The team has just completed our audit of a selection of school sites. We’ve uncovered some interesting themes and trends that will help inform the build of a new system to replace the degree finder and better meet the needs of student recruitment colleagues in schools.
After adding links to school-specific guidance in our content around teaching and learning in 2021-22, we found that prospective students only interacted with content from a handful of schools.
Content on what teaching will look like in September is limited by the difficulty of predicting what restrictions will be in place. But there’s evidence that saying what we can is already delivering value to students and the University.
Our research found clear entry requirements information is crucial to prospective students. But the way the University currently presents this information can be confusing and increases enquiries.
After 5 months of hard work and collaboration across the University, we launched the new undergraduate study website for 2021 on 24 February 2020.
The undergraduate degree finder content refresh activity is now reaching the end of the initial phase of update by colleagues in schools. In this post I summarise some of the questions we’ve fielded more regularly around use of GatherContent.
Just a quick follow-up to highlight an important step in the GatherContent process and to introduce a new and useful feature.
Following on from our recent training session on GatherContent for everyone involved in the update of the Undergraduate Degree Finder, we’ve now updated our guidance wiki and distributed logins to everyone involved.
We’re running training for colleagues involved in the update of the Undergraduate Degree Finder, to support our adoption of the GatherContent tool.
We recently announced a big change to how we will approach updating the Undergraduate Degree Finder. We’re piloting a tool called GatherContent which will significantly streamline our dialogue with colleagues in schools and colleges. We see this as a first step towards a more fundamental overhaul of how this process is managed.
