Web Redesign Timeline
New Redesigned Website Officially Launched: March 13, 2017
Alluser email was sent the week before Spring Break alerting staff and faculty that the new website would be live when they returned from Spring Break. Efforts made to keep all previous links active and point to the equivalent or relevant information. However, due to significant changes in the web architecture and consolidation of pages, issues will arise. They will be resolved as quickly as possible.
Rebuilding and Launching: January - March 2017
Page templates delivered by OmniUpdate and process of building our current content into those responsive templates. Planned launch of the new website is March 2017.
Cleanup & Consolidation: June - December 2016
Deadlines were extended and emails sent to Web Maintainers and Group Owners to encourage them to review their pages. For those not done by September, we started the cleanup and for larger areas, we sent out spreadsheets with the proposed consolidation for them to approve.
Web Maintainer Meetings - June 2016
Held over 20 sessions to meet with almost 200 Web Maintainers to provide updates on
the Web Redesign project and ask for their help. The Goal: they need to review and
consolidate their current information and delete old and duplicate pages/information
to help reduce our page count and move toward longer scrolling pages for our new responsive
design. Deadline to respond: July 14, 2016.
Online Meetings: March - October 2016
PBSC and Converge worked on creating personas, the message matrix, SEO review strategy, wireframes for the information architecture, navigation, and template design.
Site Visit and Feedback Meetings: February 2016
Our partner, Converge Consulting, visited PBSC and met with numerous groups, across all disciplines, including current and future students to gather feedback.
Web Redesign Partner: October - December 2015
Research began to find a valued partner to help us with our Web Redesign. We needed a fresh look and a responsive design for students to use on their mobile devices. Converge Consulting was the chosen partner and the contract was signed December 2015.
