Effectively teaching Internet communication and website design to students without a technical background is not a trivial task. This paper introduces a framework for understanding the factors characterizing the communication scenario defined by a website which has been used in undergraduate courses of the Communication curriculum. The approach assumes that the creation and management of websites involve both technical and non-technical aspects since a website is a complex and a multidimensional reality. Indeed, a website is: 1) a cluster of contents and services; 2) a collection of technical instruments; 3) a group of people who run the website and 4) a group of people who visit it; moreover, all the above aspects are to be understood in a given (communication market) context. Only if all of these dimensions are taken into consideration, will it be possible to communicate successfully through the Internet.
