What we launched this week
- Search – This acts very similar to our current search but will also search the directory as well.
- Directory Search – This information is now pulling from our Campus Map instead of the current static pages.
- Recruitment Schedule – We transitioned this page over from the current Admissions website. The only tweak we made was linking off to the events calendar for more information.
Sprint three marked a crucial crossroads in our project. When we started, we were given total freedom to create the best site imaginable. Months of planning and preparation yielded a ton of ideas for everything from small page features to site-specific templates and intricate UX elements. But as we flesh out the work that goes into bringing our grand vision to life, we’ve realized that delivering a complete product that lives up to our original expectations would take more time than we currently have. After a lot of internal communication and consultation with our product owner, we’ve shifted focus to creating a minimum viable product that can be used as a solid foundation and be built upon to meet our original goals.
In our next build we plan to reevaluate our tasks to align them with the launch of a minimum viable product. As opposed to spending a lot of time on our original design and UX goals, our redefined focus will place a greater emphasis on information architecture, user flow and content.
