Latest Web site revamp improves navigation

Redesign result of feedback from visitors to site

UBC's top-level Internet presence at www.ubc.ca has been redesigned.

The revamped site features improved navigation and search functions that will allow the university to more effectively showcase faculty, staff, students, intellectual and community spirit, as well as its setting.

The redesign is the latest in a series of steps intended to improve the university's presence on the Web, says Rob Wilson, the university's Web strategist.

The improvements are the result of extensive feedback received from visitors to the site over a 12-month period. In addition, input was solicited from faculties and departments.

"There's a tremendous wealth of information that exists on several hundred UBC-related sites, but there has historically been very little co-ordination or support provided to UBC Web site maintainers," says Wilson, who is a member of UBC's Public Affairs Office.

"We hope to develop a comprehensive strategy that enables us to continue to improve the main UBC site in addition to assisting other UBC units to more effectively use the Web as a communications tool."

Feedback on the new site is welcome. A feedback form and more information on the site can be found at www.ubc.ca/site.
