I attended (and spoke at) Utterly Content earlier this year, an online conference for content professionals around the world. In this post, I recap my top takeaways from some of the talks I watched.
Over summer 2022, we worked with the Finance team to improve content on how students pay tuition fees. From August to October 2021 to the same period in 2022, the team saw a 75% drop in enquiries in the content area we were focusing on.
Our content team members attended – and some even spoke at – the ContentEd conference in November. In this post, we recap what our favourite sessions were and what we took away from the conference.
Our team has been working to create a content model for the future of prospective undergraduate online provision. In this post, I recap the initial sprints we held to begin to develop the model.
The complexity in reducing complexity: redesigning a form for registering how students pay tuition fees
We worked with the Finance department to redevelop a form for students to tell the University how they will pay their tuition fees. In this post, I recap the complexities we faced in designing the form, how we addressed these and how a complex solution can simplify the experience for students.
My team and I recently reviewed our usability testing facilitation skills through a playback of some of our test recordings. In this post, I recap why we ran the session, how we ran it and what we learned.
During our collaboration project with the Student Immigration Service, we kicked off developing each new piece of content with an ideation and prototyping workshop. In this post, I recap the format of these workshops and what we learned from them.
Working with the Student Immigration Service to improve the student experience around applying for visas
We’re in the middle of a project to enhance the digital experience for students using the Student Immigration Service. In this post, I recap how we’re running the project and what we learned in the discovery phase.
