What is the difference between the media-rich and text-only versions of the website?
Our team basically wanted everyone with an internet connection to be able to view this website. Our team decided that making two versions of the website would allow people with slower internet connections to also be able to view the website. The text-only version of the website does not have any images or the Interact section to keep viewers with slow internet connections to view the website. Our team also worked hard so that the media-rich version of the website was not full of unnecessary images to keep the website running smoothly and quickly. For some of the video, our team decided to offer even higher resolution versions of the video for the faster internet connections and the optimal viewing experience.
