UX for Higher-Ed: Web Renewal with a User-Focused Approach

Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at 1:30 PM

Location: Room 1

Laurier has leveraged a user-focused approach in its ongoing web renewal project. In this presentation, we will walk through our research strategy and methods, showcase some of our findings, and discuss how we translated this research into design and functionality solutions for our three unique properties: wlu.ca, students.wlu.ca and intranet.

We will share challenges and opportunities from this process including:

  • Integrated Partnership between Laurier’s ICT and Marketing Departments
  • Governance and Approval Structure
  • Communication & Stakeholder Buy-in
  • Information, Interaction and Visual Design
  • AODA Compliance
