project » teachinghistory.org redesign
This project began in November, 2009, with the goals of improving the user interface, providing places for new types of content, and structuring the mark-up to make it easier to add new types of content. Extensive collaboration with the content providers and the Drupal development team produced a consensus on information architecture, color palette, and treatment of content to make it more interactive, and visually appealing and engaging to repeat visitors.
In a recent study of about 300 end users, 98 percent reported that they found what they were looking for while visiting; 41 percent said they found more than they were looking for.
