New design for Software for Learning – what do you think?

We’re redeveloping the Software for Learning website – a catalogue of software recommended by NZ teachers for use in the classroom. Tell me what you think of the new design for the home page – you can see it by clicking on the image on the left.

Would you be more likely to search for software on this website than on the current one? Is the purpose of the website clear? Is the layout of the content engaging or confusing?

I’m very excited about the new website – it will include links to inspiring student work, information on where schools can go for support, reviews submitted by teachers, and tags so that you can find related software easily. They’ll also be information on social software (web 2.0) and links to the curriculum and, most importantly, improved searching and browsing for software.

The new website will be launched in November. In the meantime, we’ve been making improvements to the current site too:

    I like it! At first glance it does seem a bit wordy. The clean layout is effective. Tab bar is great (shame the tki colours don’t match! – maybe the tki bar can disappear and re-appear when needed via a tab?) Search and browse buttons are clear. ‘Student work’ link will hopefully bring teachers to the site regularly.

    Will be good to try it out when it is live!

    Thanks

    Hi Ashish, The design is just a graphic at this stage – none of the links work. The new website will be launched in early November, and the links will be working then! Thanks – Sarah
