It’s been a little over a year since we started rolling out content on our new content management system. Our initial focus was on building the feature and content blocks that make up the individual areas, now we focus on content migration. Here is a brief summary of where we are.
Throughout the pandemic, clear and consistent information for our community has been key to ensuring that people are well informed and have a resource for getting the latest information. Often this information changed daily. As we begin to backtrack and head back to campus, good quality information is crucial.
Much of the information we share online is common across the facility and often owned throughout the University. A tremendous amount of work has gone into creating these building blocks to drive a consistent user experience and improve the search experience.
This has been by far the most important part of the migration project to date. We’ve reviewed, rewritten, enhanced and created over 550 courses and built and migrated nearly 2,500 modules, as well as integrating with leading business systems to ensure data consistency. These pages are constantly being reviewed and updated with new content as new courses and modules go live and old courses and modules are also removed.
School / Discipline
We are working extensively with contacts at each of the schools to migrate their existing presence to the new system.
As we build towards REF2021, in addition to all the work within the school site migrations and work on storytelling to ensure research is highlighted, we are bringing new areas online to further enhance our promotion of our research.
As we migrated content as part of our ‘Guidance’ and ‘Corporate Governance’ work, we also migrated individual areas.
