In preparation for the launch of Johns Hopkins University's new-look website later this year, the Office of Communications is asking the university community for feedback about the new JHU.edu home page.
The page is showcased in a short video, which describes a few of the site's features and also outlines some of the research and decision-making that went into the new design.
"Our goals with this redesign are to create a new virtual front door that gives visitors who don't know Johns Hopkins—especially prospective students—a better sense of the university and its community, while also improving people's ability to quickly and easily find the information they're looking for," said Glenn Bieler, vice president for communications. "We used extensive analytics of site visitors, along with continuous feedback, to inform this exciting redesign."
The new JHU.edu—expected to launch in the coming months—is being designed and developed by members of the Office of Communications, in consultation with stakeholders around the university. Planned enhancements include more intuitive navigation; an improved search function; and short profiles of Johns Hopkins students, faculty, and staff members.
The university website was last redesigned in 2009.
To submit feedback about the home page design, watch the video that accompanies this article, then complete a brief online survey. The entire process should take no more than 15 minutes.
