate students’ and instructors’ perspectives of completing a website design project for a required course in a professional master’s program. Fourteen students participated in a survey about their experience with web design, their perceptions of technology and of their learning styles. Strong correlations were found in; students’ absorption in learning and their creativity, students’ motivation to complete the project and ability to use of technology, the pedagogy underlying the website design project and students’ ability to use technology, and between the project pedagogy and motivation. From the instructors’ perspectives, one unforeseen issue was the extensive information that was presented on the individual websites, thus grading the was much more time intensive than would be required for a more traditional assignment. The positive aspect of this extensive amount of information was that topics were covered in greater detail than was possible during in-class lecture.
