A new look JISC website
The JISC website is sporting a brand new look and feel from today, complete with an easy-to-use, topic-based navigation system that will help you find the information you want more quickly and easily.
Ben Whitehouse, JISC digital communications manager, said: ‘The revamp of the site is the result of listening to you, the people who use it. We have looked at how we can meet your information needs most effectively and improve your online experience.’
Some of our work has been informed by our Audience Experts Panel of Librarians and e-Learning practitioners, who took part in focus groups last year. We also collated information via online surveys and some people took part in prototype testing our new customised homepage feature.
Several new elements have been introduced to the website, including:
- Topic-based navigation system
We’ve organised what we do by topic so you can see all the JISC activity in this area. There are also links to news stories, funding opportunities and any publications concerning it
- Improved search
Search not only the JISC site but across JISC Services independent sites with one simple click
Tweak your homepage so it becomes 100% relevant to you
- Simpler layout
Overhauled landing pages to make finding content easier
- Publications section
New filtering options so you can find that all-important document
- RSS feeds
Increased use of RSS feeds, for example by topic or ‘Recently Updated’ activity
Whitehouse added: ‘We value your feedback, with a dedicated page for you to tell us what you think and to report any issues or bugs
You can also tag your blog posts and tweets with #jiscweb to help us collate and react to your web comments rapidly.
