UON web site now complete

Tuesday, 13 May 2014

The transition of the University of Newcastle web site is now complete, with a fresh new design and structure that has improved the user experience for our key audiences.

Since June 2013 visitors to our web site have seen various changes designed to make information easier to access. This has included:

  • regularly updated homepage and key landing page feature images and captions
  • an audience focused, topic based navigation
  • an integrated degree section, incorporating program and course handbooks
  • improved search function for UoN degrees, scholarships and researchers
  • news, events and feature widgets shared among different audiences
  • improved search response
  • automatic feeds from third party systems

In October 2013, the site was a finalist in the Sydney Design Awards (Digital Experience – Web site category) – a great achievement and a clear sign that the new site is achieving its goal to deliver an improved user experience.
