ABSTRACT
Nowadays sophisticated authoring tools allow developers to design and develop sophisticated web sites, in a fraction of the time that was required a few years ago. These tools have also allowed non-experienced users to create their own web pages, contributing in that sense to the expansion of the Internet. Nevertheless, while most of these sites are technically correct (links work fine), they too often result to be very difficult, and sometimes impossible, to be used. Our position is that the use of development tools is not sufficient. The development of web sites, as any other software requires of a methodology that maximizes the chances of the project success. In this paper we present a user-centered methodology employed in the development of a web site that will help physics professors of high school to communicate among them, and to share their experiences. The characteristics of the methodology and its different stages are detailed in this paper and the final product is presented as well as future works.
