Tag: Web Publishers’ Community

We have evolved our personas for future web services. We now focus on our users’ behaviours, not their roles.

At last month’s Web Publishing Community session, we conducted an experiment in mass remote collaboration. Using a technique called liberating structures, 40 people generated ideas, before sifting through them all and finding the strongest one — all within 20 minutes.

We are seeking to better understand your needs to inform how we can enhance web services to ensure they serve you better. These services will complement and sit alongside the current corporate CMS. 

At this month’s Web Publishers’ Community session talks covered user experience; GDPR compliance in EdWeb; how to check if a Google Analytics implementation is working; and how the EdWeb cookie consent banner works.

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

This month’s WPC session focused on using short URLs, human centred design processes being developed for the University and a guide to getting started with Drupal development.

This month’s WPC session focused on Google Analytics events, the beginnings of a User Experience service at the University, the Edinburgh Global Experience Language (EdGEL) and improvements to the PURE widget interface.

I’m in the middle of reading the new book by Jeff Gothelf and Josh Seiden: Sense and Respond. I’ve finding it pretty inspirational and yesterday at our Web Publishers Community session a short webinar on the topic prompted some interesting conversation.

This month’s WPC session introduced us to new features coming soon in EdWeb, new tools for developing in Edweb and ways to keep up with future developments. We also gained insight into keeping our websites efficient and up to date.

This month’s WPC session focused on remote user testing in EdWeb, our search procurement project and using the Handlebars JS Framework. Web Publishers’ Community January 2017 presentation slides
