Confirmation, Adjustment and Clearing
Tasha and Amanda worked with Student Recruitment and Admissions to provide a comprehensive list of vacancies for Adjustment and Clearing on A level results day, and to keep this up-to-date throughout the busy phase of Adjustment and Clearing. We also worked on social media to congratulate students confirming their place and to provide supportive messages from current students and alumni.
Paul has been investigating ways to move the University website to a responsive design. At the Show and Tell Paul gave a presentation on what work this involves (internal only) and a glimpse into the possible approaches we can take.
We're continuing to work with an external agency on the design and content of our course pages. After providing feedback on wireframes we've received a design proposal which we are considering and will send feedback on. Alison gave a presentation on the background, and the progress so far, in the latest Show and Tell.
Websites moving into the Web CMS
The Planning Office and Electronics have both started the process of migrating into the Web CMS. While moving the Planning Office pages we'll be looking at ensuring they sit in audience facing areas of our site: especially useful for users who are not familiar with the University's offices. There has also been a reorganisation with PRDU now sitting outside of the Politics website, helping to support the University's goal of increasing PRDU's inter-disciplinary activities.
Setting up a regular email update
As part of our efforts to keep web authors informed of what's happening that might affect them, we've started a newsletter. Amanda will be sending out the first newsletter by the end of the week.
