When redesigning a website, the focus usually centers on a modern-day look that delivers a great user experience, and rightly so. However, while working with colleges and universities across the country, we have found that many client-defined project scopes routinely overlook important steps that are essential for great higher education websites. These misses can threaten 508 compliance, damage the institution’s hard-earned search rankings, cause Google Analytics errors & inaccuracies, and even lead to a negative user experience. If you are planning a redesign or have recently launched a new website, don’t miss this presentation! Gus will address seven of the most common redesign pitfalls so you can make sure that your website is working on all cylinders.
