Web renovation idea meetings
Posted on April 22, 2009
We need your ideas and observations about the Wheaton web site. Please take time from your busy schedule to help shape the next Wheaton web. We're holding an open idea session for staff on Friday 4/24 from 11 am to noon in the May Room in Mary Lyon and a faculty open session on Wednesday 4/22 from 2 to 3pm in the May Room.
Over the next many months we will be renovating the Wheaton web site, taking the ideas from last summer's redesign of the home page (more news, more images of students doing real things, profiles of students, better navigation and search) and extending them to the entire web site. Graphic design is part of this. A content review is another part, both to improve the existing content and to identify areas that are underrepresented. A thorough review of the navigation is a third part, something we haven't done since 1998 when the site was much smaller. And, while we're reviewing everything else, we plan some structural and technical improvements that will help departments manage pages and deliver services more effectively.
