  • What Do You Really Want?

    by Dawn Ellis

    This is a question we ask at the first stage of every website development project. Do our colleagues understand what their website visitors really want? How can we ensure that institutional websites deliver what our end users really want-and need?

    We often find colleagues prefer to talk about how some recent advance in technology will solve all their problems. Indeed, isn't it just easier to get funding for new technology rather than grapple with boring old content development, people and process change?

    What can we do to address this?

  • Serve Two Masters: Creating Large-Scale Responsive Websites

    by Keith Doyle and Paddy Callaghan

    How can a large-scale instutitional website provide a great user experience across mobile, tablets and desktops? In January 2012, Brian Kelly wrote a post on the UK Web Focus blog about The Mobile-Only App Anti-Pattern: "You Can't Serve Two Masters" and asked the question "Can a website serve two masters: mobile and desktop?"

    In this talk, Keith Doyle will explore a new approach to responsive websites and Paddy Callaghan will showcase a larger responsive website at the University of Bradford.

  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Two Years of Running a Content Management Service

    by Helen (Varley) Sargan

    In summer 2010 the University of Cambridge launched a content management service which provisions hosted, templated websites to departments and research groups with through-the-web access for editing and management. There is some configuration possible and extra optional functionality embedded into the sites, including form and message board creation and a person-based directory.

    This presentation maps the progress and popularity of the service and the features that have made it so, the measures required to maintain it and the community it now serves and what it and its users are telling us about other services that would be useful.

  • Measuring Impact

    by Stephen Emmott

    Measuring impact is driving many agendas within HEIs. That an institution's web presence is important is uncontroversial; knowing how and why is more difficult to articulate. Maintaining quality; establishing adequate (if not ideal) resourcing; ensuring compliance; effective management of resources; communicating change; and many more demands illustrate why this necessary. But how do we achieve this, and who should do it?

    Measurement underpins the information required for effective decision making. Progressing beyond launch and through to a sustainable life-cycle requires monitoring and review so that action is planned and appropriate. Dealing with changes in legislation - such as the requirement to declare and allow consent to cookies - creates significant problems for managers faced with cold starts to the need for an immediate response. How do we keep an eye on our website without losing the plot?

    This talk uses examples from practice at LSE and other HEIs to demonstrate a measured a web presence, providing attendees with a model to adapt to their own setting.

    By the end of the talk particpants should be able to:

    • Understand what needs to be measured and why this is important, with examples taken from LSE and other HEIs to illustrate.
    • Demonstrate how measurements are made.
    • Identify who has responsibility for the instruments used to measure, the measures taken, their recording and ultimately reporting.
    • Explain how measurement plays the key role in a web presence when the long-term life cycle is considered.
