  On the 9th of January 2024, I found myself amidst the vibrant atmosphere of UKEduCamp, an unconventional conference hosted at the University of Edinburgh.

Acting on our research carried out between 2022 and 2023 and to coincide with the web migration project and training in EdWeb 2, we’re running a series of practical sessions to help University staff implement concepts from the Effective Digital Content course.

The latest phase of developing the navigation scheme for EdWeb2 involved testing a menu system comprising a top-level menu and a left-hand menu.

With my co-chair Joseph Talbot from the University of Oxford, I chaired a UCISA UX Group panel discussion earlier this year to learn how key decision makers in UK universities perceive UX and make it happen in their institutions.

In September 2021, I blogged about defining a user-centred design process, adopted at the start of the project to build the platform to succeed EdWeb. As work continues towards resuming migrations to the new platform, it was timely to reflect on the process and consider how it has changed.
