One nonprofit + two web agencies + nine months = SchwabLearning.org. Yes, that was the formula to launch our Web site, and I am one of the sole survivors to tell you about it. In 1999, after eleven years of serving San Francisco Bay Area parents and educators through direct services and outreach, we realized that we could effect greater change if we expanded our web presence. This is the story of our redesign process.
Jeanene Landers Steinberg
is the Web Director for SchwabLearning.org and had the role of project manager during the creation of the Web site. Jeanene manages a team of eight people consisting of technical, editorial and online community staff who are responsible for maintaining and growing SchwabLearning.org into a premiere Web site for LD information, guidance and support. Before joining Schwab Learning she attended the University of Illinois and received an M.S. in Library and Information Science and a B.A. from the University of Arizona.
Her favorite Web sites are Google and Jakob Nielsen's useit.com. When she is not on the computer her favorite past times are spending time with her husband, Glen, and friends, playing and watching sports and like any stereotypical librarian, reading!
