We’re heading down to the University of York for the Institutional Web Management Workshop (11-13 July), and we want you to come, too. The conference is aimed at staff in UK higher education institutions responsible for websites and other digital provisions.

I recently ran a one-day workshop for IS web editors focused on teaching them how to iteratively improve their digital content so users are able to self-serve on their site. The event was a great success, with attendees leaving with an appreciation for what it takes to create user-focused content.

We’re hosting a one-day workshop for IS web editors to learn how to iteratively improve your webpages as a means to promote self-service and reduce support calls. Book a place to attend the event on 29 March.

At the January Web Publishers’ Community session, I presented on 15 features you might not know about EdWeb. This post is a write-up of the slides you can use for reference and share with colleagues.

The end of 2017 marks the first anniversary of our collaboration with IS Helpline to iteratively improve their IT help provision. A year in, we look back at some of our achievements in the process of improving the user experience around IT support at the University.

EdWeb allows you to restrict webpages to be viewable only to staff and students. This post answers some common questions about the restriction functionality, including what these pages look like to your readers and how they are indexed in search.

If you’re looking to clone one of our EdWeb form templates, here’s a handy checklist of edits you’ll have to make to it before publishing.

This month’s WPC session focused on top tasks management, Snapshot (a new tool to evaluate your EdWeb site) and Drupal development experiences.

This summer we worked with IS Helpline, Student Induction and Student Systems to improve our digital provision for new students.

I recently worked with a web publisher who was interested in the event content type, but wasn’t sure if it could meet their content requirements. I talked them through the content type’s layout, behaviour and also the different options for creating an event overview page.
