Hi Caren,

The designs are looking really good.

> Which home page do you prefer and why?

My opinion might change when there is a real image on Version 1, but at first glance Version 2 just looks cleaner and doesn’t feel like it cuts off at the fold the way Version 1 does. 
Comments on footer of Version 2
Pros:
I like the general look
Feels less cramped
Easier to read
Cons:
It looks more like content, especially on the first page (maybe that’s a good thing?)
I don’t know if I’d realized there was more below the first tier
It takes up a lot of space.
Not sure about the ordering

I wonder about the accessibility (keyboard, screen reader, etc.) of having the navigation on the right hand side of the secondary pages. For example a user would have to tab through all of the content before reaching the navigation.
I don’t understand the circle icon above “Related Resources” and “Further Readings” on the secondary page. It looks like a radio button.

Thanks
Justin
