Sophora for Young Web Surfers
Creating the right environment for our younger users: CMS Sophora supports interactive websites for children with large image formats and a navigation suitable for children.
Websites for the First Steps in the Net
Developers of websites for children should know and consider the needs and skills of younger users. When children are surfing the Internet, fun, games and entertainment are in the foreground. Young users have a shorter attention span, they react more slowly and prefer visual pages. They also navigate preferably through images, logos and animations, scroll less and do not recognize links at first sight.
Websites oriented at children should therefore rely on multimedia and visual content. Sophora helps young users taking their first steps in the net and makes the work of online editors easier.
