Transcript of RESEARCH PLAN
By: Gavin MJ (10.3)
PRIORITY #1: Information
PRIORITY #3: Methodology
PRIORITY #2: Design
TIMELINE FOR RESEARCHING THE THREE PRIORITIES
TIMELINE for INFORMATION [pt.1]
HISTORICAL PERIODS & EVENTS
Research: History of the Founding/Formation of Empire, the Golden Era of Empire, & The Decline of Empire, stating the causes of the beginnings and endings of different eras, the significant things [like wars, treaties, etc.] that happened (Through Books from the School Library, Online Documentaries, and Websites Created by Professional Authors), informing about the legacies & nationalism pride to the target audience, & also collecting information for me to create the timeline of Majapahit.
TIMELINE for INFORMATION [pt.2]
HISTORICAL LEADERS & HEROES
Research: Different leaders or national heroes, stating their successes, failures, titles, and influences for the empire or also the modern-day Indonesia. Also research particularly about the history and facts of Gajah Mada’s reign and his legacies, due to his title of being one of the greatest pre-colonial Indonesian generals. This represents honor and bravery. (Through books, online blogs and encyclopedias). These information will also be applied in the Majapahit timeline for the website.
TIMELINE for INFORMATION [pt.3]
HISTORICAL CULTURES & LIFE
Research: The cultures of agriculture, how ancient technologies were used (especially for wars, for transportation, for different types of work or jobs, and for a living as a civilian), the political structures and how it works, and the empire’s economy system (Through books, online documentaries, images/diagram visuals, and the internet reports).
TIMELINE for DESIGN (1)
TIMELINE for DESIGN 
THREE MOST IMPORTANT SOURCES (1 for Each Component)
EVALUATING the INFORMATION
Source includes author information, which tells that the author is a professional in history, and works in the Association Logistic Indonesian organization, and a foreigner who can speak Indonesian language thoroughly. This makes the text legitimately reliable. The writing is professionally done, with no spelling mistakes, and includes in-text citing (resources include ancient Majapahit texts), easy to follow (having different sections for each huge part of the history), & covers most important events and necessary information. It is unbiased, filled with facts only (no opinions whatsoever). It is also published in a well-known website, particularly for business groups & associations.
The author shows clear steps and examples, including reports or proofs from scientifically studies of the human brain & how it relates to the design principles. It is very straightforward, which makes the audience understand the context really well. The website is an organization of creating websites, and it is also professional-looking as well, with the fact that even though there are no authors, there is an information section of the team/crew and their special skills of art and design. The website is not too well known though, because it's a new site in 2014.
The website is absolutely reliable, because it is the official website of adobe DreamWeaver. It also includes an Author Biography, informing that the author is a best selling author for web design, meaning he has well-reputation that can be trusted. The texts include clear instructions and no complicated procedures, which is great for the target audience: hitting for beginners or starters. The context includes complete videos of tutorials & the website design is highly professional, which shows great skills in web design & knowledge in methodology.
PROBLEM #1: The need to inspire young people (SOLUTION: through particular information that has the ability to inspire & represent nationalism pride, bravery, & risk taking).
PROBLEM #2: Learning the mistakes of the past by using information that provides the good, wise/un-wise, and evil ways the Majapahit people did, developing young people's judgment & finding morals that can be applied to real-life situations and decision-making.
PROBLEM #3: Many people, in general, doesn't realize that some significant things or nowadays influences in Indonesia came from the Majapahit Empire, such as the Indonesian archipelago unity, cultural/traditional arts & technology (SOLUTION: Providing information about the legacies of Majapahit, cultures, and technology are needed).
I need to choose particular information to reach my goals of building awareness
about the topic. Essential information is the key to my success.
Although design makes the website looks appealing, of course, design is not as important as information because design doesn't raise much awareness as much as the context (common sense).
Creative design keeps the target audience interested in browsing through / looking at the website pages (because teenagers doesn't like websites with plain designs). But interesting information is needed to raise the awareness more effectively to reach my raising-awareness goals (of course, design can't tel about stories or legacites of the Majapahit empire, but the text of information does).
Design puts as the 2nd priority because design is inspired or based on the context or information. Without the information, the design will most likely not be related to the theme or focus of Majapahit.
Methodology is not important as the other priorities because the target audience only cares about the information, not about how the creator of the website creates the website. The main goal is to create awareness, and obviously, methodology doesn't have the ability to create awareness about the topic.
Methodology is personally important to the creator of the website, because the creator needs to fully understand how to create a website that reaches his/her personal goals of the website specifications. Fulfilling the website spefications is the main target for this 3rd priority. But still, raising
awareness is the 1st priority, hence information is most important

August 31st: MAJAPAHIT ARTS/ARCHITECTURES
Research: The different styles of arts of Majapahit, or the common ‘art patterns’ used in Majapahit designs (for example: Java uses the Garis Miring pattern a lot in batik arts), and the different types of architectures, including the architect textures, common characteristics, and colors (through visual websites, books, and documentary of remaining Majapahit sites) as a source or inspiration for the website design themes and characteristics.
September 1st: PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN
Research: Collecting the knowledge and skills of effective principles of web designs, including the principles or effective knowledge for choice of font/text, communication skills, choices of images/visuals, choices of colors, provide easy navigation, and spacing (through guidelines, tutorials, procedures, and also inspiration through YouTube, guidebooks, and interviews from visual artists [can be an SPH arts teacher])
September 2nd: COMMON FEATURES
Research: About these particular methods in DreamWeaver: building the page structure and adding common features that includes texts, images/pictures, visuals, and links (through the official websites of DreamWeaver, tutorials on YouTube or books, tutorial blogs or sites, and interviews with website designers [or even technology teachers at SPH]). These are basic knowledge needed for web designers.
TIMELINE for METHODOLOGY (2)
Sep 3rd: VISUAL STYLING
Research: About the methods in DreamWeaver: how to effeciently visually style the website pages or looks and visually styling the navigation bars. (Methods can be found in the DreamWeaver websites, YouTube tutorials, procedure blogs or sites, and of course, interviews with website designers). These 2 particular methods are very important to know, in order to follow all the goals of the website design specifications I’ll make in the future.
