Exploring navigational hierarchy on higher ed websites

Date: Saturday, July 15, 2017
Time: 9:00 - 9:45 am (EDT) (UTC-04:00)
Location: Room 1028
Format: General Lecture Session

Session description

The architecture of higher education websites can often be massive and complicated. Navigating through to different departments and resources can frustrate users. There are too many clicks to reach the content users are looking for, no way to get back to where they came from or not enough visual cues to let them know where they are in the site. In this session, we’ll discuss ways to solve these issues and talk about helpful approaches to creating an intuitive, organized navigational structure that helps users get the information they need.

This session was not recorded per the speaker's request.
