Preparing for Phase One

Wow, we’ve come a long way! Looking back on our website redesign timeline (spanning back to Spring of 2013) you can see a lot of ground covered. A new CMS, design partner, focus groups, user personas, site maps, style tiles, page strategies, wireframes, new staff, writing for the web training, employee profiles… and that’s just a small segment!

We’re happy to share that we’ve begun the process of building out top tier or “phase one” pages and sections which we plan to launch publicly later this summer. These sections include areas like the homepage, news, events, directory, admissions, research, arts, campus life, about, visit, give, alumni, parents, and the academics homepage.

After the launch of “phase one,” we’ll turn our attention back to working with departments/offices on finalizing their content, providing training in the new CMS (OU Campus), and launching those sections. This will be an ongoing process of working on and launching department sites on a rolling basis throughout the 15-16 academic year.

Although we’ve come a long way, we have much work to do. We look forward to reaching out and working with the many talented departments and offices on campus soon!
