Engineering a better website for the Faculty of Engineering
What do coffee, the Schulich Library and McGill’s Web Management System (WMS) have in common? If you stopped by the Schulich Library of Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, and Engineering during the December exam period, you might say plenty!
We spent the morning of December 8 with the Faculty of Engineering’s site manager in the building lobby outside the Schulich Library conducting usability testing on Engineering’s website. Student participants were coaxed to take part in the short test with complimentary coffee from the popular Dispatch Café. Volunteers were asked to perform a variety of tasks on the site.
This is one of a number of initiatives currently being undertaken to assess the site in preparation for revisions planned for 2017. Stay tuned to the Beta Blog for updates as the project unfolds!
