On Monday 12 October our new University website will be revealed publicly, heralding a significant change in our approach to digital governance, culture and communications and the way we tell our story.
“The Web Transformation Project will offer a substantially enhanced user experience of our digital space for our key audiences,” says Web Project Director Richard Powell. “With the help of many across campus we’ve accomplished a great deal but there is still much to do before we launch.”
Rich explains the long-term scope of the project encompass both the staff.mq.edu.au and students.mq.edu.au sites, however the October launch will only reveal our public site mq.edu.au.
“Content from our existing site has now been migrated to the new 6000-page website,” says Rich. “Last week we revealed the skeleton site to content owners to give them a first look at how the site is structured.”
Rich says given the significant number of public-facing pages in scope, content owners will be working tirelessly in the next week to make sure their content has successfully been migrated.
“We believe we’ve captured everyone who has a public-facing page, but if a page owner thinks they may have been missed, we need them to contact us as soon as possible,” says Rich.
